Clearly no company has transferred or cancelled their places. The pitch is silly, you know it I know it. Most C Level execs expect this type of a "pitch" so no major concerns here other than the charade is awkward.
Of course, there is no urgency so take your time, 9 times out of 10 you will find a better deal with a more reputable company and one that hopefully treats its people better.
Ahh THE BEST is if you fall for the hard urgency, we get an email applauding what a big sucker you are and label it "PLAY OF THE DAY" It's supposed to especially motivate us when you are somewhere like a funeral, or doctors appointment, etc and we got you to sign for tickets to whatever event! And since we rushed you ... guess you didn't take a look at the contract.
Hopefully you noticed there are NO REFUNDS.
Complain about the bad event? See the above.
This is strictly a transactional sale, we do not care about a relationship with your company.
References used on the website are fake. Notice they are missing DM's names?
Facts are our markups are proudly at 55% and up depending on event. The quality varies depending on the event, I've heard horror stories from all. Read between the lines - offsite? tickets guaranteed LL? where lower level? GET IT ON THE CONTRACT.
The celebrities used are hardly celebrities. Without disrespecting some of the very very older players, the names are never recognizable to your clients.
What is in black and white on the contract is all you will get. The pretty pics on the proposal? The promises from your rep... none of it matters. Your sales person will be gone as soon as they can find anywhere to go. They probably hated selling you, but needed to survive and $1500 a month just doesn't allow for honesty.
IF YOU HAVE SIGNED AND HAVE NOT PAID:
They will threaten legal. But they will not pursue. I know of multiple cases where DM's found out about the scam and did not go through with payment. THG does not have a leg to stand on.
To summarize - THG does not care about your business. You are a dime a dozen CEO and there are plenty more to burn through, just like employees.

Ask to be assigned to the DNC list. You will need to specify all locations otherwise you will still be called.
