Booking individual hotel rooms can be easily made with a few clicks online, but booking rooms for a group can require more time and coordination. Jetaport is a free service that takes the hassle out of booking room blocks. Planners simply submit their trip details and preferred hotels on Jetaport’s website, and a Travel Advisor is assigned to each request to work with hotels to find the best available rates. “We help make it easier for planners," says CEO Jason Shames. Travel Advisors will give planners up to four possible trip proposals. Once an offer is accepted, Travel Advisors will request an electronic signature for the hotel's booking agreement and will personally connect the planner with the appropriate contact at the hotel, making booking a block of rooms stress free.

Because many of our colleagues are caffeinated enough during these stressful months, why not gift them a gentler, kinder holiday beverage? Tea Forté, a company based in Maynard, MA, offers handcrafted tea blends that are served at some of the finest hotels across the U.S. and Canada. Their Warming Joy 2021 holiday collection features a combination of black, green and herbal teas, including seasonal favorites like raspberry ganache, sweet orange spice, cherry marzipan, harvest apple spice and winter chai.

 

Chances are, you won’t know you’re living through history until it’s too late. It’s already happening. A chain reaction has been set in motion and the ground has begun to slide beneath your feet.

This past year has been a whirlwind to say the least. As a global pandemic sent the world reeling, planners were left grasping for footholds as the event industry was brought to a standstill, and many of the most fundamental elements of live meetings and events were cast in a new light.
