There is a general consensus that all industrial sectors are shaping up in order to remain relevant to the advancements of our times, may that be in the form of technological development, enhanced knowledge or wider market opportunities. Keeping up with the trends, associations meetings have evolved, requiring elite services from the venues they choose to host their conferences or put up their delegates. That’s where the Hilton hotels steal the spotlight.
Dedicated to fulfilling its mission to be the world’s most hospitable company, Hilton has welcomed more than 3 billion guests in its nearly 100 year history. The guest loyalty program, Hilton Honors, takes personalisation of the guest’s stay to a whole new level, members who book directly have access to instant benefits, including digital check-in with room selection, Digital Key and Connect Room, have placed Hilton at the top when it comes to innovation.
Associations have the opportunity to benefit from all that the group has to offer as they are welcome in over 5,500+ hotels located in 109 countries. Starting from the variety of its locations showcasing city life, countryside, exotic resorts or even cultural and historical sites all the way to easy access and undeniable hospitality facilities, associations’ particular needs are fully covered.
With flexibility being an important demand by associations, Hilton offers the option to reduce the number of delegates by 20% cumulative from the time of booking until 45 days prior to arrival. A reduced deposit guarantee of 80% of the amount to be paid by the association is just as an attractive feature as the fact that no deposit guarantee from the association is required for rooms that are to be booked and paid for by each delegate.
On top of the financial benefits, technological innovation is present also in this context. A web-based tool allows delegates to book and modify their accommodation directly online, while this same tool can be personalised with the organiser’s text and image.
On an individual level, association members receive a 10% discount off the Best Available Rate by booking, and enjoy on-property benefits when staying at Hilton, including breakfast or access to gyms and spas. While there will also be zero blackout dates (book what you need any time!), booking online will be efficient, easy and transparent through the Hilton brand websites or via the Hilton Honors App.
