Client Solution Case Studies

 

SPONSORSHIP SOLUTIONS

ICCA and strategic sponsor partner, BestCities Global Alliance engaged Meeting Escrow as the designated escrow partner for the Incredible Impacts Awards Programme.

ADVANCE DEPOSIT ESCROW PROTECTION

Our client experienced first-hand the risks involved with paying advance deposits when their supplier in a resort location closed its doors just days before their corporate event was to start.

FOREIGN CURRENCY BUDGET PROTECTION

Exchange rates vary constantly, especially in today’s volatile political and economic climate, and if an organization’s home currency is lower than the destination currency on the day a deposit is due to be paid, the results can be costly.
