Eventup is a venue search tool intended for event organizers and others involved with large social gatherings. The application lists available venues for Los Angeles, San Francisco and New York. Each is presented with images, a description, Google Map of the area, rates and availability and any applicable insurance and other fee requirements. The user can also review basic details, such as the type of venue, maximum occupancy, amenities, location and the types of events that can be hosted at the venue. Users can browse highlighted venues on the homepage or search for venues by location. Three links are also available to show users venues in all three cities the website covers. Each venue page has a built in quote request tool that lets the user enter the desired event date and time of day to receive a quote for rental.
Eventup was founded by Tony Adam. The application was designed to help users locate the perfect venue. So far Eventup lives up to expectations by providing a lot of practical information for each venue. The application currently has a limited service area, covering venues in three major U.S. cities. Although each city is very large, it still leaves a lot of territory that could use a way to find venues for events.
Eventup stands out because it offers helpful information for each venue it covers. Users can see more than a few images and a short description of the location. The application provides Google Maps of the area along with insurance details, all applicable fees and maximum occupancy totals. The user can also request a quote directly from the venue page. The only downside is that Eventup only lists venues in three cities, so it may not work for every visitor searching for a good event venue.
Eventup offers a clean interface that is unique and charming. The dark purple color scheme adds a dramatic flourish that remains firmly rooted in the background. This allows the user to enjoy the look of the site without feeling distracted from their venue search. Each page is well-organized and presents all venue information in easy to navigate tabs. The experience remains positive because of Eventup’s tidy design.
Visitors can search event venues to their heart’s content without registering. Users who would like to access all features can click the “Sign Up” tab in the upper, right hand corner of the homepage. This takes the user to the login area and registration form. The form on the right asks for an email address and password. The user can click the blue “Sign Up with Facebook” button above the form if they prefer to register with their social networking account instead. The user is automatically logged in after registering.
Anyone can join the Eventup community for free. There is no fee for creating an account. Users can browse as much as they like with or without an account. Users can book venues for free. Users can also list their venue as available at no cost. The site charges a 10% booking fee each time the venue is successfully booked. The fee is determined by the total venue rental cost.
Eventup is a helpful tool for anyone who is looking for a venue or has an available venue in the San Francisco, Los Angeles or New York areas. The application gives users a place to advertise their venue for free. Users in need of a venue can gather a lot of practical information without sending a single email or making a phone call. The website is user friendly and offers access to many unique event locations.
