Eventup, the leading online resource helping event planners and consumers find and book one-of-a-kind venues, while also generating income for owners on underutilized properties, today announced its expansion to Washington, D.C. Since its February launch, Eventup has quickly grown to eight major cities nationwide, including Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco,Chicago, Miami, Boston, Atlanta and now Washington, D.C.
Eventup is the first online resource of its kind to manage the booking process by helping event planners and consumers research, price, confirm availability and book exclusive event space on a single site. Customers have access to more than 5,000 one-of-a-kind commercial and privately owned venues that would otherwise be difficult to find, while providing a $1 million guarantee for property owners. Venue rates range from $500 to $100,000.
“Washington, D.C. has an unbelievable selection of unique commercial and residential event space. It could take days — even weeks — to find the perfect event location in this town,” said Eventup founder and chief executive officer Tony Adam. “With our timesaving, concierge-like service, we make all this information available online, literally saving consumers, event planners, HR directors and executive assistants for businesses such as Yahoo!, days of research and site visits.”
Eventup gives property owners an opportunity to generate revenue on previously underutilized and undermonetized assets through a free listing service, while also providing a $1 million guarantee. To date, Eventup is responsible for generating tens of thousands of dollars in revenue for property owners.
“Although the D.C. real estate market is improving, overall, it’s still sluggish. Eventup gives local property owners a great way to make money off their real estate without having to sell at an undervalued price. It’s truly a win-win service for everyone.”
Some of the notable venues available in D.C. include the Versatile Chesapeake Bay Resort with some of the best bay views in the area; the legendary Fillmore Silver Spring offering diverse music programming with a capacity of 2,000, and Pennsylvania Avenue’s Newseum, a sought after venue for conferences.
Examples of some of the outstanding Eventup venues located in other parts of the country include Madison Square Garden, ABC’s “The Bachelor” Villa De La Vinamansion, Radio City Music Hall, Al Capone’s former residence and Marilyn Monroe’s former Los Angeles home.
