Come experience how hotel’s review your group RFPs!

Hotel Irvine

As we focus on our theme for the year, “Back to the Basics”, it’s important to me that we deliver applicable education. This event is geared towards understanding one piece to Incentive Travel: Hotel Group Revenue. This panel exercise will help planners understand the “how” and the “why” behind RFP responses from the hotels you have sourced. Whether you’re a veteran in the industry or brand new, this exercise will keep you informed on current hotel revenue strategy, which in turn will help planners successfully place their group business. It also allows for planners to interact with Hotel Revenue…a rarity! I hope to see many of our industry’s planners and partners for this event attending with questions for the Hotel Revenue professionals. Please read below for the event description and our panelists.

I look forward to connecting with our members and extended community in May!

Best,
Brian Griffith
SITE SoCal President

In today’s world, more than 80% of business relationships are formed in social settings. In today's competitive and global job market, technical knowledge is just not enough. Becoming social-savvy will facilitate your interaction with others and make you realize your advantageous position rather than worry about committing a faux pas. Even more important is understanding international dining etiquette. Our behavior at a dining table plays a vital role on how our business connections will perceive us. Becoming glass, china and silverware savvy allows you to concentrate on developing contacts without worrying about whether or not you are using the right utensil!
