Accor launches meeting planner tool
Dubai, November 20, 2013
Leading hospitality company Accor has launched its Meeting Hotel Finder to enable meeting planners to search for an ideal venue for meetings and events facilities.
The search is available according to the various criteria including geography (continent, country, city, airport hotels); type of meeting (attendance, room layout, number of meeting rooms needed, incentive activities requested); accommodation (number of rooms needed) and hotel category (luxury, upscale, midscale, economy).
With nearly 1,000 different destinations, this tool cumulates more than 10,000 meetings rooms in 90 different countries (65 per cent in Europe and 23 per cent in Asia – Pacific), said a statement.
Accor’s top five cities, in terms of hotels with meeting space are Paris (79 hotels), Sao Paolo (28 hotels), Lyon (27 hotels), London (25 hotels) and Sydney (22 hotels), it said.
“With 2,000 meetings venues, on all segments from luxury to economy, we have designed a user-friendly tool to easily find the perfect hotel for small meetings or incentives to large conventions” said Ludovic Dupont, Accor’s VP Travel Agencies - Meetings and Events.
This new tool is available on the Accor meeting portal, where it offers a whole range of online solutions to organize tailor-made business events in its hotels.
Once the choice has been narrowed, meeting planners can directly book their event online or ask for quotation of one or several hotels. The portal offers the possibility to compare up to three hotels according to their price, F&B, services and leisure facilities, said the statement. - TradeArabia News Service
