We are thrilled to announce today that, as part of our burgeoning expansion plans and objective to build on AOK Venues’ hugely successful performance, we have signed an agreement to begin a joint venture with the thriving online venue finding service, wefindvenues.
Launched in June 2014, wefindvenues already lists 1000 venues and 5000 individual event spaces, focusing on the UK and Western Europe. The website offers a unique and simple way for the venue seeker to submit an enquiry (RFP) to multiple suitable venues, receive and view detailed proposals in real time (with accurate pricing and availability), and ultimately book their venue of choice. The wefindvenues customer service team is also on- hand should the customer need assistance offline.
For venues, the site offers qualified leads with an average event value of £8k, which can be easily responded to and tracked online, with no sign-up or on-going fees.
wefindvenues’ service perfectly compliments our service offered by AOK Venues, which specialises in sourcing 5 star and high-end venues for clients, offering a bespoke service based on long term relationships with venues, industry insight and detailed proposals.
Mike Kershaw, Non-Executive Chairman for both AOK Events & wefindvenues, said: “wefindvenues is a business I have been interested in for some time, and I am thrilled to have them join the AOK Events group, and to bring their technical expertise into our fast growing operation.”
Paul Moynihan, Director of wefindvenues said: “This is a fantastic opportunity for wefindvenues to partner with one of the UK’s fastest growing event agencies. The deal will mean wefindvenues is showcased to AOK Events’ wide and varied portfolio of clients, and also allows us to offer full service event management and great hospitality packages to our clients through AOK Creative & AOK Cavendish.”
Here's to a long and happy future together!
