They asked. We've answered. Browse the questions and answers below to learn more about who we are and what we do.
We work with professional societies, trade associations, association management companies, show management companies, and corporations of all sizes. Some clients don’t have any meeting planning staff at all – and we’re happy to fill that role. Others have their own internal program and meeting planning staff and we support them by taking some of the logistical planning and venue/vendor sourcing off their plates, so they can focus more on audience generation, sponsorship sales, and program/content management.
Who does Aspire work with?
What types of meetings and events does Aspire specialize in?
We specialize in meetings, conventions, trade shows and conferences, in a B2B environment. We have extensive experience in trade show management, medical/scientific meetings, as well as online learning platforms and digital events (live streaming).
We already have an in-house planning team. How can Aspire help us?
We work with in-house planning teams and staff all the time! Having worked for associations for more than 18 years, we understand the extensive scope of responsibilities that your internal team is managing – strategy, budgets, sourcing/contracting, marketing, sales, logistics, technology, production, housing and registration, AV/production, exhibits (just to name a few).
Allow us to handle your venue sourcing/contracting. We’ll save your planning team 35-40 hours of site selection and negotiation time per meeting, while mitigating risk to your organization and providing better value to your bottom line.
We can also recommend and source service providers (A/V and production companies, General service contractors/decorators, Destination management companies, Mobile Apps), saving your team additional time and cost. Our network of service providers consists of the biggest names in the industry – tell us what you need, and we’ll recommend the best partner for you!
Identify the “pain points” of your planning team – and let us help! We’ll work hand-in-hand with your team to ensure that your event strategy is executed, your budget upheld, and no detail is overlooked.
What makes Aspire different?
We set incredibly high standards for the work that we do – we pride ourselves on our attention to detail, and providing flawless execution of each meeting and convention that we produce. But more importantly than that, our #1 goal is to make every event better than the last.
We look at your event goals, take a deep dive into all of the data from your most recent event (attendance statistics, surveys, registration reports, retention rates), and use this information to truly understand the “Why?” behind all aspects of your event. We want to know why your participants attend, why exhibitors and sponsors support your event, and why they all come back year after year – or more importantly, why they aren’t! We believe that the data tells a story…and part of our job is determining what is still working well, what we can work together to improve, and how your next event will be the one that your stakeholders simply can’t afford to miss!
