Conventions

McVeigh Global Meetings and Events is a leader in all aspects of International Convention/Association management. We currently support multiple Associations, non-profits and Fortune 1000 corporations for International Convention Management on an Enterprise-wide basis ranging from 5 to 10,000 participants housed in as many as 20 hotels.

As part of our expertise, we bring to the forefront and leverage our valuable relationships with the associations themselves and their dedicated suppliers/housing bureaus. We bring the knowledge of convention cycles and booking procedures for both Sponsored and Non-Sponsored Activities within a convention, housing and convention registration.


Exhibit, Sponsorship & Advertising Sales

McVeigh has a network of experienced sales professionals who assist our client organizations to create and implement strategic sales plans, explore new revenue opportunities, and cultivate long-term relationships with key decision makers and thought leaders. The McVeigh Global team will look to increase revenues through exhibit and sponsorship sales, targeted year-round partner programs and/or the sale of à la carte offerings. This hyper-focused strategy has helped many of our clients meet and exceed their budgeted goals.

Convention Registration:

For corporate clients, the McVeigh team is well versed in securing group registration as early as possible (early bird registration) to obtain the group discounted rates. Due to our relationships, we are able to secure these registrations and extend the deadline required in many circumstances as well as have agreements in place that they will hold these early bird registrations without any names – as a TBD for us. (Until the countries provide the names)
