Andavo Meetings & Incentives

People don’t buy what you do; they buy why you do it. At Andavo, we create strategically orchestrated, one-of-a-kind events for groups from 50 to 5,000, designed to foster community loyalty and a sense of unity We cover the “what” – all those painstaking logistics — exceedingly well, but more important, we explore the “why” behind your event. We’ll ask about your goals and then weave them through every aspect. We don’t offer a “menu of choices;” we personalize and customize the event to achieve your vision.

The ability to formulate solutions under pressure is how we innovate. What would you do if the unimaginable happened at your event: an active shooter, a protest, food poisoning?

Andavo offers a unique consulting service, independent of our meeting and event planning expertise: How to address risk management: protect people, save money, preserve your reputation. You can’t predict. You can’t always prevent. But you can – and must – be prepared, and we can help.
