About Us

Although the CAT name may be new to you, its development emerged from the collective experience working with associations, trade show operators and other convention sponsors for nearly thirty years. The CAT mission is straightforward –

To provide the opportunity for organizations to once again obtain material revenue from the airline travel of individuals attending meetings they sponsor.

With that mission in mind, we identified what was needed –

  • Consumer recognized booking sources without a ticketing fee
  • Selection from that group to negotiate a commission structure that would provide payment for directing large numbers of convention attendees for booking
  • Selection from that group to negotiate a commission structure that would provide payment for directing large numbers of convention attendees for booking
  • Development of a complex system capable of capturing data from an infinite number of individual bookings completed with any of several different participating booking sites……….then –
    • Reconcile commission to the contractual structure of each participating supplier
    • Categorize each booking to the originating convention
    • Blind all travelers’ names via replacement with a correlational numeric code to protect confidentiality but also allow for fiduciary documentation
    • Allocate applicable commission break-out to each convention sponsor and transmit it to the finance management system
    • Consolidate booking data from all participating suppliers to determine amount received by each client meeting sponsor
    • Generate client reporting to support the funds paid to the convention sponsor
    • Operate lottery style electronic drawing method to support ticketing incentives for attendees by convention group

After two years, 3213 cups of coffee, 1016 energy drinks, 912 pizzas, multiple significant others, a spousal change and one new baby (the coolest part) – OUR TEAM MADE IT HAPPEN & CAT WAS READY FOR LAUNCH!

We’d love the opportunity to further the work of your organization with a new source of funds via CAT. You’ll see the same dedication that brought our company to life devoted to that relationship.
