Site for unused hotel room pickup now official

Back in June I posted about the MeCo (Meetings Community) adding a new functionality to its site, and now it's official: As today's press release says, "planner members who find themselves with unused room blocks, due to either cancellation or diminished attendance, will now be able to post their unused-room availability to the MeCo website so other planners have the opportunity to pick-up the shortfall.

"Messages posted are automatically available to more than 2,100 meeting and event professionals who make up the membership of the

MeCo Google Group."

You do have to be a member, but then again, membership is free. This is such a great idea; I hope people use it.
