IRVING, TX—Spire Hospitality, a nationally recognized third-party hotel management company owned by AWH Partners, a privately held real estate investment firm headquartered in New York, has introduced the M.E.E.T. program to assist meeting planners with successfully coordinating and safely hosting meetings and events amid the COVID-19 pandemic, which brought the in-person meetings and events industry to a complete standstill earlier in the year.
“We believe meetings and events will play a critical role in the return of both the hospitality industry and our economy at large,” said Dawna Comeaux, EVP/COO of Spire Hospitality. “Spire’s M.E.E.T. program mitigates risk for meeting planners by offering flexible hotel contracts and ensuring social distancing protocols, cleaning and disinfecting guidelines, and corporate sanitation procedures are properly followed.”
M.E.E.T, which stands for Meet, Effortless, Eliminate Risk, Travel, is now available at Spire’s 24 properties, all of which can be found in 17 states. Each hotel in Spire’s portfolio follows state, federal and brand guidelines to ensure clean and safe events for attendees and has its own specialized event package offerings for meeting planners. Additionally, as part of the M.E.E.T. program, attrition and cancellation fees are waived for all new event agreements actualized through June 30, 2021.
