EventSphere, the Atlanta-based full-service housing and meetings fulfillment company, announced that Passkey's GroupMAXTM application will be used as the centerpiece of its technology platform to provide meeting planners with some of the most advanced event management capabilities available.

Launched in June 2010, EventSphere's mission is to provide the best combination of travel services and technologies to specifically meet the needs of each individual client. Supported by a team with extensive expertise in the hospitality and convention planning industries, the company brings a fresh perspective to the meeting process and promotes the strategies required to maximize a client's bottom line.

"We spent quite a bit of time looking at technologies that would enhance our ability to service our customers at the highest levels," says Todd Lambert, president and CEO of EventSphere. "Passkey was the clear choice. Although we are major proponents of the human experience, we recognize the relevance of having the precise technological tools, united with our service platform and expert level associates to help support our client's strategic and financial goals."

EventSphere will offer the full range of GroupMAX functionality to its clients. Attendees, speakers and exhibitors will experience the convenience of booking their hotel reservations through an event-centric booking engine, while planners receive the power of an advanced set of online tools to track and optimize their events via visual dashboards, e-mail alerts and detailed reports.

With GroupMAX's scalable technology, EventSphere is able to manage any size or complexity of event on behalf of its clients with equal competence and ease, from simple single property meetings to major conventions. Unlike many other systems that use fee-based GDS reservations connectivity, GroupMAX provides EventSphere's clients with direct electronic connectivity to thousands of hotels to ensure that reservations are delivered instantly and securely, mitigating the costs of commissionable channels.

"Our partnership with EventSphere is another example of how well GroupMAX is being received by servicers of major meetings and conventions." states Greg Pesik, president and CEO of Passkey. "The combination of GroupMAX's sophisticated set of interactive event management solutions and EventSphere's team of meetings experts will surely result in transformative event experiences for attendees, meeting planners and venues."
