Meeting planners looking to book events at Kimpton hotels will find the process easier with a new suite of technology solutions aimed at taking some of the guess work out of finding the right environment
Kimpton has launched a new proprietary Kimpton iPad sales app. It is a highly visual, interactive tool for sales teams designed to showcase the more than 60 hotels within the Kimpton portfolio.
The app makes it easy to find the right location for corporate, social, and group events by showing photos, floorplans, menus, and venue-specific information during a real-time discussion to help bring future events to life in the mind’s eye. The new app walks guests through Kimpton’s meeting and events philosophy, look and feel of all hotels, meeting space, adjacent restaurants, and catering menus. Kimpton sales people are able to send out a follow-up email directly from the app to the potential client immediately afterward, including brochures about the hotels that were discussed during the meeting and comparison grids of all Kimpton hotels in various cities.
“Inherent to the Kimpton experience is our personal and collaborative approach,” said Christine Lawson, senior vice president, sales and catering for Kimpton Hotels and Restaurants. “It’s one of the many reasons our guests choose us; we’re uniquely positioned to be able to create one-of-a-kind meetings and events where absolutely nothing is cookie cutter.”
