Will you allow unlimited venue memberships?View Answers »
We do not have a limit on the number venue members we will allow. We do handpick all of our venue members, so you can be confident that we take very seriously who makes the list. The significance here is that your venue or event space is distinctive- not a commodity. Each space brings a uniqueness, and no matter how many venues are members you can be sure that none of them will compare directly with another.
How can I be sure my venue membership is offering a return on my investment?View Answers »
The beauty of your VenueAgent membershipis that it's an immediate ROI. The value of a positive professional review, user reviews, the ability to control your online presence, images, and other membership benefits, all impact your brand immediatly.
In addition, and unlike traditional marketing efforts (like print or other interruption type marketing which is next to impossible to track) you can track several metrics very closely. Through your venue dashboard you can see your profile views, through your website analytics you can see how much traffic VenueAgent is driving to your site, you will be getting direct contact forms from VenueAgent from qualified event hosts, and of course it's always good practice to ask your event customers ‘where they heard about’ you- as clientle will often just call you directly.
I run a banquet hall, can we have a VenueAgent membership?
Unfortunately, we restrict our venue memberships to spaces that are either untapped/unique or truly distinctive venues. While we have enjoyed many events and business functions at traditional event facilities and banquet halls, these event space types are not a good fit for VenueAgent. However, if your banquet hall or event center does offer something that is truly unique or unlike any other event space, please apply here for consideration.
Can anyone review my venue?View Answers »
Anyone that is a registered user on VenueAgent can review venues. However, all venue members can monitor their reviews on their venue dashboard. In the rare case that there would be a ‘disputed’ review, it can be submitted to VenueAgent to be considered for removal from the site.
