Site selection  Whether you’re looking for the perfect location for a conference, meeting, or special event, Peggy Young & Associates can assist through our extensive contacts in the hospitality industry, and our relationships with a vast array of unique properties. We focus on what is best for each client, not on commissions or hotel reward points.

Contract negotiation*  We specialize in writing contracts that provide substantial cost savings and protection for our clients. There is no fee for this service. Hotels remunerate Peggy Young & Associates, and our contracts specify that hotel rates are not raised to compensate for this payment. Our service is unique in that once a contract is signed, we continue to provide complimentary assistance to ensure cost savings, and review and negotiate banquet event orders.

Strategic management  Peggy Young & Associates offers an array of comprehensive services. We provide a complimentary one-hour consultation to discuss and assess your needs. We will work with your organization, chair your committee, or take the lead to assure an engaging program for your attendees and meet your desired outcomes. Services are contracted for a project fee with an agreed-upon scope-of-work and timeline.

Creativity and branding  Peggy Young & Associates creates unique events. We will determine your theme and develop imaginative and innovative solutions. We offer promotional marketing concepts and event tie-ins to create memorable and distinctive conferences, meetings, and events.
