iVvy released a new meeting space booking tool for venues and hotels. Planners can use enhanced self-serve capabilities to better plan and manage their events with no delays, requests for proposals, phone calls or emails. The intuitive solution is designed to improve the entire online booking experience for planners while enabling the venue to maximize its profitability through meetings and events.

Venues and hotels using iVvy software can set their own rules and show their meeting space and food-and-beverage availability to specific event planners and booker types (such as corporate planners or travel agents) logged into the iVvy system. This streamlines the lower-value meeting bookings that may otherwise be a burden to fulfill. This also means more control for the booker because they now can compare rooms and decide which room to host their meeting from, depending on its availability and price. 

“Online booking is on the rise for the meetings space and meetings themselves are trending towards smaller, less complicated events,” iVvy CEO Lauren Hall said in a statement. “Venue spaces now recognize that small meetings can make for big business. However, much like larger meetings, planners expect a fast turnaround and attentive service regardless of the size of the meeting. We know from client feedback that hoteliers and venue operators are seeking out digital tools to optimize their smaller events and spaces to free up staff to focus on higher-value engagements. Our new meeting booking tool is designed to simplify the meeting booking process while driving conversions and profitability for the venue operator.”
