Wyndham Hotels and Resorts has launched its Wyndham Event Rewards program in China, offering up to one million Wyndham Rewards frequent traveler points to meeting professionals who book events at any of its Wyndham properties globally, as well as double rewards for events booked and held at any of the brand’s Wyndham hotels in China.

Meeting planners and travel agents can earn 10 Wyndham Rewards points for each US$1 spent, from a minimum of US$2,500 to a maximum of US$100,000, on master-billed guest rooms as well as group food and beverage functions and meeting room rentals. Earned points, up to one million per event, can be redeemed for hundreds of gift reward options including hotel stays, premium entertainment merchandise, vacations and more.

From 1 December 2010, through 28 February 2011, meeting professionals can earn double reward points through Wyndham Event Rewards – 20 Wyndham Rewards points per US$1 spent – for every meeting booked in any of the brand’s Wyndham Hotel or Wyndham Grand Collection locations in China including Shanghai, Hangzhou, Changsha, Chengdu and Xiamen.

The program has been expanded in China as a result of the brand’s extensive growth in the country over the past year. The first Wyndham property in China, Wyndham Xiamen, opened in 2009. The chain now has six Wyndham branded properties currently open and another six under development in China.

“The Wyndham brand is rapidly expanding across the globe,” said Kitty Huang, Vice President of Global Sales Asia Pacific, Wyndham Hotel Group. “We want meeting planners who book Wyndham hotels to have the ability to redeem rewards on a variety of premium items while planning their events. Now, with the newly launched Wyndham Event Rewards program in China, we are able to provide even more value and further reward our customers with double points for planning their events with us.”

Wyndham Rewards, the brand’s loyalty program, has more than eight million active members. Wyndham Rewards points can be redeemed for hotel stays, airline tickets, name-brand merchandise and dining and shopping gift cards, among other options. In lieu of points, members may elect to earn airline or rail miles with a variety of carriers.

Guest room charges must be included on a master bill to qualify toward the total event purchase. Points will be awarded based on actual group room nights consumed during the event, regardless of the contracted amount. Multiday events on a single contract will constitute a single event for rewards purposes. Blackout dates and some restrictions may apply.
