Bonvoy to fore At Marriott

With leisure travel at an all time high, and experiential travel being a strong motivator, travel agents were able to hear more about Marriott’s experiential rewards programme, Marriott Bonvoy, at the At Marriott event in Auckland recently.
Marriott International’s Ramesh Daryanani, VP global sales Asia Pacific, says the big trend that is inspiring families, couples and individuals to travel is experiences. ‘What we have done with Bonvoy is to make it more than just a hotel programme. We are making it more experiential where people can attend once-in-a-life-time experiences, for example, attending the Hong Kong Sevens in a suite,’ he says.

Loyalty a big focus for Marriott

Growing its loyalty programme membership base will be a big focus for Marriott in New Zealand when the programme merges into one platform on 1 August.

 

‘Members will have one ID number across the SPG, Marriott and Renaissance programmes,’ explains Ashley Hansen, area director of sales and distribution at Marriott International who was at the At Marriott roadshow in Auckland on Monday 28 May. ‘And it will be easy to swap points between brands.’ Loyalty programmes are increasingly influencing the way people book, he says. ‘And they help drive awareness of brands globally.’
