Corporate Meetings at Sea
We are travel agent & cruise specialists looking to make corporate business meetings and conferences more exciting & productive while cutting the cost. We are small and professional group with a lot of experience an knowledge that we pass down to our clients. We work one-on-one so each client is treated with care and each meeting or conference is customized to the clients needs.
Current Site: http://corporatemeetingsatsea.com/index.html
Currently we target small/medium sized business with 100 employees or less. We are looking to target larger businesses with 500+ employees. Our client base is corporate businesses that plan business meetings, conferences, training and company retreats. Most of the time this is done at hotels so we are looking to transition them to cruise ships.
Want to present 3 main ideas why cruises vs. hotel. 1. On a cruise it is a contained environment so your forced to interact more. 2. makes the meeting and idea of the meeting more exciting by visiting different locations. 3. it can cost up to 30% less to host a meeting on a cruise ship than a hotel. So getting clients to call, to be able to explain that is our number one priority.
Looking for a professional design that is clean and to the point but with interesting lines and placement. Main call to action is to have the client call. We do not allow them to purchase cruises online and want to explain 3 key points above over phone.
