We are very excited to be launching our crowdfunding campaign this month. So we wanted to fill you in on our plans and what the opportunity could hold for you as a venue manager.

Why are we doing it?

Hire Space is changing the events industry and we want your help! Our mission is to be the go-to venue marketplace in every major city in the world.

Since our launch in 2013 we have expanded our ever-growing network to include over 3500 venues and a community of the best event professionals in the UK, people just like you, and we want to make this even stronger by giving you the chance to help shape our direction and define the global events industry of the future.

You can invest in us as an individual or as a venue, meaning as our business grows, so will yours. The money we raise will help to accelerate our growth in the UK, to capture a share in a £15bn domestic events market, and expand overseas into a global market worth £350bn.

But, most of all we want to create a community of event professionals who we can collaborate with and build an exciting future for Hire Space and the events industry as a whole.

What’s in it for you?

  1. Crowdfunding allows you to invest in our company and stake a claim in our future.

  2. Hire Space is offering shares in return for investment so, if the company makes a profit, then so do you or your venue.

  3. There's also a whole host of rewards and incentives, depending on the amount you invest:

£100+: You'll get 10% off bespoke marketing packages for 2 months.

£500+: You'll get 10% off bespoke marketing packages for 1 year.

£1000+: You'll get 10% off marketing packages for 3 years and a quarterly visit from a Senior Venue Expert to discuss sales strategy.

£5000+: You'll get 10% off bespoke marketing packages for life!

£50,000+: You’re part of Hire Space. You'll get all of the above, plus you’ll form part of a new advisory committee for Hire Space stakeholders, voting on our strategy and helping to shape the events industry of the future.

Our marketing packages help to make your venue more visible on the Hire Space site, whether it's through a blog post, social media shout-out or in our newsletter. We create bespoke packages that focus on your business objectives and offer advice and guidance throughout.
