With the redesign of Choicehotels.com, Choice Hotels International (NYSE:CHH), introduces an electronic request for proposal (RFP) designed to streamline the planning and booking process for travel coordinators, conference organizers, meeting planners or individuals organizing a meeting or group event.
“Despite today`s teleconferencing technologies, Choice Hotels recognizes that people still want to meet face-to-face and meeting planners play a significant role in the process,” said Wayne Wielgus, Choice Hotels` sr. vice president of marketing. ” The development of Choice Hotels` electronic RFP gives planners a one-stop-shop at which to book their small to midsize meetings.”
The electronic RFP offers planners an opportunity to choose from any one of Choice Hotels` Comfort Inn, Comfort Suites, Quality, Sleep Inn, Clarion, MainStay Suites, Econo Lodge or Rodeway Inn brand hotels around the world. This one-stop-shop provides significant savings to the planners as individual rates are negotiated for each request.
To complete the electronic RFP visit www.choicehotels.com, select Groups & Meetings, and submit the meeting room requirements information - date, time, function name, number of people, function set-up, room size and audio-visual requirements. A summary of the RFP will be provided for review prior to the final submission.
A Choice Hotels meeting services professional will respond within 24 hours to each electronic request and will prepare a written proposal defining the meeting requirements at no charge. A final contract will be sent directly from the hotel.
Choice Hotels` meeting services group may also be reached directly at (800) 426-2121.
