Hakins Meetings & Incentives’ new VenYouTV showcases the people who support corporate group travel success at quality venues. The online channel provides corporate meeting planners an up-close view of the human face of properties and convention & visitor bureaus—with insight into the authentic personality of distinguished venues—many of which Hakins has partnered with in the past.
VenYouTV is a unique offering allowing corporate planners, with their program needs in mind, to begin evaluating hoteliers and destinations prior to conducting formal RFP’s and site visits. Initiating, and further helping to facilitate, the “virtual” relationship (that will eventually become real) with the aid of new media, Hakins brings the original goal of the venue search process back to its’ roots —working with people you know, trust, and enjoy.
Venues spotlighted will gain access to a new marketing platform offering time-sensitive, visual opportunities to connect with planner’s seeking to place their corporate travel programs at an appropriate venue.
As the economy-at-large, and the hospitality industry in particular, slowly get back on track, corporate group travel dollars will be spent wisely—at the appropriate time, to achieve a more refined goal, and with greater oversight. Hoteliers know, in this environment, client service delivered exceptionally and by the right team, will be an ever-more-important distinguishing characteristic in planners’ venue searches. Hakins’ VenYouTV is focused on maximizing exposure of that unique selling point. Hakins emphasizes, and always has, the importance of working with the right people and the right technology to streamline logistics, contain costs, and give corporate planners newfound band-width to focus on the WHAT of their meeting, rather than the HOW.
