Producers, Managers
and Convenors

Twelve months ago the PCO Association established a Hotel Advisory Committee.

One of the committee’s objectives was to improve dialogue between PCO’s, Hotel Sales Teams and Hotel Revenue Managers and to work towards ways of improving the level of communication and standard of professionalism between all parties.

Over the course of Advisory meetings many discussions took place on the issues Hotels and PCO’s face when contracting business.

With the collaboration of both parties a RFP (Request for Proposal) document was designed and is now available exclusively to PCO Association members by logging onto the members section of the PCO Association website

Mary Sparksman, one of the PCO Association councillors has been trialling the RFP document over the past month. Mary said, “not only has the document simplified her requests for proposals, the positive feedback from the hotels has been extremely encouraging”.

Barry Neame, President of the PCO Association said “based on Mary Sparksman’s feedback, all PCOA Councillors will be encouraging their staff and our members to trial the RFP document”.
