Marriott to inspire meeting planners with its own ‘Pinterest of meetings’


Marriott is shifting its mobile focus to a new group of potential clients via a site rife with inspiring imagery, quizzes and helpful tips designed to entice event planners to book a venue for their next fete, showcasing the importance of tailored content.
