Fairmont Launches Dedicated Meetings Site

Toronto — Fairmont Hotels & Resorts has launched a dedicated website equipped with resources and tools for meeting planners.

The site, www.fairmontmeetings.com, is an effort by the hotel company to provide planners more online assistance. The portal has two destination and property search tools on its homepage that speed venue sourcing for meeting buyers. One is a prepared drop-down list, while the other works on keywords and room-capacity requirements.

Other tools on the site include a link to an electronic Request For Proposal form, planning and facility layout checklists that are downloadable as PDF files, and an interactive floor plan utility. Also there are information on destination management companies and tourism bureaus, fact sheets for each hotel, and destination information.

Fairmont, meanwhile, has launched Japanese, Latin American and European Spanish, German and French microsites providing property information for those native planners. The hotelier is looking to create Simplified Chinese and Arabic sites later this year.
