Hello, I’m Carol McCormack
Senior Event Strategist, ESN
A commitment to building strong client and industry partnerships is critical in today’s competitive market.
As a Senior Event Strategist for Maritz Global Events, I build relationships on dependability, strong work ethic and trust. My clients know I am committed to guiding and advising them throughout their event journey. During the recent pandemic, I used my industry experience, negotiating expertise and the collective knowledge garnered from Maritz Global Events to save my clients over $1 Million in potential cancellation fees.
From start to finish, my clients can count on me to understand their needs, guide them through challenges and serve as their trusted advisor.
“Carol has been a tremendous asset to our association, working with us to find creative resolution when challenges arise and helping us plan ahead to meet the changing needs of our conferences. Her knowledge of the industry and thoughtful advice have been invaluable. She understands our goals and works with us to negotiate contracts and select sites that suit our culture and participants. She is a valued member of our meeting team.”
“The Rolls-Royce events team in North America has worked with Maritz Global Events and Carol McCormack for many years. As our third-party meetings management partner, we consider Carol an extension and valued member of our staff. We are confident in her abilities and know she has our best interest at heart. We have an enormous comfort level knowing she is applying her expertise to our hotel selection, negotiation and contract processes. She is exceptionally thorough and is quick to follow through. She is gracious for our business, regardless how big or small. Carol helps us look good by freeing up our time to concentrate on exceeding our customers’ expectations. Carol is a joy to work with and we look forward to many more years of service from her and Maritz Global Events.”

“Carol has assisted our organization with sourcing, site visits and contract negotiations for our last four annual conferences. I used to do all the work myself. Being able to hand those areas of responsibility over to Experient and Carol has been a tremendous help on my work load. I have been able to spend more time on other aspects of the conference and also on my other areas of responsibility. I trust Carol and I know she will always take good care of us when it comes to our annual conference needs.”

Carol is an invaluable resource in her ability to blend her in-depth knowledge of the hotel/meeting industry with her understanding of our association to find the perfect conference venues that continually meet our needs. The contract expertise and protection that we gain through this relationship is also invaluable. In situations where we’ve had to enlist the help of Carol and Maritz Global Events in hotel negotiations and contract disputes, we were never disappointed with the results. Carol’s experience, relationships and respect within the industry continues to be the primary drivers that keeps us coming back to Carol and Maritz Global Events each year.
