Roomer Launches Roomer Partner Network to Maximize Profits for Meeting and Event Planners
7/31/2014
Roomer, the first company to ever provide a solution for nonrefundable hotel rooms, is pleased to announce today the launch of the Roomer Partner Network (RPN), a first of its kind offering designed to minimize loss and maximize profitability for meeting and event planners responsible for booking group hotel reservations.

The Roomer Partner Network is the latest strategic initiative from Roomer which makes group and business travel easier and more cost-effective. After identifying the $8.6 billion that is lost each year on nonrefundable hotel rooms, including group and incentive hotel room purchases, Roomer wanted to create an offering specifically designed for meeting and event planners stuck with restrictive cancellations and/or attrition on group hotel rooms they have booked for meetings, conferences and special events.

Likened to the "Booking.com™ for meeting and event planners," the Roomer Partner Network will act as a solution for attrition and help alleviate the risk that comes with group travel, by helping to fill any cancellations or open rooms that have previously been reserved. Meeting and event planners can now post unused hotel rooms from group bookings to RoomerTravel.com for consumers to purchase at a discounted rate, thus helping to recoup some of the money that would have been lost had the room gone unused.

"We are excited to see 'early-adopter' meeting and event planners utilizing the Roomer Partner Network as a much-needed solution for unused hotel rooms from group bookings," said Richie Karaburun, Managing Director of Roomer. "Our vision for The Roomer Partner Network is to provide a safe and effective solution for all parties involved in a group hotel booking cancellation, while simultaneously increasing hotel room options for consumers on RoomerTravel.com. Additionally, meeting and event planners recoup revenue they would have lost and, at the same time, hotel partners increase occupancy rates and incremental revenue - we see this as a true win-win model on all ends."

Currently, members from PCMA and MPI are using Roomer services to maximize their room black management, as well as increase profit for their clients. "When I first heard about Roomer and its concept, I thought to myself, 'How did I not think of this!,'" said Elad Kurtz of Kenes International. "Today, people are more conscious about the amount of money they spend when it comes to booking a hotel room and are constantly seeking discounts and bargains. Roomer provides a way for meeting and event planners to minimize the loss of any revenue from unused hotel rooms at a convention, meeting or conference, and reach into a larger consumer market."

Further details on the Roomer Partner Network and other RoomerTravel.com offerings will be announced throughout the year. For more information, please visit: www.roomertravel.com or call 1 (646) 571-2170.
