Global Events and Dignitary Visits
Planning a major event, or hosting an important visitor or delegation, can be complicated, expensive, and daunting to those who do not confront this kind of challenge regularly. Sonia Garza-Monarchi has the knowledge, contacts, and experience to help you and your team with all the details so that you can focus on doing business.
Global Events Management Don’t let inexperience and overlooked details derail your event. Garza Protocol Associates has years of experience organizing trade missions, signing ceremonies, business luncheons, gala dinners, bilateral meetings and conferences both in the U.S. and abroad. From the order of introductions to the order of your program, seating charts to security, menus to entertainment, flags, and flowers, each presents a potential protocol pitfall. Sonia Garza-Monarchi works with you to coordinate a successful event. She can help anticipate and address problem areas, prepare detailed checklists, minute by minute timelines, briefing documents and back-up plans to ensure that your goals are met.
Hosting Distinguished Visitors You can’t afford mistakes when welcoming an important client or a senior government official. Garza Protocol Associates has extensive experience planning and executing dignitary visits at all levels, from international business leaders and delegates on trade missions, to heads of state and royalty.
Visits go wrong when details—big and small—are not addressed properly. Our success is built on two key elements: our commitment to open communication and coordination when working with your team, local authorities, the U.S. Secret Service, the Department of State, the visitor’s staff and other key stakeholders, and an understanding of the importance that protocol and culture play on every aspect of the itinerary and logistical plans from transportation and motorcades, hotels to hospitality, gifts and more. We ensure that every component of your guest’s visit is prepared with these considerations to avoid blunders that can have a negative impact. We take care of the details so you can focus on the substance of your meetings.
