 Welcome

MAKE YOUR PLANS NOW TO ATTEND THE NEXT VBTA MEETING: HOTEL RATE AUDITS - DON'T LEAVE MONEY ON THE TABLE!  

Please join us as we welcome Eric Hofer, Director of Sales & Account Management for North America at HRS Global Hotel Solutions. Every year, we spend significant time and resources negotiating hotel rates and services for companies. This effort is only worthwhile when negotiated rates and conditions are available to travelers. HRS and GBTA co-sponsored a global study showing that companies around the world often pay more than they should – and they don’t even know it. Hotel rate audits offer a solution – but only when done the right way. Eric will present findings from the global study at our August 10 evening meeting, sharing local and global insights as well as steps you can take to ensure your travelers are seeing the hotel rates and amenities you negotiated for them.
