Minneapolis, MN (PRWEB) February 16, 2015
Association management companies are in constant need of quality resources and partners to successfully serve their clients. Kris Finger, CMM, Director of Global Accounts with HelmsBriscoe will attend the 2015 AMCi Annual Meeting in Aventura, Florida February 18-20, 2015 to reconnect with existing clients and provide information about the changing hotel/meetings industry to attendees of the event.
AMCs and their clients are a leading consumer of hotel meeting space and room blocks. But the market is changing from the buyer's market of a few years ago to a seller's market -- and hotels are changing their tactics when it comes to measuring the value of a meeting. Lack of availability and compression in the hotel industry will likely have a significant impact on the profitability of association meetings.
Finger has an extensive background in association management and understands the unique challenges AMC owners face -- having owned an AMC for over 15 years. "Keeping AMCs up to date on trends within the industry and delivering services that offer client-centric results is my passion" said Finger. "It's not easy for AMC account managers to juggle the multiple priorities and deadlines they face, so partnering with HelmsBriscoe is a way to put more time back into their day."
Attendees of the AMCi Annual Meeting are encouraged to seek out Kris Finger during the 3 day conference at Turnberry Isle to discuss how HelmsBriscoe can provide value and support to the clients they serve and navigate the changing hotel/convention center marketplace.
