Planning a meeting – no matter how big or small – is never easy. But when you have a team on your side, ready to help you find the best venues and services, optimizing value and maximizing efficiency, it becomes infinitely more manageable. Working with our Global Sales directors, planners get a single point of contact to accelerate the planning process and book venues easily.
Each Global Sales director takes the time to understand the full scope and objective of your unique situation before presenting a selection of meeting experiences. By leveraging the resources of the entire Destination Hotels collection and having intimate knowledge of the strengths of each property, directors and planners can focus on the most important measure of a meeting’s success – its content and results. Additionally, directors provide timely updates concerning new properties joining the portfolio, recent property enhancements, special promotions, and current offers and value dates.
