Aventri will offer the following:
- Essentials platform (providing the marketing, website, registration, and survey tools to successfully manage any project from your clients’ Executive Board meeting to major conferences) at a significant discount off our list prices for any member in good standing on a minimum two-year contract. This discount applies to all four products in the essentials platform as well as providing white label branding.
- Complete venue sourcing solution. Not just an eRFP tool, Aventri’ venue sourcing provides a complete end-to-end sourcing solution that automatically captures all concession values, tracks bid iterations from hotels, and presents all bid summaries in a concise, presentable fashion. Put an end to cutting and pasting hotel responses and power your sourcing business to new heights. With a two-year contract, Aventri will provide Meeting Planners Unite members a free satisfaction-guaranteed trial for a limited period. We’re so confident in the product that you can opt out any time after the trial period on the venue sourcing product – but you won’t know how you ever lived without it!
