A division of Alliance Reservations Network, MyEventRFP was created after exhaustive research into the entire RFP process. Countless hours were spent with Meeting Planners, CVBs and Hotels discussing what they like, and dislike, about the RFP process. After many surveys, conference calls and focus groups were completed a trend started to emerge - people filling out RFPs and those receiving them are looking for the same thing - simplicity! An RFP is simply a means to get to the final goal for all involved - a wining bid.
MyEventRFP was designed to appeal to many users - those filling out the RFP's, those that receive the RFP's, and for those that only want to track the RFP's and utilize key reporting features. The days of endless emails and faxes back and forth are over!
Partners that can use MyEventRFP:
CVBs CVB's face a dilemma today - on one hand they need to properly utilize the funds they receive (either by membership dues or hotel tax revenue, or both) in a prudent manner, while on the other hand they face budget cuts and staffing issues. Many times a large group coming into town requiring many hotel meeting and sleeping rooms will attract all the CVBs attention, while the smaller weddings, sports teams and reunions will fall by the wayside as far as reporting goes. MyEventRFP brings to CVBs the tracking and reporting features they desire regarding smaller groups and the incremental revenue they produce in a market.
Meeting Planners MyEventRFP looks to cut down the time Meeting Planners spend filling out tedious RFP forms. Using MyEventRFP can save a Meeting Planner the equivalent of over 12 weeks of work time each year- that is almost a full Quarter! Unlike some RFP tools, MyEventRFP is not limited to working with certain brands or management companies - over 112,000 hotel properties worldwide have the ability to receive a MyEventRFP.
Hotelsand Resorts Hotels are being crushed by the weight of the many RFP's they receive. Hotels are left to pick-and-choose which RFP's to respond to - sometimes leaving what could be valuable business on the table because they simply do not have the time to respond. MyEventRFP "cuts to the chase", giving hotel personnel only what they need to make a bid on the event. In addition, hotels can see what other hotels they are bidding against, and they will also appreciate the fact that an RFP coming from MyEventRFP for a family reunion of 25 people will not be sent to 50 hotels!
Online Travel Agencies and Online Marketers Online Travel Agencies and Online Marketers can now add this private-label application to their website to allow their customers the ability to find venues for their own groups and events. Whenever a customer does a search for greater than 9 sleeping rooms, or is in need of meeting space or food & beverage, they will link to a private-label version of our application in which the Online Travel Agency or Marketer can earn a commission or rebate revenue as the agency of record on the referral to the hotel or resort. Unlike other RFP forms that share a small portion of the commission they earn with the online travel agency, the MyEventRFP application allows the Online Travel Agency or Marketer to keep 100% of the commission or rebate revenue earned using our proprietary application. All this for one low monthly flat fee!
Corporate Travel Agencies MyEventRFP allows a Corporate Travel
Agency the ability to offer their clients the use of a dynamic, private-label,
interactive RFP application. When group reservations are booked using this
application, the Corporate Travel Agency is the agency of record on all
meeting and sleeping room transactions, and can earn a commission or rebate revenue
on the referral to the hotel or resort. In addition, the Corporate Travel Agency
can also act as the meeting planner, and go through the entire RFP process utilizing MyEventRFP on
behalf of their client.
