The new Meetings, Incentive and Corporate Travel Collection 2012 will be officially launched at next week’s Exhibition for the Incentive Business Travel and Meetings (EIBTM) in Barcelona, Spain, where Great Hotels of the World will be exhibiting on stand E320. The 2012 edition includes over 130 of the world’s best MICE and corporate properties, all offering exceptional facilities and services for groups and corporate travellers.
The directory will also be distributed to meeting planners and corporate travel buyers and will be available at trade events, including Meeting Forums (http://www.ghorg.com/forum/) and Road Shows (http://www.ghotw.com/venuefinder/road-shows.aspx).
Meeting and Incentive entries to the directory showcase what each property has to offer, including their location, room facilities, hotel facilities, unique selling points and top incentive attractions, as well as details on the capacity of each meeting room in each meeting style. Corporate entries to the directory showcase what each property has to offer the business traveller, including the hotel’s facilities, specific corporate facilities and activities available for guests during business hours as well as leisure time.
John Clarke, Director of Sales and Marketing at Great Hotels of the World comments: “With a wide selection of MICE and corporate properties worldwide, our 2012 directory is the finest yet. Providing our hoteliers with greater exposure and allowing our trade partners to find a range of hotels suitable for their meetings, incentives and corporate travel events, the directory is a fantastic tool to aid buyers in selecting the perfect venue.”
The Meetings, Incentive and Corporate Travel Collection 2012 can also be browsed online as an e-book. This will be launched after EIBTM.
