Starwood Offering Triple Starpoints For Meeting Planners

 Starwood Hotels & Resorts has announced that meeting and event planners can earn triple Starpoints and a Booking Bonus of 1,000 Starpoints when booking at multiple Starwood properties across the Asia Pacific region.

Valid for meetings held between November 2010 to mid-February 2011, those enrolled in the Starwood Preferred Planner program receive a booking bonus of 1,000 Starpoints for every 25 rooms booked, given at the time of booking. Additionally, meeting planners can earn triple Starpoints with no limit, so the larger the group and rooms booked the more points are earned.

Starpoints may be used as meeting credits for future meetings. The first 15,000 Starpoints are worth a US$200 credit, with each additional 7,500 Starpoints worth a US$150 credit.

As a further incentive, meeting and event planners that book prior to December 31, 2010 will earn a two-night stay at any new Starwood Asia Pacific hotel (opening dates between October 2009 and December 2010).

"This is a fantastic offer for meeting and event planners enrolled in our Starwood Preferred Planner program," said Alison Taylor, vice president of sales for Starwood Hotels & Resorts, Asia Pacific. "This incentive can both lower the cost for future meetings as well as earn planners an exciting personal stay choosing from one of our 1000 properties worldwide."
