In 2014 the hotel industry set record a breaking number of guest rooms sold and new hotel supply will not outpace demand in the foreseeable future. Planners looking to obtain competitive responses to their RFP need to begin with comprehensive knowledge of their options and well-constructed RFP, specific to the demand factors in the destinations under consideration.
Who couldn’t use an advocate or strategic planning partner in the destination to help take the guess work out of the search and provide support in taking advantage of opportunities and avoiding common pitfalls?
While there are a plethora of resources available to planners supporting the skills and resources necessary to execute a successful meeting, few of them combine destination knowledge, local expertise, and connections to leverage in-market relationships.
And none of them, other than the services of your destination experts of the official marketing arm of their destinations (CVBs) are FREE to you! Free because their services are funded by tax assessments and those vested in growing tourism in the destination.
Our aim is to give you key insights to leverage your CVB partners for maximum benefit and help you understand the services they provide to assist you in the search and planning process.
In this webinar you will learn:
- How CVBs can help you FIND what you are looking for and make your RFP destination specific when sourcing your meeting or event to meet the objectives of your stakeholders and your budget parameters
