“Eventup levels the playing field for people searching for the best venues for their events by giving them access to the most incredible locations they would have typically had to source through a party planner,” said Tony Adam, CEO of Eventup.
Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) February 07, 2012
Eventup (http://www.Eventup.com), an online event booking destination for the most exceptional commercial and privately owned properties, today announced the launch of its free service. The site enables users to save time and money by searching for and booking exclusive venues on their own, without insider knowledge or hiring an event planner. Commercial and private property owners have the opportunity to make money by offering their locations for event bookings, with the added security of listing through Eventup.
Users are able to search for venues by the scope and type of event in their desired city, from a birthday or dinner party to photo shoot or wedding. Options range from private beach homes and restaurants to properties formerly unavailable to the average person, such as CBS’s Big Brother set, the house from HBO’s Entourage, former homes of Eric Clapton and Jim Morrison, along with the Academy Award’s Dorothy Chandler Pavilion. Users get a sense for each venue based on the images, reviews and offerings provided without spending countless hours on the phone or even stepping foot in a venue.
Venue owners and private homeowners can market their properties on the premier events marketplace to increase their revenue and offer underutilized spaces. Whether you are an art gallery, restaurant or hotel, you can now maximize capacity utilization by enabling consumers to book their venues directly through Eventup. Private homeowners benefit from making extra money renting out their homes when they are on vacation, or simply when they get a great offer.
“Eventup levels the playing field for people searching for the best venues for their events by giving them access to the most incredible locations they would have typically had to source through a party planner,” said Tony Adam, co-founder and CEO of Eventup. “By simplifying the process with online booking and straight-forward pricing options, customers know what they are getting up front. Our goal is to have the most comprehensive database of incredible locations so property owners can fill their spaces and customers have the best options to choose from without the hassle of spending hours and days doing on-site location visits.”
Eventup will also offer users celebrity experiences to enhance their special occasion. The site has partnered with celebrities like Lisa D’Amato, a winner of America’s Next Top Model cycle 17, and Marcel Vigneron, former contestant on Bravo’s Top Chef and host of Marcel’s Quantum Kitchen on SyFy, to create packaged party experiences. Users can book a dinner party at a private home where Marcel cooks and teaches guests culinary techniques, or host a bachelorette party where Lisa teaches them how to walk the runway.
Eventup manages all financial transactions and bookings through the site, offering venue owners insurance options to safeguard their property. The company’s customer support care is available 24/7 to answer questions from both venue listers and booking guests to make the event planning process more efficient.
“Event planning is a $263 billion dollar industry, and to date there has been no effective platform that makes it easy for the average consumer to find a venue, or for property owners to directly promote their locations to event bookers,” said Michael Jones, CEO of technology studio Science, Inc. which developed Eventup. “This platform allows anyone to host an incredible event at a one-of-a-kind venue that they never before had access too!”
Eventup will continue to roll out city-by-city throughout 2012 to create a nationwide database of the most sought-after venues.
