A tech-focused meetings and events agency has been launched to help clients navigate venue procurement and event management.

Select Event Solutions has been founded by former MeetingRooms.com duo Clare de Brett and Caleb Parker and aims to use tech to enhance delegate engagement. 

De Brett has recruited former MeetingRooms CEO and colleague Parker after launching the agency, which will be based in London.

She said: “As event planners, we have to ask why we’re having the event in the first place. What’s going to make it a success? I believe successful events are measured by attendee engagement. Did they learn, connect and feel stimulated? Today technology enables us to deliver better events where delegates are engaged before, during and after an event takes place. That’s what our agency will deliver to clients.”

Parker, also the HBAA (formerly the Hotel Booking Agents Association) technology and innovation chair, will be tasked with developing Select’s event technology partner network.

“Clare has what it takes to develop winning client relationships and create a successful agency. I like her vision and look forward to supporting her,” he added.
