Impact Unlimited Combines Attrition Management and Skilled Negotiations to Document Over 33% Savings on Annual Meeting Budgets

Impact Unlimited, a leading provider of brand communications for events, meetings, and exhibits worldwide, offers clients added savings through streamlined event management and planning. With the current challenging economy and meeting cutbacks, Impact delivers cost savings through assertive and skilled negotiations and attrition management.

"We understand that all meeting planners are looking not just to reduce costs, but to document those savings," said Sandy Pizzarusso, Director of Meetings and Events at Impact Unlimited. "Through a combination of efforts, from keeping our eye on hotel attrition, to simply negotiating better rates and packages, Impact can not only lower costs, but we can provide the documentation to prove it."

Impact performs cost savings for its clients in several areas:
1.    Attrition Management: limiting the client's risk and liability of incurring unnecessary charges such as the expense for unused hotel rooms
2.    Hard Negotiations - actual money that the client has saved through lowered pricing
3.    Soft Negotiations - securing that both the client and the hotel or venue share certain liabilities so that the client does not incur extraneous fees

"Impact recently saved over 33% from a client's annual budget. That amount was greater than our annual fee, so in effect we paid for ourselves and still returned additional savings for our client," said Pizzarusso. "When seeing the documented savings, that client commented, 'You just made me look like a superstar to my boss.'"

Upon completion of an event, convention or meeting, Impact provides its clients with a cost savings report which itemizes each fee and then shows the final cost and savings after Impact's negotiated price. The report provides a clear overview of savings and return on investment for clients to then use for their own internal purposes including answering that tough question from management; "What have you done for me lately." The report is available monthly for ongoing programs or by project and is free of charge for Impact clients.
