Global hospitality group, Millennium Hotels & Resorts (MHR) has launched a brand-new corporate bookings product, Millennium for Business, a new digital programme for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), enabling them to manage team travel with flexibility and ease.
Millennium for Business offers an online booking experience that is integrated with the recently relaunched My Millennium Guest Reward Programme. The service, with its social sign-on and central dashboard, allows the business to manage travel, make itinerary style bookings, cater to team members’ needs and earn rewards. All bookings benefit from the updated Best Rate Promise which helps the business maximise budgets; the service also gives travel managers access to insights and reporting tools.
MHR collaborated with the SME travel industry to design the benefits on offer to Millennium for Business users and guests such as regular room upgrades, 15% off on all dining and events, early check-in and late check-out, and access to club or executive lounge. This new programme is available across all of MHR’s hotels in Asia, Europe, Middle East and the US. London, Paris, New York, Beijing, Los Angeles, Singapore and other destinations are on offer to the SMEs for combining business and leisure trips, an up-and-coming trend seen within travel.
Of the new product, SVP of Digital, Distribution & Revenue Strategy, Nayan Peshkar, said “SME travel managers told us that travel technology usage is both pervasive and individual at the same time, therefore wanting a service that personalised corporate travel, though also needing it to be secure and fitting into their travel policies. Millennium for Business is a product that empowers SMEs as the key target booker, having seen how under-represented they are in the business travel sector. This purely digital platform makes travel procurement efficient, secure and simple.”
