AE Ventures Introduces Engagements Guarantee

Hosted event producer reinforces its unique value proposition with a doubling or quadrupling make-good policy for sponsors that experience a rare missed meeting.

In the next 10 months, AE Ventures will orchestrate more than 10,000 scheduled one-on-one meetings and 500 boardroom presentations at its uniquely valuable hosted style events—the Total Tech Summit (Nov. 1-3, 2017 in Orlando, Fla.), TecHome Builder Summit (Dec. 4-6, 2017 in Phoenix), TecHomeX California (March 19-21, 2018 in Pasadena, Calif.) and TecHomeX East (May 8-10, 2018 in Mashantucket, Conn.). Based on historical analysis, more than 98 percent of those meetings and presentations will be attended and executed onsite, but, for the rare occasion of a missed connection, AE Ventures is instituting a new Engagements Guarantee to buttress the value proposition for sponsoring companies.

The AE Ventures Engagements Guarantee is as follows:

  • For every scheduled one-on-one meeting missed at the event, AE will both work to arrange a post-event engagement by web conference or in-person meeting with the guest AND provide two (2) complimentary one-on-one meetings at the next edition of the event. 
  • For every “guest miss” of a boardroom presentation, AE will work to arrange a post-event engagement AND provide four (4) complimentary one-on-one meetings at the next edition of the event.

In addition, AE Ventures has tweaked its event schedule and public space plans to decrease the probability of missed meetings and presentations—cutting down footsteps between time-sensitive activities and scheduling 10 minutes between one-on-one meetings to decrease tardy meeting arrivals. A communications campaign is also underway to help guests understand and respect the importance of making one-on-one meetings as scheduled.   

“One of the fundamental differentiators of our events is our ability to deliver predictable results in the form of scheduled engagements with our VIP guests,” said AE Ventures president John Galante. “Now we stand behind that benefit with a clear and valuable guarantee that will reassure our sponsors and drive even higher levels of quality from our team in delivering engagements with VIPs.”
