Glisser enters into a strategic partnership with American Express Global Business Travel

Bilateral Agreement Provides Glisser with Global Customer Success Resources and Offers Amex GBT a Highly Scalable and Customizable Virtual Meeting Platform

November 14, 2022 – NEW YORK & LONDON – Glisser, the enterprise technology platform for meetings and events, is pleased to announce the signing of a strategic partnership agreement with American Express Global Business Travel (Amex GBT), the world’s leading B2B travel platform.

Glisser will utilize the global resources of the Amex GBT team – which provides industry-leading software and support services to manage travel, expenses, meetings and events – to meet the ongoing needs of their global customer base. This currently includes organizations such as Pfizer, ASOS, Becker and the NHS.

Slide was founded in 2014 and originally focused on providing audience engagement technology for in-person meetings and events. In March 2020, it successfully pivoted into the burgeoning virtual event space in response to the global pandemic, and now provides enterprise-grade SaaS technology to cover the full spectrum of event formats. Glisser’s platform leads the industry in scalability and customization, thanks to its unique software development kit (SDK).

As part of this partnership, Glisser will provide strategic and technical support to Amex GBT clients as they seek to extend the reach of their physical events and deliver unique and engaging virtual and hybrid experiences. Glisser will host a series of exclusive webinars to educate and inform on best practice formats for virtual and hybrid events.

Michael Piddock, CEO of Glisser, comments: “We are excited about the global potential of this partnership and the joint value we can bring to customers of both companies. We look forward to collaborating with the Amex GBT team – not just from a software perspective – but also alongside them strategically to help our mutual customers on their sustainability journeys and ESG engagements.

Milton Rivera, VP Global Client Group of Amex GBT said, “This strategic partnership means that Glisser customers will benefit from the unparalleled value, choice and expertise offered by Amex GBT. At the same time, Amex GBT customers can now access Glisser’s suite of audience engagement features and innovative products, including its software development kit that provides a truly integrated and embedded offering for meetings and virtual events.
