Cvent planners will be able to instantly book small meetings with more than 6,000 hotels and venues worldwide that use Meeting Package, a multi-award-winning automation software for meetings and events sales.

The two travel and hospitality technology companies announced their partnership to give Cvent customers the ability to book small meetings with hotels and venues that are leveraging Meeting Package. The integration, which is expected to launch later this year, will allow Cvent Supplier Network customers to book participating Meeting Package hotels and venues globally directly on the Cvent platform.
According to a press release, the partnership will deliver benefits on both sides of the meeting and event sales process.

  • Event planners: Planners around the world that leverage Cvent to source their group hotels and venues and manage their events, will be able to book meeting space and services at any hotel or venue that leverages Meeting Package. The integration also addresses key sourcing questions instantly without planners needing to speak with a sales representative, including: Is the room available? Does it have the services I require for my meeting? And is it in my budget?
  • Hotels and venues: Meeting Package hotels and venues will benefit from considerably improved efficiencies and broader reach and engagement through the Cvent Supplier Network, one of the largest venue sourcing marketplaces in the world. More than $18 billion was sourced through Cvent’s sourcing networks in 2019 (pre-pandemic).
  • Through the Meeting Package product suite, venues and hotels can manage all their meetings and event sales, offline or online, direct or indirect. The software integrates with leading operational software solutions such as Oracle Opera or Amadeus Delphi. For smaller hotels and unique venues, Meeting Package can be used as a self-service standalone software.
  • By leveraging the Cvent and Meeting Package integration, small or simple meetings can be automated, allowing for hotel and venue sales teams to focus on tailor made proposals for the larger, more complex events.

“We’re excited to partner with Cvent and launch this global integration between our two platforms,” said Joonas Ahola, CEO and Founder of Meeting Package. “The subject of process automation and digitisation has really come to the fore as venues realise that manual processes have become unsustainable. This integration facilitates greater automation for a more seamless venue sourcing process, ultimately helping both the hotelier and event planner increase group business revenue with minimal effort.”

Jim Abramson, Cvent Vice President of Product Management commented on the partnership, “We’re thrilled to announce this integration with Meeting Package, which benefits our mutual customers around the world. As a leader in the hospitality technology space, we’re proud to partner with leading organisations like Meeting Package to expand our platform and enable deeper collaboration between meeting planners and hotels and venues.”

Meeting Package software is already in use by venues in over 100 countries, and it’s powering the booking journey for many well-known hotel chains such as Radisson Hotel Group, Nordic Choice Hotels, Clermont Hotel Group and Leonardo Hotels.
