In the February meeting, we will cover the variety of reasons many travel managers feel hotels play with rate offerings. Then, we will cover what you can do to overcome presented obstacles to generate more value from your hotel program and savings for your company. This session is helpful to both: travel manager looking for ways to optimize your hotel program through a more effective and efficient negotiations strategy and hoteliers seeking to better understand travel managers’ goals.  TMC will also see value as the intermediary.

The Detroit Marriott in Southfield has offered the Michigan Business Association 20% off room rate for the night of February 14th.
