Leonardo Hotels UK & Ireland (formerly Jurys Inn) has launched a new online booking service for meeting rooms with MeetingPackage, a meetings and events sales automation and channel management software. The new partnership provides hotel customers the ability to book meetings and events services directly from the hotel website.
Andy Besent, head of sales at Leonardo Hotels UK & Ireland, said, “The development of our new Instant Meetings service, powered by MeetingPackage, will allow us to completely transform the customer experience and make the entire booking journey much simpler than ever before. We know that customers who book meeting rooms, either direct or via third party partners, are looking for a simple and seamless booking journey, and launching our new Instant Meetings service will allow us to meet these needs.
“Since using the product we’ve already seen a significant number of benefits to both our customers and hotel operations teams, especially when it comes to increasing speed and efficiency, and I would like to thank Joonas Ahola and his team at MeetingPackage for their support and patience in delivering such a complex project.”
MeetingPackage software is already in use by venues in over 120 countries and it’s powering the booking journey for many well-known hotel chains. This partnership is a big step towards MeetingPackage's goal of connecting over 100k venues to instant booking by 2025.
