Online venue showcase becomes fully searchable
Haymarket’s C&IT and Event magazines have relaunched their online venue showcase after making it fully searchable.
The Virtual Venue Visit website at www.virtualvenuevisit.com showcases videos of venues from the Celtic Manor in Wales through to the Grimaldi Forum in Monaco. Visitors can easily search venues by key criteria such as cost, location, event type and style.
The site was born out of detailed research with event organisers which revealed that they often did not have time to visit potential event venues but would benefit from video tours that covered the key information.
The revamped site is also intentionally simple and to-the-point to differentiate it from more cluttered competitors.
