I coordinate corporate events and fly in 40 guests to Southern California about 3 times per month. I recently made the move to Marriott hotels and I am fairly new to the rewards. ( I was loyal to Hyatt properties for 15 years). I have a few questions:
1-The company I work for pays for our guests lodging. I receive a cap of 50,000 per event. Is the 50,000 negotiable? We typically spend about $25,000.00 per stay, which would equal to 75,000 points.
2- I receive rewards points through Rewarding Events, do my guests also receive points for their stay? Can I receive points for my stay in addition to the Rewarding Points?
3- Depending on my experience with Marriott I might renew the contract for next year. Any tips on negotiating the contract? Perks I might be able to negotiate etc..

I was informed that my guests don't get reward points because we pay for their stay. Like I mentioned before, I receive a cap of 50,000 points. We spend $25,000.00 per stay, let's calculate 25000 x's 10= 250,000 points, of which I ONLY get a cut of 100,000 which I split with a colleague. Where do the remainder 150,000 go? If this is the case, I will not be returning to the Marriott next year.
