In contrast to the Extranets of most online travel agencies (OTAs), the availability calendar maintained in Expedia MeetingMarket displays occupied rooms, not available ones.
If you are using a reservation book or a simple Excel spreadsheet for your meeting rooms at the moment, we recommend checking whether MeetingMarket can relieve you of this work, by making use of our availability calendar.
Your benefit: You can see a clear listing of your room availability from any PC or smartphone. This also applies to all your team members (reception or sales team) and avoids the need to maintain multiple calendars.
Entering bookings directly from the our system
Bookings that arrive from your own MICE booking engine or from the MeetingMarket Marketplace are automatically entered into the availability calendar by the system. The booked room is then recognised by our system as blocked.
Entering external bookings
If you receive a booking in a different way (telephone, fax, alternative distribution partner), enter the occupied room(s) directly into the availability calendar.
A new event is simply created by clicking the “Add event” button.
