Is 7 the New 10? Special Report on Group Commissions

Is 7 the New 10? Special Report on Group Commissions | MCI Danmark | DK

When major hotel brands announced in 2018 that they were reducing their third-party commission for group bookings from 10 to 7%, it brought to a boil a debate that has long simmered among hotel companies, meeting planners, and third-party intermediaries — about value, accountability, and more. As a third party providing a variety of intermediation services to clients around the world, MCI is a part of this debate.

In a series of Thought Leader interviews with our global talents, we explore, challenge, and potentially upend the group-commission model.
