ATTN: Those recently furloughed or laid off in hotel, CVB or DMO sales
Connect is looking to pay furloughed or laid off hotel, CVB and DMO sales representatives who can help strengthen and grow our planner community at Connect live events. The response to the announcement last week that we are 100% moving forward with our event in August and our Safe + Clean Connect Plan has been overwhelmingly positive. It just solidifies that the entire industry is hurting and wants to get back to business. We are looking for a “win-win” solution that will help grow our events while helping our partners when they need it most.
How Connect live events work:
Connect hosts meeting planners from the Corporate, Sports, Luxury, Association and SMERF categories.
We look for planners who:
– Are decision makers
– Have business that moves regionally or nationally
– Book various peak rooms – based on category
– Are actively sourcing (Post COVID-19)
You stay engaged with your customers
You earn extra money during a trying time
New planners that may not be on our radar discover the great shows that Connect produces
If you are interested in hearing more about the opportunity, please contact Mark Wong, Director of Planner Sales, or Derek Rodriguez, Vice President of Sales.
