I have over twenty years of experience in the hotel industry. I am currently an Event Hotel & Venue Selection Specialist with HelmsBriscoe. The Global Leader in Meetings Procurement & Site Selection.
I am headquartered in Los Angeles and handle programs worldwide.
HelmsBriscoe is the undisputed industry leader in Event Hotel & Venue Selection breaking records in 2018 with $1.42 Billion in room revenue representing 6.9 Million group room nights booked for over 51,000 programs in 110 countries. Somewhere around the world, someone responds to a HelmsBriscoe RFP every 2.5 minutes — a compelling purchasing power we leverage for our clients by way of enhanced rates, availability, added values, greater concessions and favorable contract terms.
Hotels' robust occupancy in 2019 are driving rates to heights unseen since pre-recession years. Organizations, more than ever, have a solid ally in HelmsBriscoe to navigate rate and contract negotiations. I handle the minutiae and legwork in finding the most suitable hotel accommodations and event venue at the best value and terms for your group (ten rooms or more). I am your dedicated Advocate from the start of search through the conclusion of your event.
My service is inclusive of hotel/venue research, sending out Request for Proposals, negotiation, contract consultancy and advocacy on your behalf every step of the way.
All this invaluable service comes at absolutely no cost to any organization.
