Hello, I’m Michael Deegan

Event Strategist, ESN


The one constant that will never change is the reality that things can and will go wrong occasionally. We are your constant advocate throughout the event cycle.   Our preferred status with all of the major hotel chains allow you to receive pre-negotiated terms that allow a heightened focus on the additional issues unique to your event. The end result is reducing risk while saving you time. 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.


“We learned about Maritz Global Events while looking for a new location for one of our events and it’s blossomed into a relationship akin to having extended our staff! They use their expertise to thoroughly investigate properties, provide timely follow-ups, negotiate contracts on our behalf, and provide candid and generous advice. Maritz Global Events has really taken the time and care to secure excellent locations and accommodations that are tailored to our needs and they continue to be a tremendous resource to our organization.”
