With the Group Reservations Identification Programs (G.R.I.P), you can avoid tedious, manual reviews of housing lists to more effectively identify your attendees.
Groups are often concerned that attendees may have made reservations at a hotel -- using unofficial reservation methods or other third party Web portals -- without identifying themselves as members of the group. Such groups want to review the hotel’s registration list to identify attendees who reserved rooms outside the room block, receive the proper credit and, ultimately, reduce performance damages. Other benefits of G.R.I.P include:
G.R.I.P allows planners to access an automated cross-reference of group registration lists against rooms reserved. It is offered free of charge to event planners and is available at the Hilton Austin.
