cimeetings offers planners real time venue and supplier booking tool
Coinciding with Global Meetings Industry Day, almost 150 gathered for an update on trends in the meetings and event industry by cievents general manager Simone Seiler and experience a live demonstration of the cimeetings platform by general manager sales & operations Guy Fisher.
cimeetings offers event planners the opportunity to review hotel and meeting venue options including date availability, location, room capacity, room configurations, food and beverage packages and audio-visual facilities, all in real-time.
Using the platform event organisers can search and secure event venues and suppliers, compare prices and enable bookings all in the one place. All booking requests are processed instantly with the option to pay later. Live, detailed reporting is readily available on all bookings, driving immediate benefits for busy procurement managers, all on one secure platform.
An exclusive partnership sees the Australian Venue Co. Group’s national portfolio of restaurants, bars and dedicated event spaces featured on the platform.
“A live marketplace will drive significant productivity gains, streamlining all components of venue sourcing, complemented with real-time reporting and financial visibility and management,” said Seiler. “This leaves more time for event professionals to generate that sought-after ‘return on experience’.”
