Marriott International provided a boost to planners and other meeting professionals last week by announcing the launch of Marriott Bonvoy Events.

If you’re familiar with Marriott’s Meetings Imagined, the new platform builds off that concept. Marriott Bonvoy Events provides planners with detailed information about the brand’s portfolio of more than 5,700 participating properties.

The platform may also foster inspiration for planners. Articles will be provided on topics such as industry developments, and tips and trends from meeting experts. The experts will also share success stories, destination highlights and promotions from hotels around the world.

The site also touches on other aspects of planning to help the workload of event professionals. An interactive map feature allows planners to easily conduct a filtered search to find the perfect hotel to host an event. Acting as a dynamic resource for planners, the site will provide hotel details such as number of guest rooms, total meeting space, largest meeting space and floor plans, and facilitate submission of RFPs for participating hotels.

“With the launch of Marriott Bonvoy Events, planners can easily navigate the depth and breadth of the Marriott International portfolio to select the property that best fits their meeting or event needs,” said Tammy Routh, senior vice president of global sales at Marriott International. “The website was designed to offer the facts and figures our clients need alongside inspiration to execute dynamic events, all in one user-friendly experience.”

The platform’s Points Calculator enables meeting professionals to estimate the number of Marriott Bonvoy points earned for each meeting or event held at participating hotels. Marriott Bonvoy Events takes the resources of Meetings Imagined and heightens the value of the platform that could make any meeting or event professional’s life easier.
