Meeting Escrow
Meeting Escrow was founded in 2015 by industry veteran, Grant Snider, to provide a risk-management solution for deposits paid in advance by meeting planners to hotels and other vendors for future bookings and services.

​Planners were asking, "Why should we pay so much money up front to our vendors? What if something happens before the program starts?"

Vendors were asking, "Why should we wait so long for final payment when we've successfully delivered the services? We're not a bank!"

Meeting Escrow has the solution. Meeting Escrow simplify and secure meeting & event payments globally.
