What You'll Learn

What You'll Learn

Please join others with 10+ years of A/E/C marketing experience as we explore how to tap the expertise of service providers to our strategic advantage.

  • Using providers (of both goods and services) to increase value, add new perspectives, reduce cost and extend internal staffs
  • Leveraging existing relationships, while being open to new providers
  • Staying current on best-in-class, new ideas and pricing trends
  • When do RFPs make sense?
  • Provider coordination — when is many, too many?
  • Managing concurrent competitive relationships

Moderated by Sylvia Montgomery, CPSM, Senior Partner at Hinge, this senior level program offers both best practices and a peer-to-peer forum to help you further develop and grow as a marketing professional.

Please bring your service provider recommendations (photographers, caterers, creative agencies, florists, copy writers, printers, and any others) to share at the meeting. We will also circulate a list of suggested service providers to all attendees after the event.

Wine, beer, and appetizers will be served.
