EproDirect Creates a Free Covid-19 Hotel Status Directory for Hotels Worldwide

USA, Boca Raton, Florida. April 21, 2020

EproDirect has again reiterated their goal to support the hospitality industry, to have the best possible experience with the launch of their Free COVID-19 Directory for hotels worldwide. The online directory is aimed at providing meeting planners and travelers with the most updated status of hotels in different parts of the world, which will be shared with EproDirect's community of over 80,000 meeting and event planners and travel counselors.

The goal is to make it easier and more effective for meeting planners to plan for meetings and events with both immediate needs, as well as future needs, especially amidst the COVID-19 threat. The directory has been dubbed by meeting planners and travel counselors as, "The most essential resource during this time".

The directory can be found here: https://www.eprodirect.com/covid-19-hotel-status-directory/

The Novel COVID-19 has continued to wreak havoc in several countries across the globe, with the WHO declaring the virus a pandemic due to its widespread impact with more than a million people already infected by the virus. Consequently, governments in different parts of the world have taken measures to curb the spread of the virus with such measures including lockdowns and restrictions in the gathering of people. It has become extremely difficult for people to go about their daily activities including meetings.

Event and meeting planners have also found it difficult to adequately and effectively put together meetings due to the complexities of knowing if the hotels are accepting group business RFP's and also knowing the appropriate contacts based on layoffs and furloughs. This is where EproDirect is looking to be of great help again to the hospitality industry with the launch of the free COVID-19 Directory for hotels.

The online directory offers hotels not only the opportunity to increase their exposure, but also helps bridge the gap between suppliers and meeting planners. The user-friendly directory allows users to have their hotel open/closed status and also if they are currently accepting RFPs for current and future needs, as well as contact info.

Hotel Group Meetings: Spirit of Innovation


Naturally, the Hotel Group Meeting business has been rocked during the Covid-19 pandemic, and the effects may be felt for years to come. But according to planners, there is pent-up demand for hotels to resume this area of their business and savvy hoteliers are being exceptionally creative in making that possible. The key is successfully implementing all recommended safety guidelines. For example, in addition to social and physical distancing, some planners are utilizing assigned seating as a way to keep people from using multiple seats and tables throughout an event. Some planners have also initiated a color-coded bracelet system that indicates the wearer's confidence level about being physically approached. Hybrid meetings are also increasingly popular, where some attendees join in person and others are looped in virtually. Other hotels have instituted a "bubble" approach, dedicating an entire wing to smaller groups, essentially walling them off from any health risks outside their area. The September Hotel Business Review will report on what some hotels are doing to address these concerns so that the group meeting business can safely resume.
