    My wife received the above - I have xxx'd out a few details - is it legit? The being asked to "perform tasks on the test site " has her worried about phishing.

    Difficult to say, you should know, have you ever opted in for research @ Starwood? When in doubt call them!;)

    If you or your spouse do participate, I hope you will emphasize the importance of having a group room booking website that works for different browsers including Google Chrome and that doesn't time out, as well as being connected to spg.com in a way that one can pull up meeting reservations details in a way that is consistent with other spg.com bookings and does not require one to re-enter basic information. <sorry for the small rant, but this annoys me and makes me reluctant to go through the group room blocks>

    I am looking for a place for a meeting and used the site to search for a venue and found several errors in just a few minutes. Definitely a work in progress.

    Looks like a legitimate invitation to a focus group.

    If they need additional assistance, we certainly have some willing participants. I used to be a SPP, but I don't think that I am currently registered as one.

    Although I registered some time ago, I’ve never been approached. :eek:
