Marriott International launches Marriott Bonvoy Business Ready, a new travel program exclusively for small to medium size businesses (SMBs) across Europe, Middle East and Africa.
This enables SMBs to book business travel easily and efficiently, while accessing preferential rates. Of course, when the time is right for them to travel again.
“The global pandemic has had significant impact on business travel this year. However, just like the pent up demand for leisure travel, there is pent up demand for business travel. As people are working remotely this year, they are keen to get back to meeting partners, suppliers and colleagues and connect face to face. There is no virtual replacement for doing business in person. Business Ready offers a great new opportunity for small and medium size businesses to efficiently book business travel, earn points and access great rates across Europe, Middle East and Africa portfolio of over 950 hotels and 24 brands across 75 countries and territories,” says Neal Jones, Chief Sales and Marketing Officer, Marriott International, EMEA.
