Groople has announced the opening of Groople Europe, the company’s first international office headquartered in Paris, France. Groople is also opening a 30,000 square foot Denver office to replace their smaller facility at 6436 South Racine Circle.
Led by Managing Director Todd Kramer, Groople is targeting the estimated $300 billion global group travel market. To meet the demand of US groups wanting overseas hotels and to tap the growing number of European online leisure reservations (rising at twice the rate of US online leisure bookings), Groople will aggressively expand the company’s international hotel inventory.
“Groople’s new US facility and Europe office are a result of growing the business to meet the demands of both our customers and employees,” said Groople Chief Executive Officer David Loy. “Our rapid, planned expansion will ensure Groople remains a leader in the group travel space by building the largest group travel operation of its kind, far and above our competitors.”
Groople has also recently announced partnerships with Travelocity, Cendant Hotels, Best Western and La Quinta Hotels, providing real-time group rates for thousands of the properties available through the Groople website and call center.
Groople will soon launch new group capabilities for air, car, cruise and rail.
