Lodging Interactive, a full-service digital marketing, social media engagement, and reputation management agency exclusively serving the hospitality industry, said hotel customers are experiencing a pent-up demand in wedding related RFP submissions through its RFPAssist Messenger service.
“In the past two weeks we have seen a lift in wedding related RFP submissions for this fall and 2021,” stated DJ Vallauri, Lodging Interactive’s Founder, President and CEO. “While RFP volumes are not at the same levels as pre-COVID, it’s an encouraging sign of recovery.”
RFPAssist is a proprietary Facebook Messenger marketing automation platform developed by CoMMingle:Engage that enables 24/7 capture of wedding and small meeting sales leads for hotels. The RFPAssist technology is enhanced by the Company’s human support agents, 24/7 to ensure all business opportunities are supported around the clock.
According to the latest Northstar’s Pulse Survey, business travel is also on the rise. The survey reported, that for the first time in nearly two months, more planners are booking business (39 percent) rather than just looking (35 percent). The survey also concluded that small meetings will see the largest growth opportunities.
“Competition amongst properties to capture event sales opportunities is undoubtedly going to be very intense in the coming months, and in 2021. We believe RFPAssist can provide the competitive edge to win business,” added Mr. Vallauri.
