Hyatt announces new planning tool for meetings and events
19 Oct 2018 - by
Hyatt has unveiled the Hyatt Planner Portal, a comprehensive tool for meetings planners, designed to enhance the overall planning experience at Hyatt, and available for use in 2019.
With this solution, meeting planners can work in one tool throughout the planning process to manage meeting details, including contracts, attendee information and costs throughout planning stages. The Hyatt Planner Portal will also contain information on current, upcoming and past meetings and events, giving planners the ability to review details, access event history and generate reports whenever needed.
As part of the Hyatt Planner Portal, Hyatt is also releasing a new proprietary technology tool to help planners facilitate attendee room reservations. Once the room block is confirmed, meeting planners will receive a custom reservation link on the Hyatt website with their group name, event dates and selected hotel, to share with attendees. As attendees confirm their stay, they will automatically be added to rooming lists in the Hyatt Planner Portal for planners to view. Planners will also be able to get a full view of attendees with the option to generate reports in the portal about guest arrivals, cancellations and departures, and will also receive banquet menus and event space floor plans.
This new platform builds on Hyatt’s suite of planner-focused tools that are designed to support more seamless meeting and event experiences. The tool will therefore be integrated with Hyatt’s event concierge app, a platform that allows planners to make requests directly to the hotel team via a mobile app, and Group Bill, which organises all costs into a single invoice for easy payment.
