The Spot Launches Marketplace for Corporate Event Planning

SAN FRANCISCO, CA, Nov. 5 — Just in time for the holiday party season, Wedding Spot, an online marketplace that connects engaged couples with wedding venues, today announced the launch of The Spot that expands its product offering to the corporate events market.

The Spot is a free marketplace that features a diverse collection of event spaces and curated experiences for corporate groups that can be easily searched, priced, and booked all from one spot.

"As the CEO of a growing startup in San Francisco, I see how important culture is to our organization and every other startup down the street,” said Tina Hoang-To, CEO of Wedding Spot. “It’s challenging to constantly find and book fun experiences and unique venues for off-sites and holiday parties. But after helping 1.5 million users find their perfect venue, we’re confident The Spot will give our business colleagues a resource to create memorable experiences for their teams."

Corporate event planning often falls on the shoulders of executive assistants, COOs and sometimes even busy CEOs. To make their job easier, The Spot's search platform helps them get instant online quotes for venues based on location, style, event type, budget, and guest count. For those seeking creative on-site or off-site group activities, The Spot’s concierge team provides a collection of curated experiences ranging from whiskey tastings to team scavenger hunts to sightseeing tours, all of which can be booked directly through the website.

The launch of The Spot signifies the company’s focus on expanding to serve the massive $263 billion dollar U.S. meetings and events industry. Working directly with event venues, The Spot refers targeted, pre-qualified leads that help venue managers save time and maximize their bookings with additional business from holiday parties, conferences, team-building events, and corporate meetings.

"For the past few years we’ve hosted our holiday parties at the same few venues that we knew, but this year thanks to The Spot, we found a variety of new choices that fit our needs and budget and were easy to book," said Calvin Lam of GBC International Bank. "We will definitely be using The Spot to plan events in the future."

The Spot is currently available in the Northern California for event spaces and curated experiences, and in the Southern California for event spaces. Expansion to all major U.S. regions is planned for 2016.
