Meet the Team
What is a DMC
A professional services company possessing extensive local knowledge, expertise and resources, specializing in the design and implementation of events, activities, tours, transportation and program logistics.
Park City, Utah
Just a short transfer from Salt Lake Airport, Park City UT awaits, with three year-round resorts and a mountain town offering exceptional dining, unlimited recreation and award winning accommodations. With nearly 400 trails, it’s difficult to imagine there’s more here than just world class skiing. In fact, Outside Magazine named Park City, UT the “Best Town Ever”. You may want to consider a 1 way ticket.
Salt Lake City
Crossroads to the west, Salt Lake City offers guests a fresh take on Rocky Mountain living. Just minutes from the airport, Salt Lake City surprises guests with upscale shopping, nightlife, historic attractions, galleries and museums all closer than you could imagine. You’ll quickly get a sense of how this Old West town has become a forward-thinking, and burgeoning urban hub. Salt Lake will surprise you with the amount of things to do, places to see, and ways to connect.
Moab, St. George, Springville, Cedar City….It seems like the sun is always shining in Southern Utah. Tucked away in its own corner of the US, Southern Utah is home to the Mighty 5 ™ National Parks. This landscape captures the imagination and the spirit of the west. Iconic arches, towering monuments, historic rivers and amazing vistas will become the backdrop to memories that will last a lifetime.
Jackson Hole, Wyoming
Jackson Hole is where pioneers sought new adventures. Today’s travelers can explore on skis, mountain bikes, rafts, horse-drawn stagecoaches, and more! From lodging and transportation to scenic excursions in search of wildlife like moose and grizzly bears, Jackson Hole has it all and Summit Events can organize it all for you.
Are There Any Hidden Fees?
No. Before you sign a contract or send a deposit to us, we present you with a line item budget inclusive of all the services you’ve requested. Within the line item budget we account for local taxes, services fees, surcharges, and estimated “on consumption” items.
Of course, in the planning process, the budget can and often does change. We will notify you of these changes and adjust accordingly. We pride ourselves on the accuracy of our line item budgets…because we know that no one likes surprises.
What Is Your Process?
First, we want to get to know you and your group’s unique needs. This is done during an intake session over the phone or in person during a site inspection. Once we understand your group needs, we look for unique and creative ways to fulfill those needs via a proposal and line item costing. If you decide that we’re the right fit for your group, we ask for a contract and deposit. At this time, your program moves into the “program planning” phase of the process. Here, you work closely with one of our talented Program Managers to fine-tune your program, working with you during the operation and finally reconciling a final bill once your program is complete. Our goal is a totally satisfied client that wants to come back and tell all their friends.
What If My Program Cancels?
If your program cancels, we will be happy to refund your money less any non-refundable deposits. When applicable, a modest fee may be requested for our time and company resources spent on your behalf.
Am I Protected When Using Summit Events
Yes. On top of the insurance carried by Summit Events, we work with only the best vendors and insure that they carry all the appropriate license, insurance, and personnel needed.
Are You A Concierge?
Not really. Typically a hotel concierge specializes in making recommendations and reservations for individual travelers and families…and it ends there. We partner with groups on pre-planning, event production, event execution, and program reconciliations.
Can I Call Local Vendors Directly?
Yes, absolutely. We only ask that you let us know if you intend to contact local vendors yourself so that we may proceed with your proposal, costing, or program operation accordingly.
How Does Summit Events Make Money?
Summit Events charges a fee for our services. We’ve invested years getting to know our destinations, nurturing our relationships with local vendors, and figuring out what works best. We think this knowledge and our local know-how is worth a fee. This fee can be represented in the form of a “Service Fee”, or a “Management Fee” based on the time invested in your program or scope of our services.
Why Should I Work With A DMC?
Summit Events connects YOU, your goals, and attendees with the vendors local to your destination. You benefit from our knowledge of local products, service quality, and reliability. Our team will negotiate contracts on your behalf, always keeping your best interest and budget in mind. Summit Events can leverage its relationships and purchasing power to provide the highest quality of service in a cost-effective manner.
In order for us to answer your question more thoroughly please provide us with as much information as possible. For Example: group name, destination, program dates or season and year, estimated group size, and host hotel.
