Venue booking software, Meetingselect is to become the seventh member of event technology ecosystem, Event Tech Tribe.
Established in 2007, Meetingselect is currently recognised as the world's largest independent meetings distribution system and online venue booking tool. Based in the Netherlands, the company will be integrated with all existing Tribe products as a part of an expanding suite of integrated solutions.
Meetingselect co-founder and tech entrepreneur, Judith Huisman, said: “We’re 100 per cent committed to creating the newest technology in our niche, but we spend a great deal of time building deep relationships and direct connections with our venue partners.
“Our long history in the hospitality industry means we understand planner and marketer requirements innately, and love to help them solve what’s typically their first challenge, sourcing the best venue.”
The Event Tech Tribe rose in popularity in 2017 and is now working with more than 500 customers.
“Building everything and trying to be all things to all people is not the future of software in general,” said founding Tribe leader, Leonora Valvo of Swoogo.
She added: “We’ve always felt that planners shouldn’t have to compromise on tech just to get systems that work well together—or navigate complex platforms to create integrations themselves. Having a world class venue booking tool like Meetingselect in our tech stack further rounds out the offer for planners wanting options outside of the old school all-in-one tools.”
