The platform called Meetings Express sources relevant local content from Groupize in North America, MettingsBooker.com in the UK and Nordics, Bizmeeting in France, meetago in Germany and iVvy in Australia.
Each provider has been vetted to ensure they combine the right hotels, venues and meetings’ spaces with the best user experience.
“Client demand for service in the small, simple meetings segment is significant, yet until now no one has addressed it globally,” says Issa Jouaneh, Senior Vice President and General Manager, American Express Meetings & Events.
“Meetings Express helps meeting owners achieve their goals with consistent global service and relevant local content, supporting the creation of the best possible attendee experience,” he adds.
The M&E team aims to help arrangers align small and simple meetings strategies with existing programmes promoting policy compliance.
Meetings Express connects to AMEX M&E’s central data platform, Meetings Insights and integrates with AMEX M&E’s reporting and management tools.
