News for the Hospitality Executive
We wanted to send a note and introduce Cvent, the world’s largest meetings management technology company. As 2012 rapidly approaches, it is time for hoteliers to set marketing budgets and sales goals. We have created a white paper with 10 best practices to help you capture more group business from meeting planners and thanks to Cvent’s recent investment of $136 million, we are focused on building the Cvent Supplier Network to be your largest and most qualified source of group business. In 2011, our planners will source almost $4 Billion of meeting business through the Cvent Supplier Network. In 2012, we forecast that our planners will send over $5 Billion through our system.
We would like to discuss how Cvent can help you capture more group business by marketing your property in innovative ways. Please contact George Shagoury at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also learn more about the Cvent Supplier Network at one of our webinars.
We look forward to talking with you about how Cvent can help you win more group business in 2012.
