Have you tried eventwist yet? If you’re planning a corporate event or meeting in Manhattan, they’re definitely worth checking out! They are a venue search website that allows planners to search for venues in the NYC Metro area. The search is simple and there are a few features that planners would certainly love!
All you do is enter your search criteria. You can see below that the information they request is pretty straight forward. You can narrow by type of event, # of guests, catering and amenities. Just like Google for information, eventwist responds with a list of venues that match your criteria.
One of the great things is that they don’t limit your search to venues that fit exactly within your budget, but they show you green, yellow and red banners to help guide you towards venues within, close to or completely outside your budget. With eventwist, it’s all about providing information rather than limiting choices – something any planner can appreciate.
Once you pull up the list of venues that match your search criteria, you can add them to your shortlist. This tool allows you to compare venues, save interesting ones, assign them to future events, and request the eventwist team to check date availability for you. This “concierge service” is one of their more unique features that cuts down considerably on the time and legwork involved in the venue search process.
eventwist is a great tool for planners of corporate events & meetings, cocktail parties, even private events. For larger conferences and more complex events, although you may not be able to enter all of your specifications, it’s still a great time-saving tool for screening out your initial choices. They even have an easy feature that lets you share tips about venues where you’ve produced events, and a mailing list that gets you invitations to cool venue showcase events and other industry news. Check it out and let me know what you think!
