RETURN ON INVESTMENT
One of the most important elements of any business project, product, or decision is the return on investment; how much earned when compared with how much invested. Working closely with the client, APMI will ensure the investment of time, money, and other resources into a program is maximized, providing the clients attendees the best possible experience while remaining within the agreed budgetary parameters.
By leveraging APMIs knowledge, skills, and abilities in the planning and operational phases of an event the client will realize significant savings, decreasing the expense of the event. This savings will exceed any fees related to the APMI engagement, thus collaborating with APMI opens access to subject matter expertise while providing an added economic windfall. The access to the wealth of APMI industry insight related to pre-planning, transportation logistical support, event operations, set-up/strike, and fiscal reconciliation is essentially gratis.
Below represents a client situational scenario (see note) outlining the APMI value proposition:
No internal / dedicated event planners
In addition to the direct fiscal saving of nearly 30% in the above example APMI provides, there is an indirect savings as well by decreasing the time and effort required by a clients’ organization to plan and conduct a meeting or incentive event. Thus, the clients’ personnel remain focused on conducting core business operations and not operating in areas where they may not have well developed knowledge, skills, and abilities e.g. meeting and incentive planning and operations.
In the scenario listed above an APMI engagement would preserve and return $75,000-100,000 to the client after APMI fees in addition to over 600 hours of client employee productivity.
Note: This scenario is a representation of an event. Specific pricing, economies, and efficiencies related to any specific event is influenced by number of attendees, city, hotel, time of year, amenities, and other salient factors.
