HeadBox, the online marketplace for meeting and event spaces has signed up marketing and advertising group, Dentsu Aegis Network in the UK, to its new business dashboard.
The deal gives Dentsu Aegis Network the ability to search, book and pay for over 4,000 venues in the UK in a matter of clicks.
The newly launched HeadBox Business is a personalised corporate dashboard on top of the HeadBox platform. Headbox claims it helps companies manage multiple venue bookings across multiple teams, departments and territories, and delivers transparency and budget control for all event budgets and venue bookings, as well as insight into what spend and savings are made across the company or network. It also allows corporate clients to pay for their venue of choice not just by Paypal and debit or credit card but also now by invoice, which is automatically generated by the platform on behalf of the venue.
HeadBox Business, during its beta period the company claims, has been used by over 100 blue chip corporates including HSBC, Uber, Farfetch, UBS, Expedia, Mace Plc, as well as seven major WPP companies.
Ali Lord, events manager, Dentsu Aegis Network UK & Ireland, says: “Delivering engaging, inspiring and creative events for our people, our clients and the wider industry is a key part of our communications approach. The HeadBox platform together with its HeadBox Business dashboard offers us an impressive and diverse range of event spaces while also saving us both time and money. It makes the whole process of event booking really easy, simple and transparent across our growing network of UK agencies.”
Andrew Needham, HeadBox CEO & founder said: “We are re-inventing the events industry through technology both by opening up people’s imagination to the different uses of space, and by ensuring the event planning and management process is much easier, simpler, faster, more cost effective as well as transparent.”
