Business Development Manager – MICE
Great Hotels of the World – London, United Kingdom
These are new positions to work on launching a new membership pack aimed at independent MICE hotels. Although the pack is new, the Great Hotels of the World brand is the leading MICE brand for independently owned hotels.
The primary objective of the position is to recruit independent hotels with MICE facilities into our forums. The proposition is compelling. We enable hoteliers to meet with pre-qualified hosted buyers in a networking environment in different cities around the globe. In fact the format is so successful that we created World Wide Events so that non-member hotels could benefit from our forums. Over 95% of hotels that attend our forum events, attend again.
Once you recruit hotels, you will be responsible for maintaining the relationship and closing repeat business. It goes without saying that you will attend the forums and affirm your customer relationships. This is a great opportunity to join a great team that is a leader in its field with a product that delivers.
