Meetings Incentive Provides Boost to Hotel and Motel Industry
The provincial government, in partnership with the New Brunswick Hotel Association and the Tourism Industry Association of New Brunswick, has developed a program to support the hotel and motel industry by encouraging an increase in business bookings
The Meeting Incentive Program will provide a 20% discount for bookings that meet specific criteria, for business-related travel and for related expenditures of up to $5,000 per booking for eligible expenses, including meeting rooms, food and audio-visual equipment.
Our hotel and motel industries contribute to the economic recovery, financial stability and growth of our province. The Meetings Incentive Program will stimulate corporate travel, help rebuild the meetings and conventions market and provide operators with additional support to get back on their feet post pandemic.
“This incentive has come at an ideal time as restrictions are lifting, business meetings are able to take place in-person and our province is eager for a return to normal,” said Sara Holyoke, Delta Fredericton’s general manager and co-chair of the New Brunswick Hotel Association. “The accommodation industry is very pleased to work with the provincial government on this initiative and we look forward to safely welcoming business groups to hotels and motels across the province.”
