Your events are significant investments to be protected and nurtured

Your events are significant investments to be protected and nurtured

Andavo Meetings & Incentives | Denver Corporate Event Company

Our clients spend 3% or more of their annual gross revenues on events, representing major financial investments designed to achieve critical business outcomes. Andavo Consulting works with organizations to ensure their meetings and events are protected from financial loss, legal liability and loss of brand integrity.

Working across 75 countries over 25 years, our team of expert consultants have helped companies prepare, respond and recover from the unpredictable and unexpected. The one common factor we find with all of them is no matter how flawlessly the meeting has been planned, unexpected disruptions will occur.

Call it Murphy’s Law. Call it a foreseeable part of doing business in a fast-paced world. Call it a part of the human experience. Regardless how big or small, obstacles exist with the potential to derail your meeting.

Global Terrorism statistics

GLOBAL TERRORISM STATISTICS

Corporate Event Company in Denver, Colorado | Andavo Meetings & Incentives

As the global meeting landscape expands, so does the list of potential threats. Hotels are now the number one target for terrorism attacks, according to the National Consortium for the Study of Terrorism. Hotels represent commercial culture and values with the opportunity to cause fear, death and destruction to a mass audience.

Generally in a weak security posture, hotels and conference centers are easy to breach and infiltrate, requiring minimal resources and planning. This sobering fact requires the meeting and hospitality industry to adopt new approaches and industry-wide security and response training in order to protect the safety of all guests and meeting participants.

Our Crisis Management Playbook training includes preparing to respond and recover from an active shooter.

CONSULTING COMMENDATIONS

CONSULTING COMMENDATIONS

Corporate Event Planning in Denver, Colorado | Andavo Meetings & Incentives

“Hurricane Sandy was on its way to hit Baltimore on opening day of our 2500-person Summit. The Andavo team worked tirelessly to implement a multi-layered crisis management plan so the program could go on, even facing the possibilities of power outage, flooding, food and water shortage and medical emergencies. Our foremost concern was the safety and well-being of all participants and our challenge was to hope for the best and prepare for the worst.

 

The fact that decisions had to be made in the face of major uncertainty and lack of predictability made this Summit not only memorable for advancing the mission of the organization, but for the equally compelling lessons in crisis management leadership. Without the Andavo team, the outcomes could have been dramatically different.”

Teddy Basham-Witherington, former Chief Marketing Officer Out & Equal Workplace Advocates

WE ENABLE YOU

WE ENABLE YOU

Corporate Meeting Planners in Denver | Andavo Meetings & Incentives

Our consulting practice will enable your meetings team to:

The goals of our consulting practice will enable your meetings team to:

Better protect the organization against risks, disruptions and unexpected costs.

Collaborate with you to achieve the Return on your Investment (ROI) and the Return on Engagement (ROE) of your meeting initiatives.

While we cannot stop event catastrophes from happening, we will educate and train your teams to assess your vulnerabilities and learn how to confidently prepare to respond and recover.

Defining Strategies

Your events team will define what matters most to achieving event strategies that align with your organization’s values, culture, and business goals. These will include risk assessment and response plans designed to protect you from financial and legal losses when events are challenged by out of control costs or unexpected crises which can seriously impact positive business outcomes or even event cancellations.

Enhancing Risk Assessment

Your events team will know how to conduct risk assessments specific to each event. They will understand how to identify what types of disruptions are more likely to occur as well as how to prepare for catastrophes which might be unlikely but result in grave consequences.

Drafting an Event Crisis Management Playbook

Your events team will design a playbook based on the areas of identified risk so that the organization will know what to do when “bad things happen to good meetings.” This playbook will be replicated for all types of future events to properly prepare to respond and recover from disruptions and catastrophes.

Preventing Financial Loss

Your events team will tackle the area of risk of financial loss due to poorly drafted meeting and event contracts and determine the current state of contract vulnerability. Team members with authority to negotiate and sign contracts will be trained on the top 10 most critical contract terms which are drafted in favor of the hotels and venues and pose a great risk to business and financial loss. These terms are due to unreasonable attrition and cancellation penalties, a hotel’s right to walk all or part of the entire group, undisclosed construction during the event, and excessive surprise fees, taxes and surcharges.

Increasing Investments

Your event teams will know how to “show me the money.” Stakeholders from executive, legal, procurement and HR, will be able to identify how events can be measured as an asset, not just a cost. The result will be a set of metrics for return on engagement (ROE) and return on investment (ROI) which measure both tangible (actual savings) and intangible (attendee learning, application, and business impact) outcomes from your significant events.
