Bookingzon, a specialist online accommodation bookings system provided by Convenus LLP has been appointed to provide a partnership service by Dundee & Angus Convention Bureau.
This is the latest cooperation between Bookingzon and UK conference destinations with a similar service being provided in Bournemouth, Bristol& Bath and Conwy & lLandudno.
In addition the system is being used on a partnership basis with a number of leading event agencies that do not provide an online accommodation booking facility as part of their service to clients.
Convenus Managing Partner Simon Richards said: “ This is a great opportunity to work with a forward thinking and fast developing destination. Our service compliments and supports their plans to provide top class venues and services to attract new and previous clients.
We have been constantly developing our system over the past 5 years and have just completed the design of a “self service” system option for those partners who prefer to manage everything themselves, however following a massive change in available resources during the pandemic many destinations are asking for more information on our full service model."
Bookingzon allows a CVB or Destination to offer a fully serviced delegate accommodation booking service to clients using guaranteed allocations at no cost as all costs are borne by Convenus with the added bonus that an agreed rebate of commission earned is made to the destination partner for future
This essentially means that delegates receive a first class service as part of the main destination/CVB offering but with no resource or cost for the destination partner required.
It really does provide for a first class user experience with no upfront licence or commission costs which will allow for a quicker and more profitable recovery for us all.
Karen Tocher, Business Events Manager, Dundee & Angus Convention Bureau. commented” As we plan for the reopening of business events, the team have worked to develop the services and support to better serve and secure future national and international meetings. The partnership with Convenus will allow the Bureau to actively support and attract more and larger events for the destination, freeing up valuable resource to focus efforts on proactive bid activity supported by our Pathfinders Programme.
