Marriott International will add new options in March for its hybrid meetings program, Connect with Confidence, which promises  to streamline the planning process for in-person/online events. The company has curated a list of providers, including Encore, Cvent, Convene, MeetingPlay and Hopin, that offer technology solutions for hosting hybrid meetings. New resources for hybrid meetings and events, including providers and pricing, will be available next month at Marriott hotels across the US and Canada, and are slated to be available globally in the near future.


Tammy Routh, senior vice president-global sales organizations, said meeting and event professionals are currently looking for insights and resources that will help them plan creative and innovative experiences for their customers regardless of whether they are in person at the hotel or logging in from their homes. Meeting and event professionals can work with these leading technology providers, she said, “to reach a larger audience and incorporate speakers from other locations as they continue to plan future meetings, conferences and events.”
