What is a Venue Finder?


question we are often asked so here is our chance to explain what we do. A venue finder acts as an extension to a venues sales team by introducing/booking/bringing business to their venues. In return they receive a commission which is how they can offer the service free to their clients.

Ultimately the job of a venue finder is to save time and money as it can be a very time consuming, searching for a venue.

A venue finding agent will source suitable venues to meet the client’s requirement and budget.


A venue finding agent has access to many venues, not just hotels and conference centres but also the more unique and unusual venues such as sporting venues, museums, stately homes, cinema and screening rooms to name a few which a client may not be familiar with.

Venue Finders keep up to date with new developments – with all the name changes and new openings a venue finding agency will have all the information to hand.

A venue finder is not limited to finding you a meeting room or training room in a venue. They can also help with Summer & Christmas Parties, Drinks Receptions, Corporate Dinners, Corporate Teambuilding etc


Due to the amount of business placed by agencies, they use their buying power and negotiation skills to get the best possible rates.

An agency will act as a ‘middle man’ shielding clients from venue chase calls and holding the event space provisionally on your behalf to enable you to make a decision.
