Cvent Announces Integrations with Sabre Hospitality to Elevate and Streamline the Group Booking Process
The Cvent platform will integrate with Sabre SynXis Central Reservation System allowing hotels to easily manage their group business and maximize revenue
TYSONS, Va., Aug. 14, 2023- Cvent, an industry-leading meetings, events, and hospitality technology provider and Sabre Corporation (NASDAQ: SABR), a leading software and technology provider that powers the global travel industry, have expanded their partnership to provide two new integrations. The integrations aim to elevate and streamline group booking capabilities for thousands of event organizers and independent properties and chains worldwide.
Cvent has integrated its Cvent Instant Book (for small/simple meetings) and Cvent Passkey (room block management) tools with Sabre Hospitality’s SynXis Central Reservation System (CRS). These integrations enable a seamless journey from venue sourcing and booking, to guest room fulfillment on Cvent’s unified platform, providing a streamlined experience for hotels, event organizers, and guests. By combining Sabre's expertise in hotel reservation systems with Cvent's best-in-class event and hospitality technology, the announcement highlights both companies’ dedication to raising the industry standard for the group booking and guest experience.
“We are committed to enabling hotels to expand their revenue opportunities beyond the room,” said Tom Murray, vice president of product management & partner organization at Sabre Hospitality. “Through these integrations with Cvent Instant Book and Cvent Passkey, hotels can target both large and smaller groups with exclusive conference and event rates to increase revenue. By leveraging the strengths of Sabre’s comprehensive SynXis Central Reservation platform and Cvent's technology, hospitality businesses can optimize their operations, streamline guest engagement, and deliver personalized experiences."
“We’re excited to announce these integrations with SynXis as it further expands our platform functionality in a way that benefits both the hotelier and the event organizer,” said Janine Alsalam, vice president of sales at Cvent. “85% of planners say they would be more likely to book a property that has direct instant booking capabilities, and we’re proud to bring this capability to Sabre’s hotel clients. We continue to work with our industry partners, like Sabre, to broaden our platform functionality and integrate with the systems hoteliers and event organizers use every day. This announcement further illustrates the valuable role technology plays in optimizing hotel operations and delivering incredible guest and attendee experiences.”
The joint efforts of Cvent and Sabre Hospitality signify a shared commitment to revolutionizing the hospitality industry through best-in-class technology and robust integrations. With this strategic partnership, both companies are poised to shape the future of guest and group experiences, setting new industry benchmarks for customer satisfaction and operational excellence.
