Geneva, October 12, 2017. MCI is pleased to announce the start of a global strategic partnership with Wyndham Hotels Group, a global leading hotel brand franchisor and hotel management services provider. The agreement has been negotiated by MCI’s global group procurement team and is expected to offer superior conditions to clients and pre-agreed contract terms. Through this relationship, hotels under the Wyndham Hotel Group family of brands will receive priority invitations to respond for all MCI-managed groups, meetings and event leads.
According to Sébastien Tondeur, MCI Group CEO: “Almost 70% of our purchasing volume is directed toward the hotel industry. Going forward, we will be working to concentrate our volume amongst fewer partners so that our clients can benefit from MCI’s global purchasing power through better rates and contractual conditions."
Richard Torriani, MCI Group COO Americas, added: “As we grow our footprint in the USA, we are excited to expand our hotel reach through another worldwide hotel group partnership, but also with a strong American portfolio of brands and properties. As part of this partnership, we are pleased to launch the association template contract which will facilitate and accelerate our contracting with Wyndham Hotel Group globally by reducing the time spent on individual contract terms negotiation.”
Further commenting on that notion, Marc Stanley, Vice President, Global Sales EMEA, Wyndham Hotel Group said: “Our ‘Global Primary Preferred Agreement’ will greatly benefit both MCI’s clients and Wyndham Hotel Group’s fantastic portfolio of hotels. Meeting and event planners will be able to easily seek competitive bids from thousands of hotels around the world, and our hotels will experience an increase in the volume and quality of MICE group business leads from one of the largest meeting and conference organisers in the world.”
The addition of Wyndham Hotels Group to the MCI preferred hotels partners database becomes a key component of the company’s meetings and incentives platform. Serving both associations and corporations, MCI keeps enriching its strategic partnership portfolio for providing the best options available to the client.
