“We are aggressively growing our global portfolio of meeting venues to meet the demand of the corporate sector,” said Caleb Parker, CEO of meetingroooms.com, “We’ve supported a few select corporate clients during our beta, but we’re just scratching the tip of the iceberg. We needed an experienced leader to take our products to the corporate market. Matt has a successful track record of developing and supporting the corporate clients of two well respected meeting room operators in the UK. We expect him to make an immediate impact and help us scale the number of corporate bookings we support”
meetingrooms.com launched in March of this year in private beta with venue partners in 30 countries.

The company will officially launch to end users in a series of global markets in the coming months
“I’m thrilled to join the meetingrooms.com team, and incredibly excited about the innovative corporate products we are are launching.” said Matt Makan, “Our industry has long needed an automated platform to streamline the procurement of meeting rooms. Companies large and small are increasing their use of external space, and we make it easier to do so by providing thousands of global choices right from one platform.”
meetingrooms.com is a global marketplace that allows customers to benefit from a global “one-stop-shop” and provides meeting room venues with an additional “pay on performance only” sales channel, to increase meeting room occupancy and revenue. The platform works by matching venue partner vacant meeting rooms with customer needs in real-time. As meeting rooms often sit empty, venue partners benefit by exposing their inventory to a wider customer base than they could on their own through the meetingrooms.com global distribution network. meetingrooms.com is powered by Search Office Space, which provides support by way of its infrastructure and a 20 year history of relationships with meeting room venues and customers alike. Both companies were founded by British entrepreneur, Richard Smith, who serves as President ofmeetingrooms.com and CEO of Search Office Space.
Bookable spaces consist of a variety of professionally appointed board rooms, conference rooms, interview and collaboration spaces, training and seminar rooms across a variety of venue categories such as: Executive Suites, Serviced Offices and Hotels.
