Starwood launches meeting planner portal
Washington, March 20, 2012
Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide has launched a new simple, engaging and intuitive website for meeting planners and delivers relevant and comprehensive content for all phases of the meeting planning process.
The new Starwoodmeetings.com is the result of an extensive research effort that included looking at today’s best practices and interviewing customers to determine how best to bridge Starwood’s online resources with the on-site services provided by properties, a statement said.
StarwoodMeetings.com enables one to research meetings at more than 1,000 Starwood properties worldwide and provides rich property content and key information on Starwood’s brands and growing global footprint.
Meeting planners now have full property details complete with hotel features, integrated maps with points of interest, photos and floor plans, on-site meeting services, a Compare View tool to compare hotels, special offers, and meeting management tools on an easy to navigate site.
The new site also includes information on signature services including Starwood Preferred Planner, Starwood Convention Collection, On-Site Specialty Events, and Starwood’s sustainability and social responsibility initiatives.
“StarwoodMeetings.com was designed to increase the ease of doing business with Starwood,” said Christie Hicks, senior vice president, Starwood Sales Organization.
“We listened to feedback from our customers and developed a tool which gives them easy access to information they need throughout the planning cycle. We look forward to hearing our customer’s feedback as we continue to evolve the site to meet the needs of meeting planners around the world.” – TradeArabia News Service
