Event Options is made up of event professionals that have owned and operated event companies, producing corporate events all over the globe. When sourcing for the best products and services for a particular event, it would often take days and multiple requests for suppliers to eventually provide the specs on the items they owned – prices, quantity, colors, sizes, materials, pictures, as well as their multi-day rates, minimum order, delivery fee and more. Days were spent reviewing and consolidating all the information from various sources – Word, Excel, PowerPoint, PDFs, emails, and websites – to choose the ideal items included within the presentation for our client.
There is no national event company or online distribution platform that currently exist.
