‘Congratulations’ and ‘Welcome’ to Matthew Egan of VenueSearch who made the leap from the New Frontiers hot-desk room to M106 (First Floor) at the Media Cube. Matthew completed the New Frontiers programme in 2020 and had been working toward the continued growth of VenueSearch.
VenueSearch connects party planners, the general public and businesses across Ireland, with fantastic venues to host a wide range of corporate events, social events and unique experiences. VenueSearch provides partner venues with the #1 digital marketing platform to promote their offerings all year round to a highly relevant audience, enabling them to acquire lucrative group bookings with minimal hassle, cost and effort. The platform has been processing record levels of visitors to the website and bookings on the platform in 2021, and has also had over 100,000 visitors (primarily venue staff) from around the world to the VenueSearch social distancing capacity calculator tool.
Covid continues to make for a challenging business environment, however the company has had huge success in providing premium virtual entertainment and virtual team building events for corporate clients such as Google, Facebook, Microsoft, J&J, HubSpot, Deloitte etc., during periods when in-person events are not possible or advised. Working with high-end suppliers, VenueSearch offers a range of fun, unique virtual experiences such as an interactive Keith Barry Brain-hacking show, bespoke comedy from Mario Rosenstock, Bingo Loco, Teeling Whiskey tastings, cocktail making and online yoga & mindfulness sessions to name but a few.
