MeetingPackage.com boast over 250,000 meeting rooms available through its platform around the world

Helsinki, Finland, Nov-1-2017 — /EuropaWire/ — MeetingPackage.com, the global marketplace for booking meeting rooms and packages, announced today the opening of yet a new location in the heart of Madrid, showcasing its rapid growth process after recently adding several offices across Europe.

In charge of the Spanish operations will be Olli Kariniemi, Sales Director and experienced MICE professional in the Spanish destination management business. With the experience gathered since late 90’s within the region, Kariniemi is proven to be a perfect match for MeetingPackage.com.

“We here in Madrid want to be at the forefront of the development of our industry and see increased potential for booking national and international meetings online. MeetingPackage.com was a perfect match and as it is one of the fastest growing marketplaces for booking meeting rooms. They have validated the customer need already in over 40 countries and are looking to build a presence now in Spain. We saw this as a huge possibility, and we are happy to grow together and make this happen”, says Kariniemi.

Lately, MeetingPackage.com has also been in the news as being the first global marketplace to offer direct integration with Oracle’s Opera Sales & Catering system. Used by a majority of the hotels worldwide, users of MeetingPackage.com can soon book their offsite meeting spaces directly online with transparent pricing and availability at any time.

“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.

For MeetingPackage.com, the move is more than simply opening a new office in Madrid. It is also about the unique cooperation which will see significant benefits for corporate buyers, meeting bookers and meeting venues alike. MeetingPackage.com is set to become the most popular marketplace to book meeting rooms globally by 2020.

Luther King House offers two types of discount for those who would like to book one of their meeting and conference facilities. On the one hand, for meetings of over 9 days, delegates can enjoy a 15% discount. On the other hand, a special 20% discount rate is offered (for any number of attendees) for all registered charities and member bodies of the Luther King House Educational Trust.

Choice of Venue

Planning a company retreat or business conference is no easy task. While these types of events form the perfect opportunity to disengage from the urgent and start thinking about the important, it takes work for them to be successful. Successful company retreats strike a balance between the different activities and include challenges to energise and engage the team.

If you are organising a company retreat, you must be aware that it is vital to make sure that the team’s energy levels and focus are maximised throughout. Choosing the right venue can help your team maintain this energy and focus. It can also provide a relaxing and stimulating environment for the work while being comfortable so that everyone feels at home. Luther King House has hosted countless company events such as lectures, conferences, business meetings and company retreats – it can offer you a variety of facilities for your individual needs. Since some events require attendees to stay overnight, the institution has put together the residential delegate package that addresses both venue and accommodation.
