Prospecting in the MINT Database

For empowerMINT Subscribers

MINT is a DMO exclusive providing access to a database with over 40,000 meetings from 20,000 organizations, it is the most comprehensive meetings database available.  DMOs can provide their sales teams with countless opportunities to search and query for more intelligent prospecting, which will ultimately translate to better customer relationships and more room nights.  

The information contained in the MINT database is strengthened each day by additional bookings and histories from over 150 dedicated convention and visitors bureaus.  This is an “owner operated” system which requires commitment, but the rewards are abundant!  Plus, 50% of the meetings in the database have less than 200 rooms on peak nights, making it a valuable resource for your DMO regardless of size.   

In this webinar learn how to harness the information in this powerful system for your DMO.
