Marriott’s Convention & Resort Network launched a new website and message, “Not Just Bigger–BETTER.” The site is designed to help in site selection among the network’s 62 member properties across the U.S., Mexico and Caribbean.

“Marriott’s Convention & Resort Network recently conducted comprehensive customer interviews to identify the process used by meeting planners as they search for the ideal venue for large events,” said Mike Wainwright, vice president of sales, Marriott’s CRN. “In response we have relaunched our digital platform to make it easier for planners to use, by providing stronger tools such as preselected hotel search groupings and narrated site visit videos. We understand that it’s difficult for planners to spend time on long site selection trips, so our goal is to provide a platform that easily links planners to our industry’s leading brands, most desired destinations and greatest distribution.”

New features include quick links to eight different pre-selected search groupings and Site Visit videos, which are short videos that share facts, floorplans and images, and are narrated by a representative on-property.
