TFE launches real-time bookings for MICE

TFE Hotels is bringing MICE planning and booking into the 21st century with the launch of the first booking engine for the events industry.

TFE Hotels is bringing MICE planning and booking into the 21st century with the launch of the first booking engine for the events industry.

 

Unveiled this week, the next-generation technology gives event planners the freedom to search, book and pay function space, drink and food menus plus accommodation whenever and wherever.

Up until now, planners have had to contact sales representatives to organise all of the above, which offers personal interaction but is a little less convenient for those on the run.

It doesn’t just benefit event organisers, is also offers TFE centralised control over its MICE bookings and inventory functions.

MICE Technology and business travel

Customers also have the ability to add packages for specific date ranges, yielding revenue for the properties.

The launch comes after a six-month trial and according the CEO of iVvy, the technology company TFE partnered with the launch the product, it offers travellers ‘the fastest way to manage revenues across all of their channels’.

“People can work in real time, getting what they want, where they want it, at a time that they want it.”
