(Marketingmagazine.com.my) – Recognising the need for a comprehensive event-planning service in Malaysia, Venuescape launched an online ‘Venuepedia’ for venue-sourcing and event-planning. The platform provides users with a concierge-styled service to find the perfect location for an event with just a few clicks of a mouse.
“Usually sourcing a venue for a function takes a lot of time and effort, especially if you have to visit the venues one by one. What we do here at Venuescape is to convert users’ venue-sourcing experience into an exciting and convenient one,” said Dr. Rajiv Bhanot, Managing Director of Venuescape.
“We realized that there was a need for a digital solution. Now with Venuescape, users can simply scroll through our extensive venue listings according to their specific requirements to compare and narrow down their options, limiting the number of places they have to physically visit,” he explained, speaking at the launch held at listed partner venue, Glasshouse at Seputeh.
Members of the media were taken through an experiential demonstration of the platform by former Miss Universe Malaysia and Strategic Development Director of Venuescape, Deborah Henry. Henry conducted a walkthrough of the website, showcasing the various search options available to finding the perfect venue, from the type of event, location, venue type, number of pax amongst others.
Whether you’re organizing a birthday party, wedding, conference, concert or any other sort of event, Venuescape is the only platform which presents an all-encompassing approach. With the understanding that planning and executing any event can be a stressful affair, Venuescape makes the experience simpler, smoother and hassle-free. As part of their services, users are offered free consultation and affordable solutions to ensure a successful event, which are customized according to their budgets and ideas.
Venuescape also offers professional event coordinator services to guide and counsel clients through the entire process from venues and programme flow, to food, décor and entertainment. Venuescape furthermore runs an online digital events lifestyle magazine, The Venuescaper’s Guide, where visitors can get inspiration and creative ideas on the latest event trends, latest and unique venue listings, décor themes and more.
As part of their ongoing efforts to bring more value to customers, Dr. Bhanot announced a collaboration with Malaysia’s most sought after designer wedding decorator, Razak Ahmad, founder of Flora Luxe. The partnership gives Venuescape customers accessible and affordable designer wedding package options. Ahmad, who has years of experience in the wedding scene has lent his skills to some of the biggest names in the entertainment industry, both local and international.
Venuescape sets itself apart from the competition by being more than just another listing website, catering to not only venue seekers but venue owners. They provide affordable digital marketing solutions to a niche market within the events industry for event spaces, which may be in the form of restaurant, bars, clubs, ballrooms, convention centres – any form of a space, which can be transformed according to a customer’s liking.
There are many unique and undiscovered venues throughout Malaysia, many of which are owned or managed by startups and entrepreneurs which would require large funds for traditional advertising. With Venuescape these venues can increase their reach, through social media and other digital mediums with individually tailored content. Following their success in the Klang Valley area, Venuescape announced it had set up a counterpart in Penang to service a new and ready customer base.
“We are excited to extend our services to those up north, as the events scene has grown tremendously over there. Malaysia has so much potential, with creative ideas and art concepts, translated into beautiful venues. It would be a shame if they were left undiscovered,” adds Dr. Bhanot.
