Like a lot of planners, you may start with a online search. From there, you create a spreadsheet, start to identify criteria, send a few emails, call a few locations, and come up with a solid list of potential venue options.
But how long does that take you? You can lose hours searching event spaces, browsing hotel websites, or calling venues you've worked with before. None of these tactics are efficient nor do they make it easy to compare venues, send RFPs, or review bids side-by-side.
It shouldn't surprise you by now, that the answer to this cumbersome process is simple – event technology.
Venue sourcing tools make everything so much easier. They provide a searchable database of venues, enable you to compare venues across the same criteria, allow you to easily send out RFPs, and get you set up to do the only thing you can't do with event technology – go on site visits. Though with the help of VR technology, you might be able to do that someday soon too!
We've broken down the entire process of venue sourcing into a few simple steps, that - when using a great venue sourcing tool like Cvent Supplier Network - will take the headache out of finding the perfect place to host your next event.Check out the Cvent Supplier Network
