Meet the team

Wizme is a rounded and grounded business. We work hard to deliver relevant technology with key aims of streamlining the meetings sourcing, option handling and booking processes that have for so long been done manually or poorly automated.

We think we have fixed many of the Meeting and Event sectors problems because we have been there as a meeting planner, as an intermediary and as a venue. We have understood the pains and gaps that older systems have attempted to service and predicted evolving customer needs, and from that “know how”, built Wizme.
