Cendyn's MeetingLouisville.com Sells Louisville, KY for Meetings/Conventions, Increasing Revenue for Participating Venues and Hotels
Recently Launched Website Gives Meeting Planners Option to Book Multiple Properties
Features Cendyn incorporated into MeetingLouisville.com include:
- Meeting Planner Toolkit with facts, photos/videos, transportation, promotion, testimonials, itineraries

- Community calendar/list of citywide events

To drive traffic to the website, Cendyn designed a page offering a $5 Starbucks gift card to the first 500 users who submitted RFPs. Additionally, one user was chosen to win a $1,000 Visa gift card.
Since Cendyn launched MeetingLouisville.com, the website has delivered exceptional results, including having over an 85% new visitor rating over the last four months, and it continues to drive business to all venues and hotels featured.
"We have been very impressed with Cendyn's professionalism and superior industry know-how," said Rita Stephenson-Reedy, Corporate Marketing Director for the Al J. Schneider Company which operates the Galt House Hotel and Crowne Plaza Louisville Airport. "The final result was exactly what we were looking for in a meeting and convention focused website."
"We designed MeetingLouisville.com to be a win-win for all parties involved," said Cendyn President Charles Deyo. "Unique in that it is not driven by one facility, the website is an extraordinary revenue generator for all venues and hotels featured."
