Corporate events venue-finding platform, Eventopedia has launched its 2nd European destination – Monte Carlo.
The premise is for event planners to share their experiences with industry peers via online reviews. Digital tools, such as the Virtual Site Inspection, provide an added dimension enabling venue operators and destinations to convey their meetings and events information succinctly to event planners.
Teaming up with Monte-Carlo Societe des Bains des Mer (commonly called Monte Carlo SBM), Eventopedia now offers a fast search and match engine with 99% of the Monte-Carlo event spaces represented.
Monte Carlo SBM Business Development Director – UK & Ireland, Ugo Delory says: “We’ve known the Eventopedia team for many years and believe in their unique concept of using smart digital products to deliver high value and efficiencies in the sourcing process”.
Eventopedia was founded by hospitality and venue expert, Toby Heelis and former corporate agency director Alan Newton. More growth into major event destinations is planned, with New York, Dubai, and Paris all set to be launched before the end of the year.
“Our combination of digital and online tools are appealing to destinations, individual venues, and corporate event planners alike. Having worked with Monte Carlo SBM for many years, we felt launching Monte-Carlo as the second Eventopedia destination aligned with our high-level service and value for money,” said Newton.
Eventopedia committee member and head of venues and travel management at Informa, Melissa Willock added: “Monte Carlo suffers from misconceptions due to its glitz and glamour, yet it’s a destination that offers value for money and excellent meetings and events facilities with world-class service. We’ve regularly used the destination and it’s encouraging to see Eventopedia team up with Monte Carlo SBM to convey this message.”
