Union Labor & Vendor Management

Global Vendor & Event Staff Management

Every vendor involved with your event is part of the team that will make or break the massive marketing vehicle you’ve worked so hard to plan. In more than a decade of managing dozens of vendors simultaneously, Vision has developed the systems and tools to ensure that vendors, venue personnel and contract labor across all areas of an event will be on the same page at all times. Whether we’ve partnered with a vendor a hundred times or we’re meeting them for the first time onsite, the message we convey to everyone we work with is that we’re a team pulling toward your event’s success. In all situations, we emphasize to vendors, hotel staff and our own staff that customer service is paramount. Prior to the event, we sync our plans, schedules and budgets with any involved vendors to ensure a seamless experience onsite.

In a major corporate event with countless moving pieces, unexpected inconveniences are going to happen. Dealing with those setbacks with a proactive attitude can offset the impact of almost anything that could go wrong. Our promise is that under Vision’s guidance, the customer service, budgetary implications and timely fulfillment of all vendor services on your event will be the best in the industry, and that your entire team will be a winner.

Budget-Conscious Staffing

Much like credit card companies, unions aren’t necessarily designed to be understood from the outside. Each city has different regulations, each union has different pricing, and your budget depends on understanding what it all means.

We know our way around the back hallways of a hotel and around the trap doors of union pricing, so you’ll never have to worry about triple secret overtime blowing a hole in your budget.

Fortunately, Vision has hired projectionists in Chicago, dockhands in Detroit, security in San Francisco and boom operators in the Bronx. We know our way around the back hallways of a hotel and around the trap doors of union pricing, so you’ll never have to worry about triple secret overtime blowing a hole in your budget.

As soon as the production budget is established, Vision will create a staffing plan to govern all union and non-union labor costs across your entire event. We manage all vendor schedules, pricing, overtime requirements, expenses, meals, per diem and transportation costs so you can focus on the important stuff. And most importantly, we strive to make every vendor and staff person on your event feel like part of a larger team—yours.

Don’t let the complexity of union requirements or dealing with a multitude of vendors elevate your blood pressure. Vision will tackle the tough stuff and keep vendor woes at bay.
