Welcome to the RCMA Tool Kit
The RCMA Tool Kit was developed by the Executive Supplier Council as a user friendly and adaptable resource for any planner to obtain information for a conference, leading to great results. Below are descrptions of the documents provided along with the contact information of Council Member that created them. To the right are buttons where you can download the documents.
We will continue to add more information to the Tool Kit, but if you feel there is something specific that should be added now please contact Ted Miller (Ted.Miller@hilton.com) or any member of the council. We welcome your suggestions and comments.
Request for Proposal (RFP) Forms
The RFP blank forms show the information that you should supply when seeking a proposal from a specific hotel, city or cities. The more information you provide especially on your past history and items purchased such as food and beverage will help the supplier to give you their best offer. Remember that a hotel or any other supplier has limits on the pricing they can provide. Examples of completed forms are included for large, medium and smaller events as a guide. If you have further questions please contact Sandra Schutrop who developed the forms.

Economic Evaluation by Location
The Economic Evaluation by Location Section gives you a tool to determine what room pricing is considered normal. Some locations show seasonal pricing which is based on current business trends. The pricing is a tool to see if a city is financially feasible for your event. Depending on the business demand over specific dates you may find pricing higher or lower. If you have further questions on how to use this section please contact Ted Miller who developed it.
