Marriott Rewards has a Rewarding Events program for meeting and event planners. They get points for arranging meetings and events at Marriott properties. All hotel chains have similar programs and I have been planning to write about them.
Now, Marriott has made some changes to the terms and conditions of the program that mainly affect Meeting Planners that work with government paid and funded events.
Marriott has clarified to a great length what constitutes non-eligible event for government paid events.
Also, Gaylord hotels have been added to the list of eligible properties and Marriott Executive Apartments to the list of non-eligible ones. Resort fees have been added to a list of non-eligible charges.
Marriott Rewards goes to a great length trying to clarify these non-eligible events that are government (not necessarily US government) funded.
