Welcome to the future of meetings
At Kiva, we firmly believe there are better ways of selling meeting spaces. A quicker, more efficient and cheaper process is at the centre of our thinking.
Life should be less complicated, which is why we obsess with distribution. The meetings industry is the least understood and most overly complex sector of travel and hospitality. We see an opportunity to connect everyone (yes, even our competition), making inventory accessible to anyone, anywhere, anytime.
Our mission is to be the connector for the Meetings Industry.
The Birth of Kiva Solutions
Kiva started out in early 2014 when our CEO, Gee Mann was trying to source venues for his events management company. While trying to book a prestigious London hotel on behalf of one his clients, he was unable to book the venue as his company was not a preferred supplier. Then, a preferred supplier at the hotel tried to sell the same space to Gee at a premium. Gee couldn’t understand how the hotels were passing off extra revenue to resellers and missing the opportunity to connect directly with their clients.
This was the beginning of the end for the events management company and the birth of Kiva.
Since that day, we have:
- Launched our small group meetings self-booking tool
- Launched our real-time booking solutions to travel management companies and agencies
- Been shortlisted for the Travel Disrupt awards at Travel Technology Europe
- Been certified as an Oracle hospitality partner
We are now a Software as a Service technology partner for hotels and bookers to provide instant booking of meetings and events.
