Continuing to make connections and large-scale events easier, Hilton Worldwide invites meetings professionals to check-in to the cloud.

The hotelier has announced the deployment of getplanningTM - an interactive planning platform created by experienced meeting professionals - to its portfolio of Connect+ properties globally. Using secure cloud-based technology, getplanning allows planners to connect with hotel staff, vendors and partners in real-time, making event management easier and keeping everyone on the same page.  
 
"We're always listening to meeting professionals around the world as we evolve our tools and services to deliver successful events for them and their clients," said Mark Komine senior vice president, sales Americas, Hilton Worldwide. "We believe strongly in the value of personal relationships and this platform enables planners to stay connected to everyone involved in their event."
