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 platform. 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 of meetingrooms.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.
