Eventup, the online resource that helps event planners and consumers find and book unique venues, today announced the addition of Boston to its growing city roster. Since Eventup’s February launch, the company has quickly grown to six major metropolitan cities nationwide, including Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco, Miami, Chicago and now Boston.
Eventup is a timesaving solution that helps event planners and consumers research, price, confirm availability and book exclusive event spaces that fit their specific needs. From intimate dinner parties and weddings, to corporate events, product launch parties and photo shoots, Eventup offers a selection of more than 5,000 unique venues that would otherwise be difficult to find. Eventup makes it easy for property owners to list previously under-utilized and under-monetized assets so they can generate additional revenue.
“Finding the right venue for an event is a difficult and time-consuming process. We’re thrilled to be bringing Eventup’s free concierge-like service offering to Boston,” said Eventup Founder and Chief Executive Officer Tony Adam. “Our customers range from weddings and bar mitzvahs, to corporate events for many large companies, including the likes of Yahoo! With more than 5,000 venues nationwide, there’s really something for everyone.”
Eventup is the first online resource of its kind to manage the booking process by identifying venues that meet particular space, time and budget requirements, while offering a $1 million guarantee to both consumers and property owners. Services are free for customers, with property owners paying a 15 percent booking fee. The website makes it easy to research one-of-a-kind locations on date, budget and capacity requirements, then view photos and descriptions of each location. Venue rates range from $500 to $100,000.
Some of the notable venues available in Boston include the Waterworks Museum — constructed during Boston’s Golden Age — featuring large steam engines and pumps; the Royale Nightclub, a former opera hall located in the heart of the city; and an 1801 Sea Captain’s home in Cape Cod with views of Oyster Pond.
Examples of some of the outstanding Eventup venues located in other parts of the country include Madison Square Garden, Radio City Music Hall, Al Capone’s former residence and Marilyn Monroe’s former Los Angeles home.
“Our inventory is growing by the day,” said Adam. “The feedback from customers and property owners has been extremely positive. We literally save consumers, event planners, HR directors and executive assistants days of research and site visits by making all this information available online. And for many property owners, Eventup has generated tens of thousands of dollars in revenue from unused spaces. It’s truly a win-win for everyone.”
