“Eighty percent of Fortune 100 companies use Cvent technology, and more than 1.5 million RFPs were sourced through Cvent's Business Transient platform in the last year, which indicates its indispensable role for both buyers and sellers in the corporate travel market. Properties that are able to fully leverage the platform to help them attract corporate buyers with smarter marketing solutions will ultimately generate more booked room nights,” said Kathleen Garcia, Vice President of Sales for Cvent's Hospitality Cloud. “AccorHotels, one of Europe's most recognized hospitality brands, has embraced this opportunity to grow their corporate travel programs across their thousands of hotels, and we are proud to be their exclusive business travel management solution.

The solutions will help the properties better manage their RFP process, market to corporate travel buyers, and improve operational efficiency, facilitating future business transient growth. AccorHotels' use of Cvent highlights the opportunity for leading hospitality brands to better manage their business travel needs.

Cvent and AccorHotels will also work together on the co-development of additional travel management capabilities that will focus on expanding transient sourcing features, creating the tools to give properties a more holistic view of rates across all market segments, and streamlining manual processes through deeper system integrations.

“We have worked with Cvent for 10 years and our properties have been very satisfied with the seamless workflow of Cvent tools both on MICE and corporate travel business,” said Agathe Fabron AccorHotels VP Business Travel & Meetings & Events. “Many of our properties have been using Cvent Business Transient for their travel needs and the positive impact we have seen thus far made the decision to roll it out worldwide very easy.
