Thanks to a partnership between two meeting and technology leaders, meeting planners, especially those who manage smaller meetings, can tap into leading edge mobile-friendly booking for their attendees. The benefit is increased ease of booking and possible increases in participation. It will also help these meeting planners compare rates and services that will result in lower costs and higher profitability.
EventSphere, a leading meeting-planning firm has joined forces with Groupize, the industry’s most innovative group-travel technology provider, to offer EventSphere clients a new real-time solution to source, book and manage small meetings and events online.
The intuitive solution enables event and meeting planners to use the cloud-based, mobile-friendly booking engine, and leverages all of the benefits that EventSphere brings its clients, including premier hotel relationships, preferred rates, special pricing and personalized services. Powered by Groupize, the custom-branded web application automates manual tasks and offers tools to simplify processes, including citywide sourcing, site selection, food and beverage requirements and booking website development. Planners can compare bids, communicate and manage contracts from one user-friendly platform that provides online attendee management capabilities and the ability to track past, present and future meetings or events.
“There has been a growing need for a small event product that provides housing options for meetings that don’t need a full housing program,” said EventSphere CEO Todd Lambert. “The depth of experience that Groupize brings to the table will enable us to deliver enhanced capabilities to our clients. EventSphere and Groupize are both pioneers in customized groups and meetings solutions, and together our partnership will help EventSphere raise the bar in the industry. We look forward to the positive impact that this new collaboration will bring.”
EventSphere, specializing in housing and meetings fulfillment, continues to build momentum in the meetings and events industry, serving a diverse mix of corporate and nonprofit clients around the globe. The company has recently been chosen to manage housing for the 2016 Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia.
“EventSphere is the the leading go-to meeting- and event-planning solution for organizations of all sizes and we are proud to be working with them to bring innovation to the company’s clients,” said Groupize COO Alisa de Gaspe Beaubien. “Together our companies are committed to providing the best services and technology, and we are confident that partnering with Groupize will give EventSphere an unmatched competitive edge.”
