Eventup – Find a Venue For Your Event

Whether you’re hosting a charity gala, a company retreat, or an industry conference, you’re definitely going to need a space to hold it in. Finding a venue that’s centrally located and large enough to fit the number of guests you’re expecting isn’t always easy. That’s why Eventup was created. The web-app can help event planners find the perfect venues for all their upcoming fetes.

The first question you have to ask yourself when searching for the perfect venue on Eventup is where you’re event is being held. The bigger the city you’re aiming for, the more likely you’ll find a suitable space on Eventup. Enter the name of the city where you’re event is being held, then use the search criteria on the left-hand side of the screen to narrow down your venue options based on the type of event, number of guests, and the price you’re willing to spend. Eventup will provide a list of venues that fit your needs. Not only does the web-app list standard facilities like banquet halls and restaurants, but it also lists unique locations like personal residences, boutique hotels, and commercial lofts. Click on a venue that looks interesting, and Eventup will provide you with additional photos, as well as rates and availability information. To move the process along even further, click “Inquire For Quote.”

People who would like to make some extra cash by renting their facilities out for special events and photo shoots can use Eventup, as well. The web-app lets people list their venues for free, and offers all the tools necessary to create stylish venue listings complete with high-res photos and colorful descriptions. Listing owners have 24 hours to accept or decline any reservations made through the site, knowing their payments will come directly from Eventup after they have accepted the request.
