What is the “problem” that your tool seeks to solve?
The problem our tool seeks to solve is the time consuming and frustrating process of finding a location (venue) for your event.
What is the best audience for this tool? Corporate events? Social? Other? Large? Small?
The best audience for our tool is anyone who plans an event and wants to save time and energy in the site selection process whether you are planning a corporate or social event, office get together, happy hour, off site, birthday party, etc, big or small. Since we are adding locations everyday the possibilities are endless!
What does your tool help event planners do better?
Our tool helps you find the best location for your event. At imbookin.com you can search locations (hotels, restaurants, art galleries, rooftops, zoos, loft spaces, retail stores, etc), see the different packages they offer (open bars, pre fixe meals, minimum spend rentals, cocktail receptions, etc), check out availability and how much it costs! With imbookin.com you can compare all the different options and see a bunch of new and unique locations you never considered for your event before. No more wasting time calling and emailing just to ask to questions: Are you available and how much does it cost?
How is your tool different from/better than the competition?
Unlike any other tool out there, we are transparent with information and our system allows location managers to directly enter their details and pricing information and then display upfront for users to search. Also unlike any other tool, at imbookin.com you can actually book to secure your event location online.
What is the single coolest feature of your product?
The fact you can see pricing and compare the options for open bars or 3 course meals for your event at over 250+ locations in NYC is amazing. Never before have you had information at your finger tips like this.
