- Take a virtual tour of venue with 360 degree view.
- Tentatively block the venue for 48 hours via the website
- Make advance payment on the website to block the venue.
Quite a few startups have come up in this sector in the last few years, but most of them are focusing on weddings only. In contrast, They have gained a lot of experience in a wide variety of corporate and social events. This means that Bookeventz has two major advantages over its competitors – the first mover’s advantage, and the ability to scale up. Investors have noticed these advantages and accordingly, they have successfully raised an angel round from Mumbai Angels, among others.
They are looking forward to a brilliant run in the near future. In two years’ time, our aim is to become the AirBnB of Venue Booking.
