Cost savings! Working with a coordinator can save you money $$


  • On average our clients save $500 through our vendor referrals.  For example…use one of our DJs we suggest and they will toss in a $100-$250 discount.
  • Not utilizing a coordinator can result in additional time needed for set up and break down. This averages $700 in overtime charges
  • A coordinator can look at your contracts and proposals and make suggestions on what you do not need. These savings average $450.


Total average savings: $1650
