New online venue booking portal Venuezi.com (Venue Easy) is set to revolutionise the way the public searches for venues, and how venue event managers respond to enquiries and book their venues.
Venuezi’s three business-savvy, hospitality focused founders Jason Titman and brothers Rak and Anesan Naidoo, regard the venture as a “game changer” for the events and hospitality industry.
As a hospitality operator, Venuezi’s Managing Director Jason Titman had always wondered how many function opportunities his venues were missing out on to other venues.
Jason Titman said: “We are committed to developing a solution that is a Win/Win for both the consumer and the venues. The word from the industry seems to be, ‘bring it on’ and ‘why hasn’t someone thought of this before?’”
Members join Venuezi.com for free, posting their function requirements including date, preferred location, guest numbers and space requirements anonymously. Venuezi’s venue partners then respond to enquiries, pitching their venue to the prospective client.
Venuezi’s consumer value comes from the time and money saved from receiving multiple quotes from multiple venues from just one enquiry. Venuezi’s value to venue and event managers and the wider hospitality industry is that they can “fish where the fish are”. Instead of waiting for the phone to ring, Venuezi’s partners have access to a pool of potential customers searching for their ideal venue.
Marketing Director Anesan Naidoo said: “Venuezi’s competitive monthly fee, when compared to traditional advertising costs, makes it the most attractive form of advertising a venue should invest in.”
Venuezi’s back of house reporting systems help inform a venue’s functions team, while the portal’s benchmarking feature also allows venues to monitor their performance against other venues, thus leading to improved service standards across the whole industry.
Venuezi doesn’t solely cater to customers looking for party venues. All types of functions and events are promoted including weddings, meetings, conferences and corporate events.
