Hello, I’m Peter J. Berry, CAE
Event Strategist, ESN
After a 34 year career as a CEO in association management, I joined Experient as a National Sales Manager.
I first became acquainted with Experient in the 1990’s and became a customer when I was President of Association Resources Inc., an association management firm. Although we had four meeting planners in our Meetings and Events Department, we could not resist using the buying power benefits and expertise of Experient. We wanted our staff to focus on the content of our client meetings and not be consumed by all of the associated meeting logistics necessary to holding successful meetings.
I am available to put my experience to work for your organization and become a “trusted advisor” to you. I can serve as an extension of your staff and bring the meeting industry’s best practices to your team.
And thanks to the collective data and knowledge secured by contracting 4.6 million room nights annually, you can be confident you are receiving the optimum combination of rates, concessions, and terms every time.
“By some stroke of luck, we learned about Experient two years ago. It began with an inquiry to find a new location for one of our events and has blossomed into a relationship that is akin to having extended our staff! Experient uses their expertise to thoroughly investigate properties, to provide timely follow-ups and reminders, to negotiate contracts on our behalf, and provide candid and generous advice. Experient has taken the time and care to secure excellent locations and accommodations tailored to our needs and continue to be a tremendous resource to our organization.”
National Nonprofit Educational Council
As a Certified Association Executive (CAE) combined with my previous career in association management, I have come to understand that I am in a unique position to be of assistance to associations attempting to reach the next level in the development of their meetings and organizations.
In my “second career”, I have committed to also be engaged as a volunteer leader in the meetings profession. I just completed my two year term as the Chairman of the Connecticut Convention and Sports Bureau and I currently serve on the PCMA Medical Meetings Task Force and the ASAE International Section Council.
My Personal Statement
“Let me put my years of experience to work for your association. I am eager to learn more about your organization and to be of assistance.”
