to Schron Associates!
in 1982 and based in New York City, Schron Associates is a professional
business services company specializing in meeting
& event planning and group incentive
travel. Globally, what we do is often called "MICE"
(Meetings, Incentives, Conventions & Exhibitions) or "business
tourism," which includes MICE as well as corporate
educational travel, business study seminars, etc. We particularly
specialize in management retreats, employee and client appreciation
trips, business study tours and other such events of under 100 guests
that require high quality venues and customized services as well as a
high touch, personal approach.
As a family business with decades of experience, we do things the old
fashioned way: with attention to detail and a personal touch. Unlike our
big, brand-driven competitors that take on hundreds of clients at a time,
we serve a smaller, more select client base. We accept only a limited
number of assignments each year from clients who appreciate attention
to detail, personal service and our no-nonsense, results-oriented
attitude. We offer customized solutions based on unbiased advice
and a focus on serving one client at a time.
Schron Associates is committed to delivering quality events at a reasonable
cost that achieve your strategic objectives. Whether you're a small
organization that requires general event planning expertise or
a global corporation that needs some knowledgeable specialized assistance,
we can be of service.
We like to think that our background
in marketing, finance, and public relations - not just sales or the
travel and events business - helps us understand your goals and how
business events can be used to achieve them.
offer a comprehensive service for meetings,
events and incentives, from designing incentive criteria and meeting agendas
to negotiating with vendors and overseeing program
execution and follow-up. Additionally, we have many years of experience
in organizing cruises for meetings, incentives
and affinity groups, offer destination management services here in
New York City, and have developed expertise in
planning and escorting corporate group travel to explore new markets
or to study factories or other facilities. We
promise that, from start to finish, your program is handled personally
by a member of our management team who is both accessible and accountable
to you. We work with you to develop customized solutions that meet
your need for results and return on investment.
know we're good at what we do, but you don't have to take our word for
it. As a small business, we have no big marketing budget and we rely on
word of mouth, so check out our mailbag to see
what clients and their guests have to say about us, from as near as the
heartland of America and as far away as the South Pacific. Our services
aren't for everyone, but if you appreciate integrity, unbiased advice,
attention to detail, and responsive service, they might be for you.
Please contact us if you have any questions,
or if you would like us to make a proposal
for your next meeting, event or incentive trip.
