Vancouver, BC; September 09, 2019
Event software leaders Meetingmax and Aventri today announced they have completed the integration of their platforms. The integration connects the Meetingmax room block management and Aventri event registration systems. It eliminates the hassle of navigating separate systems. Event professionals streamline planning, while driving registration and increasing attendee satisfaction.
“We are proud to offer event planners a fully integrated registration and housing solution,” says Jeff Duncan, president and CEO of Meetingmax. “With this integration, they will be able to offer attendees a seamless registration and hotel booking experience. Using the integrated platforms, planners will exercise greater control over their inventory, improve pick-up rate and ultimately increase revenue.”
The integration enables event planners to easily identify attendees who have registered for an event – but not booked a room yet – and encourage them to do so. The result is an increase in pick-up rate and revenue. Planners no longer need to toggle back and forth between platforms. Real-time data sharing enables them to pull comprehensive reports in seconds that draw on data from both systems.
The Meetingmax/Aventri integration also gives planners greater control over inventory. They can customize the setup so only registered attendees can book within the hotel room block. What’s more, they can allow attendees to only see the sub-blocks designated for them and limit the number of rooms an attendee can book. In this way, the platform ensures all rooms in the block go to the right people.
For attendees, the integration means a smoother experience. Now they can easily go from registering for an event to booking accommodations without needing to enter their information twice. All attendee communication from the system has the same look and feel to avoid confusion and strengthen branding.
“We’re delighted to partner with a leader like Meetingmax,” says Michael Burns, CRO at Aventri. “Planners will enjoy a secure, easy-to-use, customizable platform to power meetings and events of all sizes. Among the advantages, our platform enables easy-to-pull, data-rich real-time reporting. Planners gain insights to improve event performance and deliver a more enjoyable, personalized attendee experience.”
The new integrated system is available for both new and existing customers of Meetingmax and Aventri with no additional set-up costs.
