CHICAGOApril 24, 2018 – BCD Meetings & Events (BCD M&E) launched Simple Meetings, a self-service system that allows users to choose where and how they book meetings, today.

“Simple Meetings gives users the power of choice when booking a meeting,” said Jeannie Griffin, VP, Product & Technology Solutions. “Our tool puts the booking power in their hands so they can source, within compliance, the meeting space and sleeping rooms that fit their unique needs. With Simple Meetings, the choice is theirs.”
