How To Use The Leads System
One of the primary focuses of Visit Portland is to promote the Greater Portland region as a primary destination for Conventions, Meetings, Events, Sports, Reunions, and Weddings. Our group marketing team spends countless hours at tradeshows and on the phone with planners working to bring their group or event to Maine.
The Group Marketing Department offers planners a FREE, one-stop, service. Planners are able to make one phone call to us, provide us with all their requirements and we post the lead for you to capture the business.
ACCESSING THE LEADS ONLINE
Login to the leads system (you will need your account password). Note: Access requires your personal work email address.
You will then get to a page that will allow you to access leads based on your partnership level. If you are unable to enter, please contact our Group Marketing department for further assistance.
At the top of the page you will see the date the lead came in and the name and email address of who issued the lead. Next comes the organization, the name of the event and the contact information for the planner. Action requested will let you know how to proceed. Sometimes leads come in two parts. Be sure to print all pages!
A separate section under the leads portion of the website is the Booked Calendar. This calendar is updated monthly and will show all events coming into Maine with overnight rooms with the planner’s contact information. Feel free to follow up with these planners regarding services needed for their upcoming events. You can also view and print Lead Reports, Booking Reports, etc.
