2020 Connectivity Programme extended into next year
It’s been an unprecedented year of change and adjustment for the travel industry, with the impact of COVID-19 felt across all our ways of working and doing business. We know this has been difficult for all our Connectivity partners, and would like to thank you for the hard work you’ve put in supporting connected properties around the world.
Continue to earn points during Q1 2021
As you may know, the 2020 Connectivity Partner Programme will be extended through the first quarter of 2021, until the end of March. This additional quarter will give you and your teams the opportunity to earn additional points to reach the Premier tier.
From 1 January until 15 March, strategic initiatives will run in three of our Partner Programme pillars: Business Value, Property Performance and Products & Quality. You will be able to earn up to 700 points, and can find all the details on how to do this in the extension guide.
All Connectivity partners are automatically enrolled in the 2020 programme extension, so you don’t need to worry about opting in. After 15 March, we will spend the last two weeks of the month assessing your performance and closing the 2020 Partner Programme. Your final tier for the 2020 programme will be communicated to you during the first week of April.
Keep up to date with your progression
The Partner Programme tab in the Partner Portal will be under maintenance during Q1 2021, while we prepare for the 2021 Partner Programme launch in April. To help keep you informed on your performance during this period we’ll share updates on our scaled channels and your Partner Business Managers are always available to guide you on your progression.
Stay tuned, as we will be hosting a webinar at the end of January to share tips and tricks on earning programme points to reach a higher tier before we close the extension. We will also be giving insights on our 2021 Partner Programme.
Make sure to read the extension guide and find opportunities to unlock performance in the Partner Programme.
