Groupize Partners with Convene to Add World-Class Venue Listings to Meetings Management Platform

Groupize, who has 150,000 hotels globally, is now launching alternative venue choices for meetings and events.

OSTON, MA, (July 31, 2020) – Groupize, who has expanded to offer restaurants, hospitality venues, workspaces, and hotels with private dining announced today a strategic alliance with Convene to provide corporate planners direct access to a list of Convene venues across major U.S. cities and London into its innovative meeting management platform.

Client meetings, training sessions, and executive off-sites are still a critical part of business, and small meetings have already started to rebound first. This means that planners need to accommodate a range of unique and flexible spaces to host their events. Convene designs and services premium places to work, meet, and host inspiring events for organizations looking for an elevated experience.

“Due to the pandemic, we are seeing a growing demand from our enterprise customers who are looking to reduce their real estate footprint,” explains Alisa De Gaspe Beaubien, CEO of Groupize. “Internal meeting space is a premium, and companies need options for employees to meet locally. Our partnership with Convene will open up a wide range of alternative world-class venues for planners, and the fact Convene’s meeting spots are not hotel offerings delivers many benefits.”

Groupize already offers 2,500 venues and expects to provide 10,000 venues in the next months. Groupize also uploads additional venues based on customer demand and required lists by markets.

“We’re excited to be a part of the Groupize network,” says Amy Pooser, Global Chief Operating and Chief People Officer at Convene. “Similar to Convene, Groupize focuses on making the meeting and event planning process simple and straightforward through the integration of technology. We’re proud to have our premium locations accessible to people searching for locations to host corporate meetings and events, big and small, and seamlessly broadcast them out to remote attendees around the world.”

Groupize is recognized for delivering an easy to use and affordable SaaS platform which offers the entry point for corporations to manage expense, travel, and risk for all meetings and events. The innovative meetings management technology empowers all employees within an organization to handle events in one centralized solution, delivering consistent enterprise workflows allowing for compliant venue shopping and booking, attendee management, travel and logistics, reporting, budgeting, and collaboration.

“We are committed to reinventing event management with easy to use tools that simplify all processed in the lifecycle of a corporate event, creating better outcomes for all stakeholders,” adds Alisa. “We turn the difficult into simple, make the unknown known, and put an end to tedious tasks while controlling the largest area of unmanaged spend in a corporation.”

Groupize is supporting companies restarting their programs by offering a “First-Year Free” promotion to select companies committing to a four-year engagement by September 18, 2020.
