One of Groups360’s core values is transparency. We believe bringing transparency about hotel group sales to event planners helps them make better decisions. As a result, meeting planners save money and hotels receive the best customers for their properties. Oftentimes in doing this, we create aha moments for our customers. These moments are incredibly gratifying.
One such corporate event planner had been doing business with only a couple of hotels in the past, relying on their ongoing relationship. One of her preferred hotels raised prices after a newly completed renovation, which put the property outside of her budget. She was at a loss for what to do next.
Fortunately, there’s GroupSync.
In a matter of minutes — without even having to contact another hotel — we were able to show the event planner customer options of similar sized hotels in other markets that fit her budget.
“I didn’t even know these hotels existed or that this new market was so much less expensive this time of year,” she said. “This is incredible!”
We saved this meeting planner weeks of work finding a new hotel for her event and saved her a fortune in the process.
I love these aha moments.
