According to some estimates, 40% of corporate travel and entertainment spend is allocated to hotels and meeting spaces. It is no surprise that meeting professionals have a tremendous desire to save money and deliver greater ROI to their organizations by optimizing the sourcing process and costs. Still, finding and negotiating the perfect hotel while staying under budget is a time-consuming, pain-staking process.
Introducing Certain Sourcing, Powered by Lanyon
At Certain, we are committed to delivering a comprehensive solution to help you deliver greater value through meetings and events. In keeping with this promise, we are pleased to announce our latest partnership with Lanyon, the innovation leader in online sourcing of hotel room and meeting space.
