Elite Meetings International (EMI) and Noble House Hotels & Resorts announced today at IMEX a partnership that will implement the use of EMI’s cutting-edge SpeedRFP™ technology on the Seattle-based hotel ownership and management company’s corporate website, www.NobleHouseHotels.com, to facilitate all online requests for proposals.

A product of Elite Meetings International, SpeedRFP provides meeting, wedding and special event planners with an efficient, time-saving RFP management tool to solicit bids for group business to multiple venues – without having to rekey data. The system enables planners to enter their group's requirements just one time using SpeedRFP's standardized format, submit that information directly to any Noble House hotel or resort, and manage all responses in one place.


“We’ve been watching SpeedRFP evolve over the last two years and feel this will end up being the de facto standard for our industry,” said Sean Mullen, chief sales and marketing officer, Noble House Hotels & Resorts. “We’re pleased to begin integration, as we don’t think a better solution exists.”

Many hotel chains, destination management organizations and independent hotels have already benefited from using SpeedRFP on their websites, resulting in more than 33,000 buyers joining its worldwide network. Its three-forms-in-one design grants planners from the meetings, weddings and special events worlds the ability to use SpeedRFP. The resulting usage breaks down to 70 percent meetings/30 percent weddings and special events.

“With every hotel, chain and destination management organization we add, we’re building awareness within the industry of the incredible efficiencies gained by a SpeedRFP solution,” said Kelly Foy, CEO, Elite Meetings International. “It provides planners with a direct connection to the hotel or hotels of interest, and is absolutely free for them to use.”

Foy concludes, “For the hotels, it makes them accessible to the 33,000 community members of SpeedRFP, resulting in higher lead conversation rates across the board.”
