Thank you for registering with MPbid (MPBID.COM). MPbid was designed to simplify and accelerate the site-selection process for meeting planners (including Third Party Consultants) and hotels. A modified exchange process is the environment utilized. To allow for efficiencies, MPbid has created two (2) different exchange sites. "The Meeting Exchange" allows a planner to offer meetings and hotels to bid on those meetings. "The Hotel Rooms Exchange" allows a hotel representative to offer hotel rooms and planners to email their interest directly to the hotel. (For more information on the Exchange sites, please See "How Exchanges Work").
Below we have outlined the Terms and Conditions applicable to a hotel's use of MPbid. Your Registration will signify the hotel's acceptance of these Terms and Conditions, which may be changed from time to time.
Registration for a Hotel Representative - This is for an individual who is employed by a hotel who has the authority to enter into and negotiate contractual agreements on behalf of the hotel. In order to guarantee that there are no duplicate transactions in MPbid, only one individual per hotel property is allowed to be a registered representative. MPbid reserves the right to cancel a user's membership for violation of these Terms and Conditions.
Agent of Record. By utilizing MPbid, the hotel is authorizing MPbid to act as a site selection agent for these transactions. If the hotel contracts for any of the meetings disclosed through MPbid, the hotel agrees to register MPbid as the only agent of record for the contracted meeting, regardless of whether the meeting is or could have been booked without the use of MPbid.
Venue - MPbid acts as a venue for hotels and planners to offer and bid on hotel rooms in the meeting industry. Although we review and approve all users of MPbid, we cannot guarantee the authenticity of other registered users. We cannot ensure that a bid or offer will result in a transaction.
Release and Indemnification - Because MPbid is not involved in the resulting contract between the parties, it does not guarantee and makes no representations or warranties of any kind, express or implied, as to the quality of the services that the hotel provides nor the ability of the planner (or third party) to make payment for services. In the event of any dispute that may arise between the parties, you and the hotel release MPbid (and its officers, employees, directors and agents) from any and all claims, demands or damages related to such dispute. The hotel agrees to indemnify, defend and hold MPbid harmless from and against any and all claims, damages, costs, and expenses, including attorneys fees, arising from or related to its use of MPbid.
