EDGE Venues confirms 19,000 venues on its database
EDGE Venues, an online digital portal which supports corporates, associations and agency buyers to find venues for their event programmes around the world, now has 19,000 venues on its database.
Anne Reidy, an event planner at Tulip Events, started using the platform soon after it launched in 2019, and hails its positive impact on her organisation. She said: “EDGE Venues is like a breath of fresh air when it comes to venue finding platforms. There are multiple platforms available that allow you to search venues for events, but none compare to the ease and simplicity of EDGE Venues.
“As event planners, we’re all extremely busy. As much as we continue to build our knowledge of venues, we all need a platform that enables us to compare features between venues to determine suitability, at ease and with speed. The side-by-side comparison tool provided by EDGE Venues allows you clearly identify which properties will work for an event. Using its comprehensive data and by sending request for proposals to multiple venues in one go, it certainly quickens the venue finding process for me.”
Recent developments include the ‘distance from airports’ feature. Where available, venue virtual tours have also been added to the site allowing users to experience more of the venues outside of the standard gallery. Both are simple and effective advancements which help event planners consider venue options.
Jacqui Kavanagh (pictured), MD for EDGE Venues, explains the importance of listening to the site’s users to continue its development: “EDGE Venues was built for the industry, by the industry, and we continue with this mantra as we evolve. As a business, we’re regularly engaging with the agencies to determine what wish-list features they’d like to support them on their venue quests. One advantage that agents benefit from with EDGE Venues is that it can be personalised with their company logo, making this a bespoke service for them.”
