To help support the recovery of the San Antonio hotel market, meeting room technology firm weframe has partnered with Hilton Palacio del Rio, Embassy Suites by Hilton San Antonio Landmark and Embassy Suites by Hilton San Antonio Airport to offer its weframe One technology. Weframe One is a next-generation meeting room technology that replaces projectors, monitors, flip charts, whiteboards, sticky notes and more with one cloud-based solution. It is also revenue generating, meaning hotels and other meeting spaces don’t pay for the device itself, but offer it to customers through a pay-per-use model. “We are excited to collaborate with weframe at our Hilton Palacio del Rio, Embassy Suites by Hilton San Antonio Landmark and Embassy Suites by Hilton San Antonio Airport properties in Texas,” says Brian Getman in a statement, vice president of sales and revenue for Zachry Hospitality, which manages the Hilton hotels in San Antonio. “Providing our clients with a hybrid meeting solution will bridge the desire for traditional in-person meetings with the ability to incorporate today’s need for a virtual one.  Face-to-face business meetings have never been more flexible.”

When executed safely, in-person meetings and events are possible. But it’s been tough for meeting planners across the nation, due to differing state-by-state and even county-by-county guidelines. In some areas, meetings and events returned a while ago, but for others, it’s hard to imagine what planning a meeting would be like. In an effort to show the latter how to hold safe business gatherings when restrictions loosen, the Meetings Mean Business Coalition (MMBC) launched their Meet Safe platform as a resource for other planners to reference when planning future in-person meetings.
