Venuescape - A One-Stop Solution for Event Needs

Recognising the need for a comprehensive event-planning service in Malaysia, Venuescape launched an online ‘Venuepedia’ for venue-sourcing and event-planning. The platform provides users with a concierge-styled service to find the perfect location for an event with just a few clicks of a mouse.

“Usually sourcing a venue for a function takes a lot of time and effort, especially if you have to visit the venues one by one. What we do here at Venuescape is to convert users’ venue-sourcing experience into an exciting and convenient one,” said Dr. Rajiv Bhanot, Managing Director of Venuescape.

During the launch of Venuescape in Glasshouse at Seputeh (which is also a listed partner venue for Venuescape, members of the media were given a walkthrough by Deborah Henry, former Miss Universe Malaysia who's also the Strategic Development Director of Venuescape. From the demonstration, it showcases the various search aspects of the website to specific details of the search from venue needs, event type, number of pax and even offering catering even if the venue does not provide it. Not sure on how you want it? No problem! Just leave it to Venuescape to customize from you based on your input. Fill in the request form and in 48 hours time, someone will be in touch with you.

So whether you’re planning for a birthday party, wedding, conference, concert or any other sort of event, Venuescape is the only platform which presents an all-encompassing approach. With the understanding that planning and executing any event can be a stressful affair, Venuescape makes the experience simpler, smoother and hassle-free. As part of their services, users are offered free consultation and affordable solutions to ensure a successful event, which are customized according to their budgets and ideas.

As part of their ongoing efforts to bring more value to customers, Dr. Bhanot announced a collaboration with Malaysia’s most sought after designer wedding decorator, Razak Ahmad, founder of Flora Luxe. The partnership gives Venuescape customers accessible and affordable designer wedding package options. Ahmad, who has years of experience in the wedding scene has lent his skills to some of the biggest names in the entertainment industry, both local and international.

Venuescape sets itself apart from the competition by being more than just another listing website, catering to not only venue seekers but venue owners. They provide affordable digital marketing solutions to a niche market within the events industry for event spaces, which may be in the form of restaurant, bars, clubs, ballrooms, convention centres - any form of a space, which can be transformed according to a customer’s liking. The Venuescape team also personally visit each and every venue listed on the website, to look for unique features and amenities each place has to offer. Their digital marketing arm also manages requests for the venues on the platform, after identifying this as a pain point for venues to handle on top of their day to day operations.

There are many unique and undiscovered venues throughout Malaysia, many of which are owned or managed by startups and entrepreneurs which would require large funds for traditional advertising. With Venuescape these venues can increase their reach, through social media and other digital mediums with individually tailored content. Following their success in the Klang Valley area, Venuescape announced it had set up a counterpart in Penang to service a new and ready customer base.

The people of Venuescape  plan to grow their business on an international scale and am aiming for various offices within Malaysia in the next couple of months.
