7 April 2015 | 0
Venue-boking portal Meetingsbooker.com has expanded its operations in Dublin this week following a €1 million funding round.
The company recently doubled its workforce by hiring 11 new employees and expects to have a total of 35 full-time staff by the end of 2015.
“We are delighted to be expanding our operations here in Dublin,” said CEO Ciaran Delaney. “We launched a new booking engine on our site in January, and this has led to our conversion rates increasing by up to 150%. The next step is rolling out our three-stage website re-development plan and a new platform which will make our site available in six languages.”
Meetingsbooker.com expects to facilitate over 500,000 searches for conference and meeting venues around the world this year.
The company’s cloud-based software allows meeting organisers to send venues their event requirements and receive competitive offers, which they can book directly through the site.
The site also offers unique content by creating short one-minute videos showcasing the conference and meeting space of key venue partners.
