VENUREDIRECTORY.COM PARTNERS WITH KIVA SOLUTIONS TO MODERNISE THE WAY EVENT PLANNERS BOOK VENUES
venuedirectory.com and Kiva Solutions have entered into a strategic partnership in an effort to modernise the way events and meetings are booked in the UK.
venuedirectory.com, an industry leader serving up in-depth venue information to the UK MICE industry, is adding Kiva Solutions’ instant booking technology to allow for an online, end-to-end solution in real-time.
The new partnership will accelerate the adoption of online booking for meeting spaces as venues, agencies and buyers are stepping up the demand for instant booking solutions that save time and resources.
venuedirectory.com is the largest venue data supplier with 26 years of experience and over 350000 venues in 179 countries.
Michael Begley, managing director said: “We estimate that nearly three quarters of events in the UK welcome 30 delegates or fewer and these smaller meetings will benefit from the increased choice that a broad-based distribution system will bring, and we are delighted to be working with Kiva Solutions to enable this for our agents and venue partners.”
Kiva Solutions is a young innovative company that has built a unique connectivity system for venues to distribute their meeting space inventory simultaneously through multiple channels.
Kiva Solutions Gurpreet (Gee) Mann said: “Life should be uncomplicated, which is why we obsess with distribution. The meetings industry is the least flexible and most overly complex sector of travel and hospitality. We see an opportunity to connect everyone, making inventory accessible to anyone, anywhere, anytime and our partnership with venuedirectory.computs us in the best place for this to happen quickly.”
