Webinars Scheduled for June 30 and July 1

June 25, 2015
U.S. Communities, the League of California Cities®-sponsored cooperative purchasing program, is conducting two complimentary one-hour webinars to introduce its new Travel Services and Solutions cooperative contract.
 
Providing savings as well as technology tools to cities to better manage travel costs, the contract was awarded to HotelPlanner through a competitive solicitation process conducted by the lead public agency, city of Kansas City, Mo.

Through this contract, cities will have access to HotelPlanner’s world-class technology providing multiple benefits including:
  • Access the lowest rate at the time of booking with the ability to search across multiple channels for hotel, flight and car rental;
  • Capture, control and minimize travel expenses with HotelPlanner’s cutting-edge technology;
  • No booking fees;
  • Emergency response housing program; and
  • Book groups, meetings and events with instant contracting. 
The contract start date is April 1, 2015 and has a three-year term, with the option to extend the contract for two additional periods of one year each.
