Corporate Business Travel - What is important

Corporate business travel is a huge revenue stream now for hotels worldwide with many chains and independents fiercely selling their product to this market.

Most hotels now have glossy brochures, fancy websites and even mobile websites these days but are they really promoting a product that the corporate business travel person actually requires.

For a business travel hotel to really specialise in looking after the corporate travel market then we feel they have to offer the things are really important to them. All too often though when Well Placed Conference look to book hotels for business travel for our clients, the hotels fall short on their offering!

 Studies show so that the single most important thing that the corporate business traveller requires is

Complimentary In-Room Wireless Internet!

Now we understand that some hotel chains are locked into contracts and that some independents see it as a new revenue stream to replace the lost telephone sales but its the one thing we get asked for before we book a hotel. Hotels have to start offering this complimentary as standard if they are to remain competitive to the business travel market.

Other 'must haves' from the corporate market that Well Placed Conference ensure their clients get when making hotel reservations are:
  • Complimentary Breakfast
  • Promotions & discounts
  • 24 hour business centre
  • 24 hour fitness facilities
  • Good loyalty programmes
Well Placed Conference are specialists in corporate hotel reservations, business accommodation and business hotel bookings and we ensure you get exactly what you want for the right price.

At the very least you should get complimentary in-room WIFI these days, in my opinion.
