We pride ourselves on a transparent pricing model that allows for à la carte services and budget flexibility throughout the event planning and implementation process. We start by learning about the event and budget desires and design a production plan that achieves the event goals within cost constraints.
As pre-production progresses, we flag if decisions or changes to the event will have any cost implications, and give options for additional services or reductions as needed. After the event concludes, we send an invoice for the actual cost of our services based on our time spent throughout the process. If we use less time and resources than anticipated, the cost will go down, and if there are many changes and add ons, the cost may go up.
When working with us you pay for the time that is needed to accomplish the goal – and not a penny more.
We utilize the Discovery Phase as a way to understand how we can best develop and deliver the project scope without over-staffing.
Due to Covid-19, Architex is offering customers the option to hire us for the Discovery phase independently of a full event contract.
The discovery phase consists of the first steps of work required pre-event regardless; and, when utilized independently, will produce a much more accurate estimate and execution plan for the rest of the event's production timeline.
If the independent Discovery Phase option is utilized, it will be structured as a flat fee. If you decide to continue working with us past the Discovery Phase and move into Pre-Production and Implementation, the relationship will shift into a pay-as-needed relationship. The hours spent in Discovery will roll into the rest of the contract, and after the event ends, all hours spent will be billed, adjusted either up or down.
While crafting the vision for your event, we work with you to find the right balance between efficiency and production value, and below you’ll find the building blocks behind our process to bring transparency to our pricing. Final invoices will always be modified to reflect actual hours worked.
There are many cases where roles are combined, so a single person can operate as two or more roles. Sometimes the opposite is true where roles need to be split amongst multiple people. For example, on a complex show you may need two graphics operators, one dedicated to titles and one managing slide decks. Regardless, this definition and assignment of responsibilities allows us to systematize our work, bringing you the best possible product while approaching each project with an attempt to be as efficient as possible.
