Note that you should consult the list of participating properties first (rather long).
Here are the rewards you can earn from this event promo:
It’s a win-win — rewards for you and your clients when you book a family reunion, destination wedding, global conference or special event at any of the more than 1,300 hotels and resorts participating in the SPG® program.
You earn a signing bonus of 1,000 Starpoints® for every 10 eligible room nights booked,up to a maximum of 100,000 Starpoints (certain limitations apply).
You earn matching rewards: 1 Starpoint for every US$3 of eligible group revenue, up to 20,000 Starpoints per contract — in addition to what your clients earn.
There is a separate SPG Pro promotion for bonus Starpoints for Travel Professionals that I wrote about yesterday (access here).
Seems that SPG Pro has two separate promotions going on for event organizers and perhaps you can choose which one better suits you
Here are the terms and conditions of this offer:
