APC’s human and capital investments in events has a tremendous affect on the organization and maximizing the value of these investments is good business. Events should be measured based on their ability to maximize and generate revenues, increase sales, increase markets, introduce new products (attractions, amenities, experiences), enhance customer experience, increase customer loyalty, increase memberships, donations, and maximize return on investment. Events can provide substantial returns on investment and increase the bottom line. SEII was contracted to strategically analyze events from the past, present and within APC and provide professional and objective opinions and recommendations for the future. Events need to be linked to the overall strategic vision of an organization and achieve the outcomes as defined by the APC leadership team.
"In 2019 SEII partnered with the Town of Addison to research and develop a 5 year Special Events Strategic Plan for our tourism departments. Wanda’s excitement regarding the project was infectious, and hard work, responsiveness and quality output from her staff made SEII a pleasure to work with. Despite being in different countries, Wanda was always accessible and her utilization of technology to share documents, research and other information made for a seamless interaction between her team and ours. We are quite happy with the final product and have already begun to institute aspects in the first few months of implementation. Wanda continues to be available to us, and we look forward to the opportunity to work with SEII again in the future."
