Excerpt from Travel Weekly
Dream Hotel Group has announced that it will offer 12-percent commissions for qualified groups and meetings booked and actualized this year.
According to a statement issued by the company, the new offer is available to conference and event organizers, as well as third-party meeting planners and group travel agents. The offer expires December 31.
"In a time where travel agents and meeting planners seem underappreciated, we want to remind them that Dream Hotel Group is here, and we love their business," Jay Stein, CEO, Dream Hotel Group, said in the statement.
"We recognize and value the important role our intermediary partners play in attracting business and group bookings to our hotels. The decision to increase group commissions demonstrates Dream Hotel Group's commitment to supporting and maintaining a mutually beneficial partnership with third-party planners, particularly independent event organizers, with whom we have built long-standing relationships."
The move by Dream Hotel Group comes at a time when hotel brands such as Hilton and Marriott have been making headlines for slashing group commissions.
