Groupize introduces the latest small group and meeting technology for TMC’s, corporate and meeting planners, organizations and hotels at the Global Business Travel Association (GBTA) Convention 2015, held in Orlando, FL, July 25-29th.
The cloud-based platform is now available and can be white labeled to TMC’s and organizations, facilitating the transacting of small groups and meetings online and mobile. The solution empowers group and meeting planners by offering real time rates and availability with the option to either book in real time or submit a request directly to the hotel.
Even though 80% of all meetings are unmanaged, and 2/3 are small meetings with less than fifty participants, the industry applies the same laborious processes of eRFP that have been applied to meetings of all sizes. This method is inefficient and frustrating for planners and hotels alike, with reports that it takes eight days on average to book even a simple meeting. Today’s tech savvy professional and occasional planners do not have that kind of time or patience.
Small meetings and day meetings are ideally suited for automation. The Groupize solution offers online merchandising for meeting space, layouts, meeting packages, booking elements, menus, a-la -carte F&B, as well as audio visual. Jointly, planners can also book sleeping rooms in real time and enjoy an improved shopping experience with easy access to all the itemized and total costs for their events.
“Groupize is excited to showcase the latest innovations and to exhibit at GBTA,” said Charles de Gaspe Beaubien, the company’s President, and CEO. “Groupize was first to market in automating sleeping rooms and is now at the forefront of meeting room automation. The industry is embracing solutions that enables them to grow small meetings and group business with less effort.”
Groupize will be participating as an exhibitor at GBTA Convention’s Exposition and will be demonstrating its small meetings and groups technology. Those attending the event are invited to visit booth #477 for more information and free e-books. GBTA is the largest annual gathering of business travel and meetings managers, meeting planners, procurement professionals and suppliers in the world with nearly 7,000 attendees participating in education, professional development, and networking opportunities.
