- We uniquely have priority access to heavily discounted Government rates as well as tactical and promotional rates/packages
- Calder’s have pre-negotiated flexible and more favourable cancellation terms with 98% of the 1000’s of venues we use, saving you money, eliminating the need to fulfil pre-payments and deposits and of course optimising your time by allaying the necessity to study/scrutinise individual Venues’ own lengthy terms and conditions.

- Calder achieves 97.5% policy compliance for our customer, via evidenced cost efficiencies and consolidated billing modules.
