HELSINKI, Finland, 2018-Jan-31 — /Travel PR News/ — MeetingPackage.com announced the launch of their unique Booking Engine for Meetings & Events. The Booking Engine makes selling meeting rooms and services online a reality and has already proven to increase exponentially confirmation ratio from RFP to confirmed booking.
Through the Booking Engine, meeting venues and hoteliers will be able to handle ten times the volume of regular enquiries per day. Additionally, the Booking Engine offers transparent prices and a much higher conversion rate, over 70% higher through their own hotel website, compared to traditional RFP’s. Venues will enjoy a faster and more efficient sales process, avoiding any waste of time with unnecessary RFP’s and therefore any risk of losing potential customers.
Furthermore, MeetingPackage.com is giving venues for the first time the possibility to sell meeting spaces in real time. The level of automatization and online availability is dictated by the venues themselves. Hotels will also have access to a comprehensive sales and catering tool, allowing them to sell and manage F&B items and other services through the catalogue.
“The Booking Engine gives us a comprehensive system to manage our online booking for meeting rooms from our website. Our meeting spaces are displayed in a compelling way with high-quality images and detailed info so that customers can clearly see what facilities are available. The set-up steps are simple and quick to make as well. Thanks to the support of the MeetingPackage.com team, we are now fully integrating the Booking Engine into our system”, says Anabell Gillespie, corporate sales manager of Malone Hotel Lodge Belfast.
MeetingPackage.com’s Booking Engine is a state of the art customizable widget, which is very easy to insert to the venues’ own website. The Booking Engine will naturally blend in with the overall design of the venue website and corporate style, offering an enhanced customer experience with zero payable commission from direct bookings.
“We have been partnering up with MeetingPackage.com with our presence in their marketplace and recently also with the addition of a Booking Engine available on our website. As an independent hotel, we must work harder to find new ways to offer customers state of the art services and solutions. We want to differentiate with our services and offer the latest digital solutions”, says Päivi Laine, CEO at Hotel Haaga Central Park.
MeetingPackage.com is set to become the most popular tool to manage meeting rooms and services globally by 2020. The company has also successfully been offering the direct integration with Oracle’s Opera Sales & Catering system. Used by a majority of the hotels worldwide, users can soon book their offsite meeting spaces directly online with transparent pricing and availability at any time.
