Core business services:
The Nix team focuses on budgets, venue and vendor selection, contracts, logistics, and financial controls. We connect with our clients’ national staff, the board of directors and the local host office. In short, we manage the structure of your event to your specifications, and we do it down to every detail. We perform thorough audits of contracts, and we provide you with complete final reporting. We have on-site expertise to make sure that everything in the contracts is delivered as specified. And those clients that engage us to provide comprehensive management services receive the Nix Coordination Fee Guarantee.
Options for delivery of services:
Nix Conference and Meeting Management offers its clients a range of service options:
1. Comprehensive Services – total coordination of the structure of your event.
This includes site and vendor selection; on-site event management; and financial management. Our comprehensive service option also includes the Nix Coordination Fee Guarantee.
2. Specific Services – only those services needed to supplement your internal staff’s capabilities.
3. Tradeshow Management, both pre-event and on-site services.
4. Our On-line Conference and Exhibitor Registration and Housing Reservations system can be provided as a stand-alone service module for any event.
No matter how comprehensive or specific your organization’s event management needs are, Nix can make sure you have the time to develop your event program, your revenue opportunities, and attendee relations.
