Great Ideas need Great Spaces
GreatSpaces is here to bridge the gap between spaces and the people who need them by providing a simple online marketplace.
Every day, there are thousands of people looking for space, whether for a party, conference, dance rehearsal or a wedding. Yet every day, thousands of spaces that are perfect for these events go unused. Right now, the only ways to quickly browse different event spaces are by word of mouth, calling up places in your area, or through directory websites that don't specialize in event space. Without a dedicated site, it's all too easy to settle for an expensive big-name venue and miss out on the perfect space that's within budget.
, people with spaces can list their venue on our website complete with descriptions, photos and pricing. Renters can then search the site for a space that suits their needs, negotiate with the owner and book the space directly on our site. Our site also provides members with a calendar and booking management system to keep track of reservations and payments.
In an industry where most deals are still made over the phone and offline, we're providing a way to do business online so that renters and venue owners can spend less time searching and more time throwing awesome events.
