Venue sourcing, love it or hate it, it’s an integral part of planning an event.
Last year we spoke to many of our customers about how their teams had changed and how they saw the future as we move out of the pandemic. One thing that really resonated with us was that teams had unfortunately been downsized and the expectation was that teams would stay this way for some time, meaning those who book events regularly will be busier than ever.
With these insights, we set out to understand what parts of planning an event took the most time.
As you’ve probably guessed, venue sourcing was at the top of the list in most cases. This then begged the question, what could be done to help customers with this time-consuming part of the journey, surely there’s a better way?
Our answer: Smart Book⚡️
What is Smart Book
📝 Smart Book uses our fancy new Brief Builder to capture all of your requirements.
👩🏫 Your Virtual Events Expert (VEE) then matches your brief with relevant and available venues.
💌 You’ll receive real-time updates when each venue responds! So you can review and book at your leisure within the new Smart Book platform!
Gone are the days of reaching out to multiple venues only for them to reply that they’re booked out, leaving you back at square one. With Smart Book you submit your brief once and only hear from venues that are available.
We put you in control, giving you the details of the venue upfront so if you have any questions or feedback you can do it directly. What’s best is Smart Book bookings are commission-free, you pay what you agree with the venue, that’s it! No long searches, no hidden costs, no stress
