International hotel group Accorhotels has announced an expanded partnership with meetings, events and hospitality technology company Cvent.
Accorhotels will now utilise Cvent’s Business Transient solutions exclusively across its more than 4,500 hotels worldwide to manage its corporate travel programmes.
The two brands will also collaborate on the creation of new technology for hospitality professionals.
The Business Transient tools allow hotels to manage their RFP process, market to corporate travel buyers and improve operational efficiency.
Kathleen Garcia, vice president of sales for Cvent’s Hospitality Cloud, said: “Accorhotels, one of Europe’s most recognised hospitality brands, has embraced this opportunity to grow their corporate travel programmes across their thousands of hotels, and we are proud to be their exclusive business travel management solution. We look forward to supporting their continued success and working as a trusted partner to help them grow their MICE and corporate travel business worldwide.”
Agathe Fabron, VP of business travel and meetings and events at Accorhotels, added: “We have worked with Cvent for ten years and our properties have been very satisfied with the seamless workflow of Cvent tools both on MICE and corporate travel business. Many of our properties have been using Cvent Business Transient for their travel needs and the positive impact we have seen thus far made the decision to roll it out worldwide very easy. We look forward to continuing this long-standing relationship and to work hand-in-hand with the Cvent team to drive our corporate travel business, and the industry, forward.”
