1st January 2015

To all Hire Space users, followers, enthusiasts and speculators.

We're really excited about the year ahead. We're pushing forward with a full UK roll-out as we expand across the country and, we're excited to confirm, overseas, too. But more on that later.

Here's a quick run-through of what you can look forward to.

1. You've got a brand new homepage

There are tiles for every event, giving you quick access to whatever you're after.

And you can now browse by city too.

But if you want a precision attack, you can target the exact type of venue you're after with our newly enhanced, super powerful search function.

2. You'll be able to read and write reviews

You can now rate venues after you hire them.

And that means that you can get a better sense of a venue before you hire it.

3. Venues are going to respond even faster

When you contact a venue, they'll get messages direct to their phones, as well as email notifications.

4. You'll have access to the UK's amazing venues

As well as continuing our expansion to Manchester, Liverpool, and Birmingham, we'll be expanding nationwide.

You'll also gain access to new openings, with over 20 brand new venues joining Hire Space each week.

5. You'll be able to venue-book across the globe

That's right - international expansion to cover three continents: Europe, Asia and North America. Get excited.
