Resource eliminates headaches/delays

Acendas has expanded its menu of resources available to companies and meeting planners with the addition of a self-service, online hotel sourcing tool.

By partnering with industry-leading meeting solutions provider Groupize, Acendas is offering this easy to use technology allowing one to access inventories for meeting space and housing to not only secure rates, but also reserve the appropriate room inventory. The tool’s best use application is for “simple” meetings – those not needing amenities or accommodations beyond the standard meeting rooms, food and beverage service, audio visual and housing. A meeting featuring a large number of attendees might still be considered simple.

“This allows those company administrators and event planning staff to execute their work in a more efficient and timely manner,” says Acendas Travel Director of Meetings and Incentives Stephanie Clifton.

In addition to the planning aspects of the resource, it also offers a registration module once the rooms are booked, and it provides an online app for the event to share information with attendees.

“This addresses an aspect of meeting planning that has long frustrated professionals — the lack of timely information and unwieldy processes,” Clifton says. “We are pleased to offer it to clients and excited for what it will deliver to them.”
