Denver, CO (PRWEB) October 10, 2007
Groople is proud to be honored as one of only 40 companies from across Colorado to represent the state's most innovative technology at the CSIA DEMOgala 2007 on October 11, 2007.
Groople has developed online technology that makes the process of planning, coordinating and booking group travel efficient and easy.
"Planning and booking a group trip is quite different than planning and booking an individual trip, which is why we created and built our company, Groople.com." says Mike Stacy, CEO. "At Groople we give our customers the power to easily create and customize their own group page, which they can use to communicate and collaborate with members of their group during the planning process of their trip as well as after their trip. We also give our customers the ability to share their trip with the public and to search actual group trips that others have taken. What better informational source is there when you're the one coordinating and planning that perfect group trip than looking at what other people have done for, say, their own family reunion or girlfriend getaway?"
When it comes time to book a trip, Groople customers not only have 60,000-plus hotels at their disposal, but they are also presented the results in a way that's meaningful to their specific type of group. Also, customers are provided with negotiated group rates from the leading hotel brands in the world and, in some cases, these rates are exclusive to Groople. In addition to hotels, Groople customers can take advantage of group car bookings through an exclusive relationship with Avis/Budget. Customers can also make air reservations for their groups.
Groople (http://www.groople.com) is a combination of the words GROups and peOPLE – GROOPLE...we understand groups and we provide the best planning and booking tools for any group. Headquartered in Centennial, Colorado, Groople was launched in 2004. For more than two years Groople, the leading group travel Website, has worked with thousands of people from a wide variety of groups and has come to understand that planning, searching and booking group travel arrangements should be a fun part of group travel. At Groople, we're working around the clock to negotiate the best rates for flights, hotels, cars and cruises and find the best locations to fit your group's needs. We provide booking capability on more than 60,000 hotels located on four continents, twenty-five islands and one mountain top. Through our social networking environment we allow travelers to collaborate and compare travel options before any decisions are made. After reserving a block of rooms, group members are welcome to pay for their rooms individually online or in one payment made by the group leader.
Groople allows groups to shop online with confidence through our low price guarantee. We search far and wide to provide free rooms, upgrades and other special amenities wherever your group qualifies.
