Great Hotels of the World (http://www.ghotw.com), the global hotel sales and marketing alliance, has announced the launch of a brand new trade directory combining their Meetings, Incentive and Corporate Travel collections. The new Meetings, Incentive and Corporate Travel Collection 2011 was officially launched at last week’s World Travel Market in London.  The new edition includes over 130 of the world’s best MICE and corporate hotels, all offering outstanding facilities and services for groups and corporate travellers. The directory will be distributed to meeting planner and corporate travel buyers and will also be available at trade events including Great Hotels Meeting Forums (http://www.ghorg.com/forum/) and Road Shows.

 Carly Gotz, group director, sales and marketing at Great Hotels of the World says: “The combination of our MICE and corporate directories means a bigger and better directory. It will benefit our hoteliers with a wider distribution and will also allow our trade partners to browse suitable hotels for corporate negotiated contracts as well as for meetings and incentives.”

The Meetings, Incentive and Corporate Travel Collection 2011 can also be browsed online as an e-book. Browse the Meetings, Incentive & Corporate Travel Collection e-book (http://www.net-paper.com/Clients/GreatHotels/2011/).

By acknowledging that each hotel’s core business is different, Great Hotels of the World helps hotels and consumers to “find their niche” by categorising member hotels into niche travel markets. Great Hotels’ dedicated programmes are aimed at the leisure, meetings and incentive and corporate markets, whilst the individual leisure collections reach precise areas of the market in which the hotel specialises in including gourmet, spa, golf, honeymoon and many more.

Membership of Great Hotels of the World is split into three tiers: the Luxury Collection, the Premium Collection and the Classic Collection and is by invitation only. Hotels must meet strict criteria before being accepted into the brand.
