AccorHotels rolls out the Passkey solution to simplify the day-to-day work of Meeting Planners

AccorHotels announces a partnership with Cvent – the market leader in corporate event management – aimed at rolling out Passkey, the online event hosting management solution.

With the Passkey solution, AccorHotels is making a mini-site available free of charge to Meeting Planners. From this mini-site dedicated to each of their events, they will be able to:

  • Manage their reservation volume based on detailed reports
  • Easily input their “rooming list” without the requirement for any involvement by participants

The booking procedure is also simplified for participants thanks to the following features:

  • A user-friendly and intuitive reservation interface;
  • All the information on a given event stored in a single location.


This solution will initially be available for 100 hotels located across the Group’s key markets. Passkey will eventually be extended to cover all hotels whose busy events schedules make using the solution a must.

By responding to the need of Meetings & Events organizers for simplification, this partnership is in line with AccorHotels’ commitment to providing the most innovative solutions on the market to its business customers.
