As part of their ongoing commitment to helping their clients manage their travel programs, Gant Travel will offer Groupize Meetings as the new online solution for their accounts to source, book, track and manage simple meetings.
“Enhancing services to our clients continues to be a top priority at Gant Travel, and we are extremely excited to add Groupize Meetings as a self-service solution for our clients,” said Patrick Linnihan, President, and CEO of Gant Travel. “This strategic partnership with Groupize advances Gant Travel’s offering and enables us to provide our small and medium business clients with tools that were out of reach until now. Groupize Meetings is a natural extension of our Concur strategy with our customers. The Groupize Meetings disruptive pricing model makes these tools accessible to all of Gant Travel clients.”

Our goal was always to deliver Meetings solutions that worked for any size of business.”
