This partnership means that the planner’s RFP will be shared directly with the conference team at the specified Accor property.
Dana Lewis, VP M&E, Luxury M&E & Leisure, Northern Europe at Accor, commented: “This has been a tough year for us all in the industry and we are delighted to work with venuedirectory.com through this time to deliver this significant technology enhancement.”
Katja Reisch, director of MICE & Leisure Distribution Northern Europe at Accor, added: “This was a really important project for Accor and we are delighted that our team have worked throughout with venuedirectory.com to get this deployed. The next stage is to roll this out across the rest of Europe and then the international hotels, smart connections across the meetings distribution network is a key part of our future recovery and global efficiencies.”
Michael Begley (pictured), CEO of venuedirectory.com, said: “This speeds up the response process for hotels which ultimately brings huge time-saving benefits for meeting and event planners. Our partnership with Accor delivers efficiencies all round and, as more and more hotels and venues are directly integrated with our systems, the integration will facilitate bookings and support the recovery of our industry.”
