called the Meetings Benchmark Tracker (MBT) and uses mystery
shopping methodology to rate how well individual meeting venues and
hotels handle enquiries for meetings and events. This covers the
entire end-to-end client enquiry experience, from the quality of
the sales team to the follow up processes in place.
QHotels' Managing Director,

another VenueVerdict award. Being named the best for event sales
enquiries really shows that our dedication to customer service runs
through the entire business.
"We're passionate about providing
outstanding service and our teams work hard to ensure all events
held at QHotels exceed expectations. Our QHotels team of
highly skilled individuals are equipped and trained to convert
enquiries in a professional, helpful and transparent manner."
