BDS specializes in total meeting and event planning services, including not-for-profit fundraisers. Quality time is spent with you to understand the mission, specific needs and overall image that must be projected. We give special attention to your budget requirements, fundraising goals, and needs of your organization.
Extensive Scope of Services
Conceptualization: At BDS, our first component of ensuring a first class event is going over the details of the project with you and understanding the goals, objectives and budget considerations. Our team works with you and your team to develop a strategic plan to maximize the objective attainment and overall convenience to attendees. Our comprehensive plan includes:
- Identify goals and objectives of project
- Create timeline
- Identify target market
- Create budget
- Final Reporting
Management: BDS can assist with your project from start to finish, ensuring every detail is covered. All logistical and operational facets of your event can be managed with you or for you. BDS is available to oversee the work of staff, volunteers, and even other vendors.
Post Project/Follow-up: At BDS, quality service and relationships are everything. Delivering the highest quality service is a must, and receiving personal feedback is how we maintain trust and credibility. After each event or project, we provide a complete summary report including thank you notes and a final budget report.
