EventBlocks – Hotel Booking for Conference Travel

Ed: Might be useful but not earth-shattering. Makes the process of getting a hotel or group booking reasonably close to a convention a bit easier. All the events appeared to be US based only but a pretty comprehensive list (though few IT related events, mostly medical)

Not clear there is a lot of value here over any of the other travel sites, unless they work out to be substantially cheaper than group bookings, on that basis alone you would give it a try for US based events.

Startup Name EventBlocks
What problem are you solving? From our extensive research, we’ve found that the ‘group rates’ advertised by many large events are seldom the best option available. We’ve been able to find a cheaper hotel rate within walking distance at over 90% of events in major cities
What is your solution? EventBlocks lets users easily compare nearby hotel options from multiple sources, including group rates not listed on other sites, to find the best room at the lowest price.
