TOPIC SERIES

As part of a recent survey, we polled ABC members and potential members within Southern Maryland to solicit feedback in an effort to better serve our LNG. We found that the areas of Administrative Resources, Marketing, Vendor Relationships, and Event Execution were highly requested topics of discussion for upcoming meetings. In response to this feedback, we will be conducting a series of conversations surrounding these subjects to help you advance in your growing business! This series will feature various industry experts to assist you in your business goals for a properous 2019!


TOPIC 2 (Vendor Relationships) - Hotel Group Blocks: The Crash Course

One of the many benefits included in your membership is the ability to have an extra stream of income from hotel room blocks. In our recent "Learning from the Masters" video series, we learned how to navigate through submitting request under the organizations IATA number. Obtaining an IATA number independently is very challenging and can cost upwards of $15,000! Why not earn extra income on commissions set up for your groups whether it be for events, weddings or even sports activities when your kid's team travels?

His presentation will cover many areas under this umbrella, centered around what happens from start to finish once you connect with the property on your group's behalf. Take steps to elevate your client’s experience by being fully educated on the process for an effective outcome. This is a presentation you don't want to miss!
