New Solution to Help Organizations with the Digital Transformation of Travel, Events and Expense Management
Groupize, one of the industry’s most innovative all-in-one platforms for enterprise-wide meeting and event management, is proud to expand its partnership to enable an SAP Concur solution extension Concur Event Management by Groupize.
Groupize has pioneered self-service online booking tools (OBTs) for events and meetings. This new solution extension is part of a timely alliance with the SAP Concur organization. The collaboration provides tremendous value to customers and partners using SAP Concur technology, including travel management companies (TMCs). Groupize will continue to operate independently, with no changes to company ownership or structure that will impact customers, travel partners, or operations.

“SAP Concur adds event management powered by Groupize to centralize & simplify the meeting and event planning process.”
The Groupize partnership with the SAP Concur organization opens the door to a growing event technology market. This segment has seen an explosion of investment, spearheaded by Cvent, recently announcing its intent to go public at a valuation of $5.3 billion, and $7.75 billion, raising more than $1 billion in just two years.
“We are thrilled to align ourselves with SAP Concur, a visionary brand, and dominant sales organization,” explains Alisa de Gaspe Beaubien, CEO of Groupize. “This launch could not have come at a better time as more and more organizations look to technology-enabled transformations for automating processes, mitigating risk, and controlling unmanaged spend. As travel and meetings converge, companies are consolidating their tech stacks and investing in event modernization to drive engagement and measure ROI. With over 800 new event technology brands emerging over the last year and a half, the SAP Concur partnership further validates our vision of delivering easy-to-use OBTs to centralize and simplify meetings and events.”
