Spacily, a new platform that matches vacant meeting spaces with event planners and managers, has launched in London.

Founder Knut Gaskjenn says that he hopes the new product will save London's venues from the current economic downturn.

Gaskjenn said: “The London meetings and venue market has been struggling for a very long time – since the recession. We wanted to come up with a solution that helped venues to grow by unlocking underutilised spaces to combat the changes that are happening as a result of the uptake of virtual meetings.

“At the same time, we wanted to introduce simplicity to a time-consuming selection process for users. Face-to-face meetings matter as they facilitate the development of businesses through better and clearer communication. Meeting rooms are conversation starters, talking points and investing in people has never been more important. A handshake lasts longer in the mind than an email.”

Offering virtual show-arounds, price parity and booking advice, Spacily aims to bridge the supply of unused meeting rooms with the demand of mobile workers. It helps customers in discovering mid to high-end meeting rooms and booking them online and hopes to help planners sidestep the traditional hassle of making numerous phone calls. 

Spacily has put together a collection of hotels, private members' clubs and business centres with distinctive meeting rooms. There are currently almost 300 mid to high-end spaces listed on the website.
