Marriott International has launched a new planner online portal, Marriott Bonvoy Events. The new site builds on the former Meetings Imagined platform, providing detailed, meetings-focused information about more than 5,700 participating hotels in Marriott International's portfolio. As with the hospitality giant's previous efforts, Marriott Bonvoy Events is also meant to inspire planners and, as such, will include articles, expert tips, trends, success stories, destination information and promotions.
As the name of the site implies, Marriott is highlighting its newest loyalty program, Bonvoy, which rolls into one the former Marriott Rewards, SPG and Ritz-Carlton Rewards platforms. An integrated points calculator estimates the number of points planners can receive from booking events at each participating hotel.

Navigation features include an interactive map for conducting site searches by destination with the ability to add filters. Searches turn up hotel details such as number of guest rooms, total meeting space, largest meeting space, floor plans and last renovation date, as well as properties in development and their projected opening dates. Planners can click to view hotel presentations and send requests for proposal to selected properties.
