We’re thrilled to share with you that meeting and event planners can now instantly book group rooms at over 6,500 participating hotel locations worldwide, with approximately 1,020,800 available rooms from brands including Hilton, IHG, and Omni. With a broader selection of properties available, GroupSync Marketplace is becoming the premier location for coordinators and planners to search, shop and book their rooms and meeting space – all from a single online solution.
GroupSync Marketplace is Groups360’s solution for booking meetings and events by providing instant online booking for group rooms and space, a simplified RFP process providing instant access to nearly 200,000 hotels, and housing solutions. GroupSync is the only place where event planners can evaluate real-time inventory availability for guest rooms and event space prior to booking room blocks online or sending an RFP.
“We are reshaping the hospitality industry with GroupSync Marketplace in a way that makes booking groups simple, transparent and efficient for both hotels and event planners,” said Kemp Gallineau, CEO, Groups360. “Planners and hoteliers alike see the value that pricing, inventory availability, and instant booking brings to the booking process. Given our rapid adoption, we now offer group planners availability and instant booking opportunities for over a million rooms on GroupSync.”
Compared to legacy sourcing systems and methods, planners now have easy access to hotel information enabling them to send more relevant RFPs to criteria-matching venues. With GroupSync, users have a higher acceptance rate and overall, a better booking experience.
Over the next few months, we expect to have approximately 45,000 of the nearly 200,000 RFP-connected properties in GroupSync equipped to be equipped to offer instant online group booking.
