Hotel Accommodation Services
The success of an event depends on much more than what happens at the venue. Event organisers are also expected to provide a full range of services, and accommodation is a vital element.
Providing hotel accommodation is an integral part of our core PCO services. Our specialised accommodation booking and management service helps provide a seamless experience that adds to the value of every event and underlines the professionalism and prestige of the organiser.
We take care of hotel procurement
We have a team of hotel accommodation consultants with wide-ranging expertise in identifying and handling the most suitable accommodation options for any conference. No matter the size, our accommodation management team has the knowledge about available venues and the skills needed to book and manage accommodation for conferences with up to twenty-five thousand delegates.
Over the years, our experts have built an extensive network of contacts with leading hotel chains that allows us to secure the most competitive room rates and favourable conditions for our clients. This frees event organisers to focus on other aspects of the event and provides a seamless experience for event participants and speakers.
