The information and advice you need, when you need it. 

When you choose Orchid, you will be assigned a dedicated team led by an experienced Account Manager who acts as your main point of contact during the housing management process. Your team will combine resources to advise you on strategies for hotel room block management. They will oversee the reservation process and work closely with contracted hotels to make sure each of your attendees are well served. 




Sub-Block Management

Sub-Block Mang.

Simplify the most challenging aspect of housing management – sub-blocks.

Sub-blocks are designated sections of a hotel’s room block that can be created to accommodate special groups including exhibitors, VIPs, speakers, and staff.

Orchid works with you to identify the specific sub-block needs for your event and makes recommendations to flawlessly execute this critical area of housing management.

Our home-grown Online Room Block Request Tool has proven helpful in managing some of the most important event attendees.

Post Event:

When your event is over, we conduct a post-event audit to ensure every booked room gets counted. We want you to have an accurate report card and get credit for the appropriate financial concessions.

We obtain all final pickup information from event hotels and create a detailed final housing report including the audit results, “wash factor,” number of reservations by booking method, pace reports, etc. We review this information with you in a post conference call to review the housing process and offer suggestions to optimize future meetings.
