Hello, I’m Kelly Ditta

Global Event Strategist, ESN


Aligning with the Maritz best practices discovered by managing over 8,400 events annually and $1.2 billion of total spend, with my 30+ years of managing and sourcing for global events, together we are able to be an invaluable resource and advocate for our customers – helping you manage extraordinary events!

This extensive global event expertise and buying power allows us to help our customers discover emerging trends, benchmark destinations and venues, all while helping to deliver more dollars to your bottom line. And thanks to the knowledge and industry relationships established by contracting 4.6 million room nights annually, you can be confident while working with us that you are receiving the optimum combination of rates, concessions, and terms every time.


“We learned about Maritz  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  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.”
