Frequently Asked Questions


Can ORIGIN work with any hotel in the world?

Absolutely! Just because we're based in Boston doesn't mean we only serve Boston organizations. ORIGIN will work in almost any location and will secure hotels anywhere in the world for your next event, while still delivering the same unparalleled cost savings and service.


Will ORIGIN help if we just need a hotel room block with no meeting required?

Of course.! The simple process remains the same. In most cases you'll actually have more hotels to choose from. We can also help with social room blocks, such as family reunions and weddings. The only requirement to use ORIGIN is the need for a minimum of 10 guest rooms per night.


Will the hotel raise their rates to include ORIGIN's fee?

Never! All the details are fully transparent in the hotel contract. We will walk through everything with you and answer any questions way before signing any hotel documents. 

Hotels pay us from their marketing budgets. They would much rather pay a small fee to get definite business than spend a ridiculous amount of money on an additional social media campaign or magazine advertisement, with no guaranteed return on investment. 

ORIGIN Meetings is accredited by IATAN

Make sure you're working with an accredited partner! There are many 3rd party organizations that don't meet the strict industry standards to receive IATA accreditation. This means they are not a hotel trusted entity and will be extremely limited in what they can offer.
