An association management company like Diversified Management Services has the capacity to handle anything, including organizing and coordinating your association’s numerous events and meetings. Find out how DMS can plan an event that stays true to you.
Every association of any size requires meetings or events. Meetings for your members, meetings for your board, annual meetings, parties, conferences, trade shows and everything else in between. Conducting quality meetings is a benefit for your membership and is essential for a thriving organization. Throughout the year, Diversified Management Services organizes events that see more than 10,000 attendees, and we are experts in creating conferences and meetings that fit your needs and goals.
Every organization has different meeting and conference needs, and Diversified Management Services can arrange the right ones for you. We manage all logistical aspects of the meeting including on-site management, registration, promotion and speaker coordination. We’ll set budgets and agendas, coordinate registration and fee collection as well as post-conference surveys. For larger conferences or multiday events, we conduct contract negotiations for all aspects of the meeting including hotel, food and beverage, entertainment and speaker contracts.
In addition to providing event planning services, Diversified Management Services provides meeting space to its organizations. Two fully furnished boardrooms and a flexible event space that can be used in any number of ways, from a classroom to a reception area, are available for meetings of all kinds.
The advantage of Diversified Management Services is that we can negotiate on your behalf to secure the meeting venue and set an agenda—we handle the myriad of things that go into planning a meeting so you can focus on the important aspects of your association. DMS provides event planning for multiple clients and has experience and expertise in all kinds of negotiations. When its important that you get the best deal or arrangement, DMS is the partner to trust.
Our focus is always to make your organization better, not to change it, and we work hard to understand your organization, what makes it great and where it should be headed, and then we help you get there. Freeing up your time to move your association forward is a huge part of our event planning services.
Our biggest concern at first was handing over responsibility to anyone outside of our organization—would you make that responsibility your own, could you be trusted and held accountable. We could not have been more pleased at the way DMS took ownership of their assignments and took on an attitude of professional teamwork. They made our staff feel that they were fully invested in the outcome of our events and eventually earned a spot as family members within our organization.
