Passkey, a worldwide leader in online group reservations, announced the launch of EventExpressTM, one of the industry's first online group reservation systems designed specifically for hotels of all sizes, including major convention properties, luxury resorts and small downtown properties.

With EventExpress, any hotel can now build customized event-specific reservation Web sites for any of their events – whether a large national convention, a small corporate meeting or a family wedding – in under two minutes, while delivering all the tools necessary to ensure the success of the event.

"Traditionally, online reservation systems were deployed exclusively by high-end hotels which had the resources needed to deploy these solutions and leverage the value therein," said Greg Pesik, president and CEO of Passkey. "With EventExpress we have leveled the playing field by introducing a powerful and easy-to-use online reservation system that can be launched in minutes by any hotel and for any event."

Specific capabilities offered in Passkey's EventExpress include the following:

  • Customized event Web sites in less than two minutes: EventExpress significantly speeds up the process of creating online group reservation Web sites for hotels by using a vivid, one-page, highly interactive user interface and by automatically copying critical information from hotel profiles, including Web site graphics, room type information and templates.
  • Access to all of Passkey's features: With EventExpress, hotels and meeting planners have access to all of Passkey's unique and powerful features, including online access for both hotels and planners to real-time reports, Web reservations for group attendees, as well as direct integration with over 70 online event registration systems and all major PMS and CRS systems.
  • Passkey SmartAlertsTM: EventExpress provides hotels access to Passkey's SmartAlerts, an innovative e-mail alert system that automatically delivers vital event information to users at critical user-defined event milestones, ensuring optimal inventory utilization and revenue generation.

"The value proposition of EventExpress extends far beyond its ability to accommodate hotels and events of all sizes and its fast go-live capability," said Pesik. "Once the site is live, EventExpress gives customers a full suite of tools that let them streamline the entire registration process and monitor the event status in real time, ultimately ensuring consistent event success with minimal worry and maximum ease."
