CHICAGO — Hyatt Hotels Corporation is set to launch the Hyatt Planner Portal, a comprehensive tool for meeting planners designed to enhance the overall planning experience.
The solution will allow meeting planners to work in one tool throughout the planning process to manage meeting details, including contracts, attendee information and costs throughout planning stages. 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.
“Created with feedback directly from meeting planners, this solution aims to alleviate pain points planners face and capture information in one place so they can spend more time focusing on what is most important for their attendees,” says Steve Enselein, SVP of Events at Hyatt.
As part of the Hyatt Planner Portal, Hyatt is 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 hyatt.com with their group name, event dates and selected hotel to share with attendees. The portal will then allow planners to view confirmed attendees and generate reports in the portal about guest arrivals, cancellations and departures.
Additional features include banquet menus, event-space floor plans and access to collaborative diagramming software.
The new tool will be integrated with Hyatt’s Event Concierge App and will be available, by invitation only, across Hyatt’s global portfolio in early 2019.
