Cvent and Sabre Corporation, a leading software and technology provider for the global travel industry, have expanded their partnership to provide two new integrations, with the aim of streamlining group booking capabilities for event organizers and independent properties and chains worldwide.
Cvent has integrated its Cvent Instant Book (for small/simple meetings) and Cvent Passkey (room block management) tools with Sabre Hospitality’s SynXis Central Reservation System (CRS). These integrations enable a seamless journey from venue sourcing and booking, to guest room fulfillment on Cvent’s unified platform.
“We are committed to enabling hotels to expand their revenue opportunities beyond the room,” said Tom Murray, vice-president of product management & partner organization at Sabre Hospitality. “Through these integrations with Cvent Instant Book and Cvent Passkey, hotels can target both large and smaller groups with exclusive conference and event rates to increase revenue. By leveraging the strengths of Sabre’s comprehensive SynXis Central Reservation platform and Cvent’s technology, hospitality businesses can optimize their operations, streamline guest engagement, and deliver personalized experiences.”
“We’re excited to announce these integrations with SynXis as it further expands our platform functionality in a way that benefits both the hotelier and the event organizer,” said Janine Alsalam, vice president of sales at Cvent. “Eighty-five percent of planners say they would be more likely to book a property that has direct instant booking capabilities, and we’re proud to bring this capability to Sabre’s hotel clients. We continue to work with our industry partners, like Sabre, to broaden our platform functionality and integrate with the systems hoteliers and event organizers use every day. This announcement further illustrates the valuable role technology plays in optimizing hotel operations and delivering incredible guest and attendee experiences.”
