That we have contracted CMNZ for six conferences is testimony to the positive relationship and confidence that we will have a successfully managed conference.

They bring a sense of fun and a can-do attitude which brightens the task of putting on a conference. They take the daily tasks and stresses away from me allowing me to concentrate on the delegates and speakers. In the previous 14 years, with other conference organisers I found that I was expected to be making decisions about conference problems and fighting those fires that can flare up from time to time. With CMNZ I was not burdened at all with such expectations. They simply sorted it out.

Delivering outstanding value is central to the Convention Management philosophy. We have an open book policy when it comes to all accounting practises as they relate to your event. We continually update our event budgets and will talk you through the reasons for each individual cost. We do not charge additional fees for any work that is undertaken and at no stage do we attempt to hide extra costs in miscellaneous budget areas. Transparent and honest is the way we like to operate.

Our fee structure is based on actual hours worked and historical information compiled from conferences of a similar nature, size and duration. Invoices will be billed monthly. Our fees can be built into the registration fees, eliminating a direct cost to the organising committee.

There are many factors that can affect the total hours it takes to organise a great conference and the fewer hours we spend on your event, the lower the cost. If at any stage there is a possibility that actual hours may exceed our initial estimates, we will bring this to your attention well in advance and where appropriate, present options for completing remaining tasks in-house.

At the conclusion of the conference, we will provide you with a suite of post-conference analysis and evaluation tools, including full financial reports and registration data, to measure effectiveness and benchmark the results against your projections.
