Ian Quartermaine from Dezika and Louise Goalen, 2017 Chair of the HBAA are very pleased to announce that they are now working together on the issue of commission in the MICE industry.
This often-frustrating process is currently one of the hot button topics in the events world. With hotel chains, venues and other providers who pay commission finding the process too complex and resource heavy, many hotels and venues are looking for a way to simplify the process and enable both suppliers and agents to be able to cost effectively collect, reconcile and report commissions. With many suppliers now looking at streamlining their systems, and with many smaller agencies in danger of not receiving commissions, it is vital that we simplify the process, as well as communicate as a group to ensure that our voices are heard.
This cooperation will give HBAA members access to the Dezika automated commission collection process for all of their meetings and events at a reduced fee.
Ms. Goalen, the Chair of the HBAA said, “We are really pleased to be working with Dezika. Commission has always been one of the cornerstones of the HBAA Code of Conduct.”
Dezika CEO, Ian Quartermaine, has expressed his enthusiasm for working with the HBAA to ensure that their members can deal with commission collection in a smoother manner, thus freeing them up to bring in new business.
Rachelle Valladares, Regional Director Europe for Dezika, will be moderating a panel discussion on commission at the Meetings Show in London in June on behalf of the HBAA.
