Amex Meetings & Events launches platform for sourcing small meetings

Press Release

American Express Meetings & Events (M&E), a division of American Express Global Business Travel (GBT), today announced the launch of Meetings Express. The platform provides users with a single global interface for sourcing small, simple and recurring meetings. To provide the most relevant local content, Meetings Express is supported by carefully selected third-party technology providers in different regions.

Users can work with these providers: Groupize in North America; in the United Kingdom and Nordics; Bizmeeting in France; meetago in Germany and iVvy in Australia directly through this single interface. Each has been vetted to ensure they combine the right hotels, venues and meetings’ spaces with the best possible user experience.

“Client demand for service in the small, simple meetings segment is significant, yet until now no one has addressed it globally,” said Issa Jouaneh, senior vice president and general manager, American Express Meetings & Events.

“Meetings Express helps meeting owners achieve their goals with consistent global service and relevant local content, supporting the creation of the best possible attendee experience,” he added.

Meetings Express is serviced by the American Express Meetings & Events team, whose aim is to help meetings arrangers align small and simple meetings strategies with existing programs, and to promote policy compliance. This includes the same professional sourcing, contracting and supplier knowledge that clients have come to expect from American Express Meetings & Events.

Meetings Express connects to American Express M&E’s centralized data platform, Meetings Insights, and integrates with American Express M&E’s reporting and management tools, providing customers with broader insights across their meetings portfolio.
