Start Taking Bookings
It's that simple. The leads will come directly to you. It couldn't be easier.
How do Event Planners Find Me?
Event planners on Bookings Connected filter event venues and suppliers by budget, location, capacity, and more, so you know you're exactly what they're after. Searchers can also read our articles containing expert advice, which often points them towards relevant suppliers in their area. The more details you add in regards to your services, the higher and more frequently you’ll rank in searches.
How do Event Planners Contact Me?
People planning events can choose to contact our venues and event suppliers directly, straight to your phone or email inbox. By ensuring your contact details are up to date, you'll get qualified leads sent directly to you.
What if I'm Not Available Now?
Many of our venues and event suppliers have already secured bookings for months in advance. The beauty of our pay as you go advanced marketing package for your listing or event means that there’s no ongoing cost, and you can pick and choose the timing that works for you. With some of our busiest suppliers, they use the platform to fill in the days they don’t otherwise have bookings for, such off-peak bookings.
How Long Will it Take to Sign Up?
Creating a new account only takes a few minutes. You’ll be asked to provide some basic details about your company such as the name, address, services provided and company description, then you can add as many or as few details as you like from there. Once verified by our team, your profile will be public and you can start to respond to new bookings.
Can I Include Customer Testimonials?
We absolutely encourage you to add your favourite quotes and images from past customers to your listing, so new event planners can learn more about your services. People using this site are able to review your services on your profile too, so be sure to ask your past customers to leave a review directly, as this will help more customers to choose you.
Can I Connect to Other Suppliers?
The events industry is all about teamwork, so yes! Add your favourite suppliers to your profile so you can let event planners know who you enjoy working with, and don't forget to ask your favourite suppliers to recommend you in return.
How Much Does Bookings Connected Charge?
It’s only £35 to add a fully-featured venue or event service listing to encourage contact from event planners in your local area.
It's also possible to add paid event listings for any event you may be running yourself, and also to upgrade your paid listing to a premium listing with extra benefits.
If you wish, you can choose to pay for an advanced marketing package for your listing or event where we will promote you even further.
After the initial contact from a customer, you’re free to manage the bookings yourself and there's no commission to pay. You can also follow up with that lead directly in future years about more events they might be running, as they're now your customer for life.
What Type of Requests Will I Receive?
We receive requests from a large range of event organisers, whether it’s a bride-to-be looking for a caterer for her wedding, a kids birthday party, or a corporate event planner looking for a large venue and a team of specialist suppliers for a large function. If your services match their needs they will contact you, so you’re only getting leads for the jobs that matter to you.
