Hello, I’m Steve Werntz, CEM, CASE
Event Strategist, ESN
When selecting the optimum destination or venue, it is dangerous to focus primarily on rates and space. Most of our clients report that significant cost factors emerge from AV, wifi, off-site needs, and production expenses. By approaching sourcing projects holistically, we protect our customers from add-on or surprise fees associated with these critical event expense categories. 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.”

When I’m not with my family or working, I’m coaching girl’s lacrosse. My varsity team has many girls who I’ve coached since they were in grade school.
