Industry Veteran AHR Introduces Concierge-Style Service to a New Generation of Meeting Planners and CMP’s

Share Article

AHR Site Selection Solution makes life easier for new meeting planners with personalized, free site selection services - the opposite of modern hotel site selection portals.

Today’s meeting planners are exposed to websites that claim to help with the time-consuming site selection process - yet these sites just serve TMI - too much information that the meeting planner has to sort. We provide a real, custom service for CMP's.

How do you introduce the idea of personal service to a digital generation of CMP's using impersonal hotel site selection portals to find hotels for meetings?

AHR Site Selection Solution announced today that the company ( ) has entered into an exclusive relationship with CIC – the Convention Industry Council - AHR will be the sole representative of hotel site selection services for meeting and event professionals on the CIC website.

AHR Site Selection Solution is saying ‘Hello’ to a new generation CMP's and would-be meeting and event planners on the CIC site - the only one where new meeting planners can obtain their official Certified Meeting Planner designation, and where existing CMP's can maintain their CMP status.

AHR President Ron Robertson and Director of Sales Annie Diaz-Cannon expect this exposure to new meeting planners who are just getting started in the industry, to benefit both AHR and young meeting professionals who are not familiar with the venerable, 23 year old firm’s expert and customized services.

AHR President Ron Robertson said; “Today’s meeting planners are exposed to websites that claim to help with the time-consuming site selection process - yet these sites just serve TMI - too much information that the meeting planner has to sort through. We provide a real service for CMP's. AHR offers fast, customized service that helps meeting professionals - even acting as a no-cost employee for associations, corporations and government agencies who need help planning numerous meetings and events in the US and internationally. Meeting planners can expect about 2 weeks of site selection research delivered to them within 24 hours at no cost. All they have to do then is choose their favorite hotel or resort option.

Every meeting planner’s event is unique – so we provide unique, customized solutions for them:
Destination Review and Updates - Contract Verbiage - Concessions - and Fully Organized Site Inspection Trips for our clients. With our proprietary site selection process, we do the research and compile all this information into a comprehensive package for the meeting planner to give to management in 24 hours. So, we’re providing a boutique service that the very large companies cannot. That’s why many CMP’s have been using AHR for so many years to find them the best results for meeting venues. We like to develop a personal relationship with our clients so that they can pick up the phone and talk us like an old friend in the business, and in most cases - we are.”

AHR's Director of Marketing and Media Richard Prescott added "In today‘s world, quality is all about hand-crafted, ‘bespoke’ made to order – not the mass produced or automatic. Think of a suit by a tailor vs. off the rack, vs. Sears. Everything old is new again when you’re speaking of high quality services and products. So while AHR is a modern company where it needs to be; due to our vast experience and industry contacts, we’re able to provide 'old school' customized, unique solutions that are special ordered and ‘handmade’ by a very seasoned professional; tailor-made for the individual meeting planner and their special event planning needs. This provides the best of both worlds for meetings and event professionals and CMP’s; the hand selected as well as the digital."
