BizBash and New York Guest Team Up to Launch “Boots on the Ground” to Offer Support Services for Meeting and Event Organizers
An Army of Trained Professionals Are at the Ready
New York, NY—March 12, 2014—David Adler, C.E.O. of BizBash, and John Williams, president of New York Guest, announced today that their companies are forming a new joint venture called “Boots on the Ground” to provide logistical meeting and event support for busy event departments at corporations and associations, as well as for third-party planners. The service will provide unbundled services for events, helping with site inspections, room block contracts, transportation, ticketing, and other unique services.
According to Adler: “We’ve discovered that event organizers often need an extra hand, especially for out-of-town events. We are now able to offer a team of professionals who are just a phone call or an email away and are ready to help, without the need for a long-term contract.”
“Our goal is to fill a gap we’ve seen in the event industry, providing a much-needed service. While a lot of event assistance programs are available through RFP systems it helps to use an experienced team on the ground to make sure everything happens without a hitch”, said Williams.
