• Kempinski Hotels offer ‘Inspiring Events’ deal for groups

    POSTED July 11, 2019

Because of its success, Kempinski Hotels, Europe’s oldest luxury hotel group, is again offering ‘Inspiring Events.’ Included are increased commission levels and the possibility of up to two complimentary rooms during the booked event. This deal is valid when a second event is confirmed within 90 days.  

“Taking care of the event planner is crucial,” says Sullivan Sananikone, director of sales & marketing. “That is why we are positioning the journey of the meeting planner at the heart of our Kempinski Meetings & Events offer.” 

Valuable upgrades are possible for planners. The Kempinski Discovery Platinum tier is offered for planners who spend a minimum of EUR 15,000 per event, and the Kempinski Discovery Black tier is for planners spending a minimum of EUR 30,000 per event. These exclusive rewards come with an on-site butler, one complimentary room for every 30 paid (up to a maximum of four complimentary rooms per group), a locally themed culinary experience, and a credit for any event contracted 60 days prior to the starting date. 

“At some of our operated hotels, meetings and events are representing 25% to 30% of the revenue and we strongly believe we can increase our share,” Sanaanikone says. “Kempinski hopes to become the standard in luxury hospitality when it comes to organizing an upscale event.” 

Piazza della Famiglia, a new outdoor event venue, joins San Diego’s Little Italy with a grand 10,000-square-foot European-style piazza. The Italian-inspired venue spans one city block and is sure to charm with its views of the San Diego Bay and 25-foot tiled fountain with up-lighting.
