What is Total Meeting Management?
Baskow and Associates total meeting management is a turnkey solution to your internal and external meeting needs. Our services are customized to include the following elements to ensure the ultimate success of your program:
Consultation - Baskow will work with you to determine meeting goals, objectives and message to achieve your desired results. If requested, we'll help you establish your budget and discuss logistical factors to guide the selection of the appropriate location and venues. Our professionals have been managing meetings for many years and are ready to help you with yours!
Site Selection - Based on parameters established during the consultation phase, Baskow and Associates will prepare a complete presentation of all options available to you. Upon selection of venue, Baskow and Associates will arrange an on-site inspection of facilities to ensure suitability for your program.
Contract Negotiation - On your behalf, Baskow and Associates will negotiate the initial contract including rates, contract terms and conditions. Our team of meeting professionals specializes in negotiating the "tough issues" such as room rate, food & beverage minimums, cancellation and attrition policies as well as concessions including complimentary rooms, upgrades, staff reduced rates and meeting space cost.
Registration Process - Our powerful online registration process maximizes the utilization of your rooms and space through the use of advanced database technologies.

By providing you with real-time reports accessible through a management website, you are kept up-to-date on trends, patterns of registration and established deadlines; we assist you with being proactive in making decisions affecting the budget and success of your program.
Website Development - We'll register a unique name for your meeting and create a professional web site to house your information and registration pages. Depending on the needs of your program, the site can vary from a simple registration form and information page to a more extensive informational site which includes an online registration component. All sites requesting credit card information from the user employ the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology to encrypt communications between the client and server. The time-line for website development is based on the complexity required and will be determined on an individual basis.
Real Time Reporting - Information is critical and timely-- up-to-date information is imperative. Our advanced registration technologies will provide you and your designated team members a web-based access to view and print real-time reports on any aspect of your event. Housing lists, arrival/departure patterns, meeting participation, scheduling, function space allocation, registration data, function attendance, special requests and much more is provided to you - accurate to the second you view the report.
We also monitor your registration activity, allowing us to be responsive on your behalf. This proactive approach enables you to make timely and well-informed decisions in all areas of your program affecting the final budget and achievement of your goals.
