what we do

Do you envision a dynamic conference of 250 people in Chiang Mai, Thailand where your guests can trek the forest on elephants? Perhaps you prefer an intimate gathering for 75 in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, where the calming waters and forests will inspire creativity in attendees.

Cristoff & Associates works on your behalf, at no fee to you, to research, select and contract the perfect hotel for your meeting. Unlike many site selection companies, or those who contract exclusively with certain hotels or hotel chains, we work as an extension of your team. We maximize your efficiency and reduce your cost by:

  • Listening to your specific needs in terms of meeting objectives, location, group size and dynamic, and budget;
  • Crafting a Request for Proposal that will highlight your meeting’s best features and motivate properties to compete for your business, ensuring that you get the best rates;
  • Negotiating even the most delicate and time-consuming contracts at no fee to you;
  • Protecting you from hidden fees, add-ons, mark-ups, or hassles;
  • Making the most informed and efficient recommendations by keeping abreast of business, economic, and hotel-industry trends;
  • Being paid a placement fee by the hotel you choose, so that our services cost you nothing;
  • Maintaining no affiliation with specific hotels or chains of properties, so that our relationship with you is unbiased.
