Worldhotels has launched a new tool for MICE professionals, ‘Meetings at Worldhotels’. The new online portal, www.worldhotels.com/event-planner.html, aims to help MICE professionals in planning events, and features an online search tool, which allows event planners to search for meeting venues amongst the 450 Worldhotels properties worldwide. Meetings at Worldhotels will also allow planners to filter for additional requirements such as delegate numbers, accommodation, hotel facilities and location, as well as letting users browse the Worldhotels portfolio for a specific type of event from one of four categories: Team Building, Social Gatherings, Board Meetings and Seminars, and Conferences and Conventions. A directory will then list eligible hotels by region and country.
The tool also offers an online RFP form (request for proposal), in which planners can fill out all event requirements. Within 24 hours they will receive a range of venue proposals, all with guaranteed rates on rooms, meeting space and banqueting. In addition, MICE agents can also call one of three multilingual group desks, located in Frankfurt, New York and Singapore, for further advice and information.
“Meeting professionals today are dealing with an ever growing number of client enquiries which are highly demanding and increasingly complex,” said Robert Hornman, Managing Director of Worldhotels. “With Meetings at Worldhotels we are giving MICE agents easy access to an extensive range of event venues around the world – from five star city hotels with ample conference facilities, to intimate boutique hotels with romantic ballrooms. At the same time, we are guaranteeing fast and comprehensive hotel information as well as expert support to ensure a successful event.”
