How Suppliers and Planners Can Negotiate to Get What They Need in an RFP
There is a lot of information that goes into an RFP and needs to be clearly stated to ensure that the planner gets an accurate and complete response to the inquiry.
Items include the date of the event and possible alternative dates, how many attendees, number of room nights needed, meeting/breakout rooms needed, AV requirements, and more.
A panel of Planners and Suppliers will discuss the RFP process and considerations like peak/demand/periods/when a hotel can be more flexible, food and beverage, cost of AV and requirements depending on the property, and how both Planners and Suppliers can negotiate so that both parties can collect all the information they need and have a positive outcome for both.
