To Make Meeting Planning Easier
|BOSTON and PHILADELPHIA – April 12, 2005 – To enhance its appeal to
the meetings market, hotel management firm Pyramid Advisors today announced
plans to include StarCite RegWeb™ attendee management sites in selected
meeting contracts at two of its properties in Houston, Texas, and Daytona
As a value-add to attract selected meetings, sales executives at the Hilton Daytona Beach Oceanfront Resort and Houston Marriott Westchase properties may include RegWeb sites as part of their meeting proposals to clients. Customized to each meeting, each site will allow planners to promote the meeting using built-in e-marketing tools, register delegates to the meeting, specific sessions or events, and book sleeping rooms. Depending on the number of registrants, the value of each site could exceed $1,000.
“We know how challenging planning a meeting can be,” said Jim Dina,
Chief Operating Officer of Pyramid Advisors. “From the moment a planner
contacts us about a meeting, we’re trying to make it as easy as possible
to execute a flawless, successful event at one of our properties. By including
the buildout of a custom StarCite RegWeb site, we ease the pains of registration,
allowing planners to focus on what they do best.”
Online, automated management of housing, seminar and session capacities and meals also helps the hotels’ convention service managers more effectively and efficiently deliver flawless meetings to their customers. Planners can automatically send housing lists and updates to the hotel from their secure site.
“Pyramid Advisors recognizes the value that StarCite’s proven attendee management application brings to its customers,” said John Pino, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of StarCite, Inc., Philadelphia. “By including free registration tools in meeting proposals, these properties have made it even easier for planners to book business. RegWeb™ is a proven time and money saver and certainly adds a level of efficiency and uniqueness to Pyramid’s value proposition to customers. We’re delighted to be part of their comprehensive solution to time-challenged planners.”
Located on the beach, directly across from the Ocean Center Convention Complex, The Hilton Daytona Beach Oceanfront Resort just completed a multi-million dollar renovation. The 746-room property features 60,000 square feet of meeting space, including an 18,0000-square-foot ballroom.
The 600-room Marriott Houston Westchase is located in the rapidly growing Westchase Business District. Also recently renovated, the property features 40,000 square feet of meeting space in 22 rooms.
