Complimentary Services at the BCEC and Hynes You Need to Know About

This week on the blog, we’re excited to launch a new series focusing on the complimentary and value-added services available to your event at the BCEC or the Hynes.

The first installment centers on our one-of-a-kind Hotel Relations & Services Team, and the comprehensive destination services provided by the Greater Boston Convention & Visitors Bureau (GBCVB). Both are available free of charge to all citywide conventions.

Hotel Relations & Services

With over 35,000 hotel rooms, Boston has a hotel solution for any event of any size - from large, upscale properties to small boutiques, and budget options. But, securing hotel rooms for your event can be a full-time job unto itself. That’s why we have an exclusive Hotel Relations & Services Team that helps make your job easier. Your dedicated Hotel Relations Manager works in tandem with your Sales Manager and serves as your liaison to Boston’s hotel community, helping you to build the ideal room block for your event. It’s one point of contact, so you save time and money while we work to find the best housing solutions for your event.

Our Hotel Relations & Services Team will help you:

• Secure the citywide room blocks that address your needs
• Locate additional rooms if there’s overflow
• Build hotel packages that offer efficient transportation solutions
• Coordinate hotel site inspections
• Provide ongoing support to planners once the hotel package is established

Here is how it works in 5 easy steps:
