“Hotels and venues have been battling for years to get higher occupancy rates to meeting rooms. One key problem has been slow and complicated sales processes where a customer has to send multiple emails and to make multiple calls to book a meeting room. Hotels have understood that we are here to help them to make their sales process faster and more efficient, so they don't lose time on unnecessary RFP's and therefore lose potential customers. This makes it truly easier for both stakeholders, the venues and the customers alike”, says Joonas Ahola, CEO & Founder of MeetingPackage.com.
MeetingPackage.com is proud to welcome the Czech team and sees this as a unique opportunity to grow further internationally. The Czech market has been starving for such a platform, and with this cooperation, MeetingPackage.com is one step closer to their vision of being the most used marketplace to book meeting rooms globally by 2020.
