Finnish meeting space booking platform MeetingPackage has raised 1.5 million euros to speed up international growth.

Closed in late 2018, the funding round was led by existing and new investors, including Falkensteiner Ventures.

MeetingPackage helps its customers to take meeting space bookings online, and its new products include a booking engine that hotels and meeting venues can use to replace contact and offline enquiry forms.

“Even though the customers were requesting the possibility of booking meeting rooms online, the hotels and event venues weren’t ready for that yet,” said Joonas Ahola, founder and CEO of MeetingPackage. “We understood that we need to help the hotels more in the core of their own operations.”

“We help the hotels and event venues to sell meeting rooms online from their own channels, as well as offer more control and ease of access to global distribution and broader customer base,” Ahola continued.

MeetingPackage was founded in 2014 and, according to the company, its multilingual platform is used by thousands of hotel customers and over 500 distribution partners today.
