Management Services

The cost of operating an event department and managing event staff can be excessive. This is particularly true when event management is not your organization’s core competency. That’s where PWi comes in.

Associations, CVBs, convention centers, and private event ownership entities are outsourcing conference management in increasing numbers to experience the strategy’s numerous benefits:

  • Cost effectiveness.
  • Reduced risk associated with staff turnover.
  • Maximizes the industry knowledge associated with the event.
  • Ensures the highest levels of efficiency and effectiveness working with the numerous vendors required for a show’s production.

Bringing in professionals from the for-profit tradeshow world ensures your show is produced according to industry best standard practices. Using the latest technology and services available, the result is efficiency, productivity, and maximized return.

Consulting Services

The breadth of expertise required to offer professional consulting is immense. The industry executives associated with PWi’s GEMA network provide that experience across every facet of show production. Our consultations have produced fruitful collaborations that have accomplished everything from changing the way our industry operates to producing record-breaking events and shows:

  • First ever to sell a tradeshow to a Tier-1 convention center.
  • Consulted with numerous leading convention centers regarding show management structures, ownership profiles and program feasibility within the public-private partnership arena of event ownership and production.
  • Assisted associations with vendor/services contract negotiations and review, budget auditing, and sales CRM environments.

Whether your organization is an association, convention center, convention and visitor bureau, event ownership group, or any other entity, PWi is the perfect resource when informed decisions must be made.

Trade Shows

As an owner/producer of numerous trade shows, conferences, and events, PWi knows what it takes to develop and manage them from concept to conclusion. You may have an idea and need incubator assistance to develop and prepare an idea to launch. Or perhaps you have a solid idea and plan but lack the resources to bring it to fruition. In every case, our team can ensure your event gets off the ground and achieves maximum results.

International Pavillions

Going global is a logical next step for some growing companies as well as organizations and their membership. PWi negotiates exhibition space in international events to make that next level possible. Our U.S. Pavilions provide the opportunity to present products and services in a cost-effective environment that generates the greatest possible ROI.
