The Airbnb for creative meeting spaces is coming to Sweden

THE Danish marketplace for creative spaces Gaest.com is now launching in Sweden. With its Airbnb-inspired concept, Gaest.com makes it easy to discover and book spaces for meetings and workshops as well as product launches and PR events - all bookable by the hour without any phone calls. It also makes it easy for companies to rent out their free meeting rooms.

With just a few clicks you can now quickly and conveniently book a meeting space without having to ask for quotations or wait in days for replies. The service has existed in Denmark since 2017 where its a huge success with both traditional meeting rooms and more exciting spaces such as a houseboat and an old bridge operators tower.

– Booking a space for an event, seminar, or simply a meeting often requires planning, numerous contacts and time-consuming requests for quotations. Gaest.com allows you to spend your time and energy on creating good and meaningful meetings instead. Weve been very well received in Denmark, so its great to be up and running in several Swedish cities, so far focusing on Stockholm, Göteborg and Malmö, says Anders Mogensen, CEO and co-founder of Gaest.com.

Gaest.com has observed a change in how and where we work. Smaller and bigger companies alike are focusing more on employee efficiency and creativity, and this requires easy access to creative spaces for meetings, workshops, seminars and so forth. Another clear trend is freelancing, where you often need temporary spaces for meeting with customers.

– We at Generator, just like Gaest.com, understands the value of digital efficiency. We live in a world where things are happening here and now, in real time, and the modern client does not have time for long and inefficient correspondence when it comes to bookings. Gaest.com is the answer to these problems. It feels like the future is here already, says Erika Danell, Sales & Meetings Manager at Generator Stockholm.

Gaest.com allows you to book meeting spaces which do not necessarily belong to a hotel or conference center, and the service allows companies to rent out their available meeting rooms.
