World-first, revolutionary meeting planners’ platform launches in Australia

cievents today announced the launch of its world-first online platform, cimeetings, a new product set to revolutionise the corporate events planning industry.

Flight Centre Travel Group’s other corporate brands (FCM and Corporate Traveller) will offer cimeetings to customers as an innovative solution for better management and visibility across total travel, conference, and event (T, C & E) spend.

In an exclusive partnership with iVvy, the live corporate meetings management platform will streamline the entire meetings planning process, providing complete visibility over spend and saving significant time for planners and procurement managers alike.

cievents will launch the platform in Australia next month, to then be rolled out globally. cimeetings will give event planners the opportunity to review thousands of hotel and meeting venue options including date availability, location, room capacity, room configurations, food and beverage packages and audio-visual facilities, all in real-time.

Simone Seiler, General Manager of cimeetings says, "Our ability to offer live functionality resolves many challenges meeting planners face on a daily basis, enabling decisions to be made in real time in the one place, giving planners total control and complete peace of mind.”

The live functionality is a world-first, and not currently commercially available on any other platform. cimeetings’ unique software solution can search and secure event venues and suppliers, compare prices and enable bookings all in the one place. All booking requests are processed instantly with the option to pay later. Live, detailed reporting is readily available on all bookings, driving immediate benefits for busy procurement managers, all on one secure platform.

Lauren Hall, Founder and CEO, iVvy says, “Through our relationship with the cievents team, we have been able to launch a first to market, game-changing solution in the corporate meetings industry. Creating a live marketplace will create huge time savings, streamlining every component of meetings management from venue management to bookings, complemented with full transparency and live, real-time reporting.

“Tasks that can normally take 6 weeks, are reduced to just 6 minutes,” she added.

There are no limits to the type or size of meeting that can be booked on the platform, from a corporate cocktail function or an intimate board meeting, to a multi-million dollar exhibition for thousands – all with a simple click.
