Passkey launches new hotel booking portal for meeting planners

Passkey is streamlining the hotel booking experience for meeting and events by launching PasskeyANYWHERE, a new, free and open-for-all online portal for meeting planners at planners.passkey.com.

The new portal lets any planner offer a hotel booking website for any of their events, while using a set of tools such as event dashboards and email alerts that enhance the event experience.

With the launch of its planner portal, Passkey is also unveiling a new set of cloud-based tools that help meeting planners drive even more successful events and financial value while reducing their workload, worry and risks. These tools include planner hotel reviews, preferred hotel and venue search and certified event histories (event certificates).

  • Online hotel booking at any hotel: Meeting planners now have the ability to offer attendees the convenience of online hotel booking for any event, at any hotel, worldwide.
  • Centralized accommodation management: Meeting planners can track reservations and other critical information about all of their events in one central location.
  • Event certificates: An event certificate summarizes an event's actual performance history, including overall booking percentage, night-by-night booking and booking pace. It is available at the conclusion of any event in GroupMAX and can be instrumental for planners and hotels to reach mutually favorable terms for future events.
  • Preferred venue search: Planners can easily find hotels and destinations that offer Passkey's full set of tools as part of their standard event offering, helping them narrow their search to the best hotels and destinations.
  • Planner hotel reviews: Planners can write a private hotel review (seen only by the host hotel) for hotels where their events were held and managed in Passkey. This provides both hotels and planners a valuable and credible review and feedback mechanism that is focused solely on the event experience.
