It’s imperative you don’t miss Inntel’s Meetings Programme

Posted: 13th December 2017

Inntel are delighted to announce the new Inntel Meetings Programme (IMP), a collection of delegate rates specifically negotiated for SMEs and clients with lower volumes of spend.

The programme which piloted in January has enjoyed a successful first 6 months in operation. The IMP brings together rates from a wide range of UK suppliers to ensure there are a variety of venue options to suit all requirements.

Inntel’s Supplier Partnerships team carried out extensive, qualitative market analysis to develop exclusive terms and conditions for the programme that best reflect the needs of clients with limited meetings spend, for example reduced minimum numbers.

“This programme is designed with our smaller clients in mind, although of course our larger clients can also benefit. Most do not have sufficient volume to warrant their own discounted external meeting room rates, packages and terms whereas this programme will grant them access to fixed rates, bespoke terms and inclusions they would not get with general ad hoc bookings.

Our Supplier Partnerships Team have worked hard to ensure that the IMP offers a diverse selection of venues across all locations, from budget to luxury brands and from traditional to unique properties so there is an option for every budget.

We know that still only 35% of UK companies actively manage their external meeting spend and Inntel’s initiatives are designed to help them control their costs.”

Jane Dibble – Director of Business Development, Inntel

The programme follows Inntel’s Day Delegate Lite programme which was introduced in 2014. The programme targets clients who need to hold internal meetings but do not have the space or facilities to do so on site, offering them reduced ‘no frills’ day delegate packages with all the necessary amenities for a productive meeting.
