Six new questions to help travel buyers understand hotels’ environmental and dynamic pricing policies were added to the National Business Travel Association (NBTA) Modular Hotel RFP for the 2009 bid season.
“Because it is an industry-standard tool, the Hotel RFP saves a tremendous amount of time for buyers and suppliers alike, and creates a level field for the process of evaluating hotel bids for corporate business,” said NBTA President & CEO Kevin Maguire. “For the RFP to remain useful, the committee must take into account changing industry trends without changing the document so much or so frequently that it is too costly for hotels and buyers to keep up. The changes for the 2009 bid season are a perfect example of how the committee meets that challenge.”
The RFP is available to NBTA members at no charge at nbta.org.
