Karisma’s new incentive is good for GREWPS

MIAMI — Karisma Hotels & Resorts’ new promotion for groups – or rather, ‘GREWPS’ (groups, reunions, events, weddings, play, social) – offers one free room for every six paid plus a US$250 resort credit, for a limited time.

“Creating custom events for groups is an integral part of Karisma Hotels & Resorts’ success and we’re excited to introduce new incentives for the deserving partners focused on this important segment,” said Faith Wishnie, Executive Director of Wedding Services, Karisma Hotels & Resorts.

“We are increasingly focused on introducing our Gourmet Inclusive Experience to groups of every size from weddings and family reunions to corporate retreats, large and small. Following the recent launch of new tools and programs, it’s a terrific next step to now reward agents and meeting planners who are making Karisma’s properties top destinations for groups and meetings alike.”

Once the six rooms of weeklong travel are confirmed, the extra room and resort credit can be carried over for additional client use or personal redeeming for a Karisma Hotels & Resorts experience, including wine, spa, candlelit dinners and private events.

The promotion is valid for bookings until Aug. 31, 2016 for travel Jan. 3, 2017 – Dec. 22, 2017. The GREWPS promotion can be combined with several additional savings incentives including up to $1,000 in client savings, the Pick Your Perks program, complimentary private banquet events, complimentary wedding packages and a maximum of 21% commission per booking.

The GREWPS promotion arrives on the heels of Karisma’s recently introduced tools affording customers, meeting planners and travel agents a variety of effective ways to optimize the vacations booking process including MICE fact sheets, digital banquet kits and customized themed events.

The MICE fact sheets offer overviews on each property and specific details on every aspect of the resort. The digital banquet kits allow for meeting planners to present a variety of up to 39 customizable preset menus allowing guests to easily select or create their own delectable menu for their desired banquet or party.

Additionally, the themed events tool can be used for groups to create a variety of experiences ranging from True Mexico: A Team Building Experience, featuring team-building excursions into the natural beauty of Mexico, to Gourmet Inclusive Fiesta Nights, including themed party packages ranging from Circus Royale to Route 66 that are focused on an evening of fun, covering all the details from DJs to décor.
