On June 5, Wyndham Rewards revealed a new loyalty partnership with Caesars Entertainment and its Total Rewards program. The partnership will allow members of each program to receive complimentary status matches, with more rewards to come later this summer, which is the first time any partner of Total Rewards has done status matches.

It will specifically allow Wyndham Rewards members to book Total Rewards destinations through the Wyndham Hotel Group, earn and redeem points at these Total Rewards locations in the U.S. and Canada, transfer points between Total Rewards and Wyndham Rewards, and bid on hotel, restaurant and entertainment experiences.

Both Wyndham Rewards and Caesars Entertainment's Total Rewards are thrilled about the partnership.

“For the last two years, we’ve been unrelenting in our efforts to build the world’s best rewards program, applying a laser-like focus to help our members experience travel where and how they want,” says Noah Brodsky, senior vice president of loyalty and engagement at Wyndham Hotel Group. “Whether it’s a hotel, a condo, a vacation home or now, a world-class resort like Caesars Palace, no other program offers their members the breadth, the simplicity or the generosity of Wyndham Rewards.”

Now, members of both programs can receive their complimentary status match by visiting www.wyndhamrewards.com/caesars. Members at different reward levels will be able to obtain the matching level in the other program, such as Platinum in Wyndham Rewards to Platinum in Total Rewards, Diamond in Wyndham Rewards to Diamond in Total Rewards. Finally, Total Rewards members at the Seven Stars level will match to Wyndham Rewards Diamond.

“Total Rewards continues to set the standard for loyalty within gaming and entertainment, and we’re always looking for likeminded partners to elevate member benefits,” says Michael Marino, senior vice president and chief experience officer, Caesars Entertainment. “With Wyndham Rewards, we’re giving our members access to an unparalleled portfolio of hotels, condos and homes and a fast track to elevated status with one of the world’s premier rewards programs.”

It’s always good to have market data for a glimpse at what’s happening in the meetings and events industry and know there are credentials for professionals to work toward. The Events Industry Council (EIC) has released its 2022 Q1 Global Business Events Barometer earlier this week and announced its inaugural class of CMP Fellows this spring.

 

Event planners often schedule meetings and events in natural places near wilderness areas, at waterfront resorts, and at mountain event spaces. But there are many ways to bring nature into your events by making use of the architectural concept of biophilic design, which can be defined as seeking to engage most people’s innate desires to affiliate with nature in the modern built environment. If you think of yourself as an “event architect,” you can use nature to stimulate the senses. 

 

It won’t be quite the same as ordering a pizza or nachos to be delivered to your front door but getting eats at venues is taking a leap toward convenience with a new collaboration: DoorDash has become ASM Global’s “On-Demand Delivery Platform” partner, launching at ASM Global’s top North American arenas, stadiums, theaters, and convention centers in the coming months. The partnership will allow attendees to skip traditional lines by leveraging DoorDash services to order within the arena for pickup.
