What solutions do you offer hotel and destination partners and clients?

Hotel and destination partners: We offer Our Partners a sales and marketing presence in the U.S. without the expense or visa hassle of having a permanent employee in the U.S. Representing a collection of hotels, venues, & DMCs gives us greater access to clients, as opposed to trying to get appointments for each individual partner. For clients:  We offer clients a contact in close to the same time zone to assist with booking international properties.  We are experts at negotiating and mediating international hotel contracts.

What is a tangible benefit you offer Hotels, Venues & DMCs and Clients?

Hotel and destination partners: We help our partners save money by not having to employ a full-time salesperson (estimated at more than  $150k annually) in the U.S. or to pay for international travel costs for sales meetings and lead generation.  We have a greater presence in the U.S. market  and have a personal understanding of the properties and services in our collection, as well as the local U.S. clients’ needs.  Therefore, we offer better leads and referrals that are more likely to book business with your property.

What additional value and benefits do you add?

Hotel and destination partners: As a U.S. representative with strong client relationships, we are an extension of Our Partners – Hotels, Venues & DMCs – sales teams.  We can also be on call to visit clients and assist in closing high-value contracts.  We have a regular presence in the U.S. market, with face-to-face sales calls and attendance at events.  We allow the Directors of Sales of Our Partners to avoid regular international trips , giving them more time to manage other international markets and daily operations.  We operate in the same time zones our clients do. Meeting planners: Our expertise in negotiating with international hotels, venues & DMCs in over 100 countries makes us a trusted  resource with U.S. clients.  Planners don’t have to get up at 5am to call an international destination or wait for next day email exchanges.  We have extensive knowledge of many destinations for clients who are new to booking internationally.  Our relationship with our clients helps guide them to the properties and destinations tht best suit their needs.

What is the communication process with Hotels, Venues, DMCs and Clients?

Hotel and destination partners: We stay in regular touch with General Managers and Directors of Sales through monthly sales reports. Meeting planners: With clients, we have regular face-to-face contact at events and sales calls for each property , and regular updates through social media.

Do you help arrange site inspections? How involved are you in this process, if at all?

Yes, we will assist in setting up site inspections to Our Partners within the Anchor Collection.  We will introduce clients to a local point of contact to facilitate the site inspection on the ground.  We don’t typically attend the site inspection unless it warrants our presence.

Do you charge for any of your services?

Hotel and destination partners: We have a separate listing of pricing for Our Partners that want to benefit from our expanded sales outreach and resource in the U. S. Please inquire for more details. Meeting planners: We do not pass costs for our services on to meeting planners, and there are no markups for our services on hotel, venues or DMC contracts.

How many hotels, venues or DMCs do you have in the collection?

We are always expanding our collection to include unique properties and boutique destination managements companies.  When selecting new partners, we carefully assess the value to our clients and to the collection as a whole.  We select unique, unbranded, independent hotels, venues and boutique DMCs.  We will always remain small so that we can have a personal connection with our partners and first-hand knowledge of the property & destination.  If you would like to be included in our collection, please contact us for details .
