Accommodation: guaranteed quotas and rates
Event organisers will soon benefit from a new booking plan in Bordeaux with AccorHotels Group.
Bordeaux Events and AccorHotels Bordeaux have partnered together to establish a booking policy and attractive rates for organisers of professional events to be held in the medium to long-term (over 18 months).
Events hosted by Bordeaux Events and requiring accommodations at several hotel establishments will benefit from a guaranteed allotment of rooms at Accor Group hotels in Bordeaux. With 3,500 rooms in 2 and 4-star hotels in the Bordeaux region, the group can meet large demands.
Once the agreement is signed, AccorHotels commits to booking a quota of rooms for the organisers.
This allotment of rooms available for organisers includes special rates, established at the signing of the contract, with controlled changes up until the date of the event.
Guaranteed accommodation, a major benefit in enhancing the attractiveness of the destination for MICE stakeholders
Bordeaux Events intends to host more national and international events, especially with the opening of Palais 2 l’Atlantique at Bordeaux Exhibition Centre. For these types of events, organisers prefer cities that are accessible and offer impressive infrastructures. Accommodation is also key in the choice of destination. Bordeaux offers a solution that matches the scale of these events, with its 7,500 hotel rooms. The city therefore has all that is needed to host large-scale conferences, trade shows or conventions.
This agreement has now strengthened the city’s position. Signed by the management of the AccorHotels Group in Bordeaux, the aim is to include all the group’s stakeholders that are present in the region.
This agreement is a first step for the Bordeaux destination, with plans to expand this partnership to include all the region’s hotels who are interested in this opportunity.
The Bordeaux Events team features a unit dedicated to hotel bookings for participants of events held at its 4 sites. The team is available to assist organisers by providing information on accommodation options and advising them in their selection based on the event’s audience and location.
