Thank you Swissdiver for your request
I means a web site in which can i make a research to find news about contries and business places like congress centers, seminar rooms like this guide http://www.bedouk.com/destination-guide but it’s not evident this one.19 Sep 2011
Just checked bedouk to understand what you might be looking for. First on bedouk, while it looks interesting at first sight, it is not really. Their “destination guide” on Geneva for instance is appalling (they write German and Italian are also the “national languages”, they miss the local public holidays, …)! When it comes to list the venues, I don’t see any great idea. But I guess they will charge a commission to any hotel a user send a RFP to, a commission the user will ultimately pay…
I usually use either hotel chains or, for smaller meetings, Regus (a bit expensive but in general pretty good). While looking for something else, the tourist office website of many cities is usually very helpful. Back to the Geneva example, they provide you with a detailed list of all the possible venues… And this is really free!
Hope this helps20 Sep 2011
