Booking a hotel for an event can be almost more stressful than the competition itself. Will your teams need connecting rooms? Do they need breakfast included? Do your teams need to be on the same floor or even in the same hotel? These are all valid considerations when selecting which hotels to offer your teams that can help make your event amazing.
Our room blocking system is a convenient way for you to provide the right accommodations solution at the right time, maximizing the room nights sold in advance of your event starting. We want to help you ensure your teams get a premium choice of rooms at the lowest available price with no hassle. Choosing where to stay is all part of your teams amazing experience at your event.
As your teams are browsing on our hotel feed they’ll have the power to hold up to 100 rooms at a given property. The ease of holding a block of rooms at a hotel encourages a team manager to select where his team will stay without having to pay for all the rooms up front. After the room block is created, all the team manager needs to do is share a link to the room block with the team and just like magic, they can reserve their rooms – never having to even pick up the phone.
In the dashboard you can easily view; the dates for blocked rooms, the team and its manager, the hotel and room details, and also the team size and total reservations on the block of rooms. This allows for complete transparency between you and your teams so you know exactly who’s ready to go and who still needs to be reminded to book their rooms.
If you want to have even more control of the experience, you have the ability to delegate room blocks to your teams so they are right where they’re supposed to be.
