Rapid growth is enabled by top-notch technology and corporate functionalities such as online reporting, online availability and market-leading response time to booking requests. And it’s not just small meetings that are being booked through MeetingPackage.com. Customers have already organized 500-700 attendee conferences using the platform.
“MeetingPackage.com focuses on excellent customer experience in both online and offline environments. Online availability is one of the key functionalities to enable further growth and increase the customer satisfaction even more”, says Ahola proudly.
Joonas Ahola won the AmCham EU Youth Entrepreneurship Award in November 2016. This was further proof of the viability of the innovative business idea of MeetingPackage.com, and an endorsement for the team’s dedicated execution on the company’s ambitious plans so far.
“It’s pedal-to-the-metal time”, says Joonas Ahola, CEO and Founder of MeetingPackage.com. “Bringing the combination of meeting room bookings and the related service package bookings online is a lucrative business, and there’s competition out there, of course. However, none of the players is dominating the market yet. Our goal is to become a global business and be among the top three players in this field by 2020”, Ahola says.
Industry’s normal hit rate for venues from booking enquiry to confirmed meeting is below 10%. MeetingPackage.com’s metrics shows that while booking online leads over 100% better hit rate in the UK. The venues who have a contract with MeetingPackage.com and visible prices online achieve a confirmation rate as high as 75%. Therefore, MeetingPackage.com is on a mission to reduce the amount of unnecessary enquiries, which are killing the industry.

The company has a truly global vision, and a genuine opportunity to successfully compete in the international marketplace”, says Markko Vaarnas, Managing Partner of Takeoff Partners and Chairman of the Board of MeetingPackage.com.
