"Meetingmax's system has an excellent reputation within the travel industry," says Shauna Lunde, director of sales and marketing for the Tacoma Regional CVB. "Meeting planners have had positive experiences with the system in other destinations and have been requesting the service from us." ÃÃ
With 87 hotels and 6,000 hotel rooms, the Tacoma Regional CVB was looking for a system that could simplify the process of reserving room blocks at a variety of hotels. Instead of having to use each hotel's system to track bookings, a meeting planner can secure blocks of housing through the CVB and manage their bookings through one central portal. Conference attendees are sent a link which allows them to explore participating hotels and book their own rooms. Ã
Meetingmax's system was selected based on its user-friendly interface and the fact that it does not have minimum booking requirements. The system has received positive feedback from other Washington destinations and is now used by CVBs in Spokane, Tri-Cities, and Yakima.
