News in the Meetings & Events market

We’ve been keeping this secret for months, but we’re excited to finally announce UNITE: the first ever best-in-breed event tech semi-unconference.
What’s a semi-unconference, you ask? In addition to uniting the best people and the best tech, we’re pairing up the magic of the user-led unconference with the best parts of a traditional conference—namely, the inspiring speakers.
We know there are other a lot of other things competing for your time this summer—swatting flies, watching paint dry, all-in-one event tech conferences—but with leaders from Atlassian, Hubspot and other leading technology and marketing firms, UNITE should not be missed.
You’ll be sitting alongside the smartest event professionals in the world for an alchemy of awesomeness that includes keynote speakers, workshops, networking and an unconference, where you choose the topics!
The best part? This event will be offered totally FREE, but we have a limited amount of spaces, so RSVP soon.
July 26
At the LinQ in Last Vegas
Unite is hosted by the Event Tech Tribe, a collaborative ensemble of seven best-in-craft event tech companies.

Just how different are events around the world? Do social, political, cultural and environmental forces have an effect on the way events are designed and executed? And, knowing the answer is YES!!! - what are the insights and trends that we can apply back home?

If you're looking for new ideas, international inspiration or just keen to learn what's hot in Hamburg and fancy in France then this webinar is for you!

In our May event intelligence webinar we're going to look at 5 Trends specifically from the European meeting industry and find out how we can leverage them back home. Join Judith Huisman, Founder and CEO of Meetingselect - based in the Netherlands - for a tour of what's hot and what's, frankly, so 2017 in Europe across tech, design, production and engagement.

We can't wait to see you there! #eventtrends #eventintelligence 

The Netherlands Board of Tourism and Conventions has signed a strategic partnership with Meetingselect, which offers one of the most successful and largest corporate booking tools in the world.

From now on, meeting planners that visit the NBTC business platform to find a meeting venue or make a group reservation have direct access to the entire Meetingselect database. With the integration of this venue search tool, virtually all Dutch meeting venues can be found in one place. During a search, preferred partners of the NBTC are the first to come forward.

NBTC Holland Marketing is responsible for branding and marketing the Netherlands on a national and international level. One of the objectives of NBTC Holland Marketing is to put the Netherlands on the map as an attractive destination for business meetings and conferences. Many international event & meeting planners use NBTC's platform for finding group accommodations and meeting venues in the Netherlands. Thanks to a smart, technical integration with the Meetingselect database, in which virtually all hotels, conference center and meeting venues in the Netherlands can be found, the scope of venues that NBTC can offer meeting planners is now complete. Through the platform, meeting planners also have access to the many additional meeting services that Meetingselect offers. Last week, during the IMEX in Frankfurt, the partnership was signed.

Added value
"We wanted to have a complete overview of all Dutch meeting venues as an extra service to offer international meeting planners that visit our business platform," says Eric J.A.M. Bakermans, Director of Marketing Meetings, Conventions & Events of NBTC. "That’s why we decided to join forces with Meetingselect, as they simply have the best venue sourcing system in the Netherlands and beyond. Moreover, it works twofold: on the one hand we provide access to the complete Dutch meeting market as meeting planners can use the database via our platform. On the other hand, we offer our preferred partners the additional service that they are the first to pop up during a relevant search. Especially for hotels, congress centers, city marketing offices and DMCs that operate internationally, that is a clear added value."

Extra volume
Judith Huisman, managing director Meetingselect: "We are honored that the Netherlands Board of Tourism and Conventions has chosen Meetingselect's online venue sourcing and meeting booking tool. The NBTC works with highly valued partners with whom Meetingselect also has a close relationship, so that reinforces each other. Meeting planners who visit the Meetings & Conventions website of the NBTC can now search and book congress and meeting venues anywhere in the Netherlands. Via our smart interface and API solution for CVB’s we can send extra volume to the NBTC's preferred partners. These preferred venues can be recognized by the well-known logo of the orange tulip.”
