When sourcing programs that are for further out years or for International destinations we are noticing a trend in a longer turnaround time. Hotels are taking a bit longer to respond because they are picking and choosing what works best for them for future years now that they can. The HPN Global sourcing team is still following up with our promised 24-72-hour turnaround time in mind but it is very important to be aware of what we are seeing as a trend in the market.
HPN Global always encourages clients for date flexibility on the front end. With the space availability being so limited in a lot of our top destinations, we are noticing a lot more revisions coming through to check alternate dates. If we have this information on the front end we can cut out a lot of time and provide our clients with the best available options while avoiding a prolonged search.
If you have any questions on the tips above, or would like to activate an RFP with HPN Global – please don’t hesitate to reach out.
