Out of the box thinking and business creativity is what sets us a part from the rest.

Our Story

As a hospitality professional for several years working in every sector there is inevitably a disconnect between the planning process and understanding the business. Events and meetings run a large expense line to the business overall P&L. While not all planners are a part of this internal process within their company, M6 strives to ensure we track and manage the meeting cost and help align those with the KPI's of the business. Understanding how to creativly negotiate terms and manage cost are key to business owners. Sometimes the smallest adjustment can make the largest impact. We try to find those adjustments and maximize our output for our clients events and meetings.
