Meet our Little Team

The story behind VenueScanner starts with the Founders, Benjy and Rebecca, who met working on digital innovation in retail. They’re applying an e-commerce approach to the events sector and have built a little team of wonderful people to help them.

Our story

Welcome to the home of meetings, events and celebrations. We make venue discovery and booking simple and smart. That way you can focus your time on creating the perfect event. Whether you’re looking for a venue for that critical meeting, wild party or somewhere to jam with your band, we’ll help you find the right option, at the best price.

The company was born out of a simple need... in their previous roles, Benjy and Rebecca frequently needed venues for team away days, workshops or roadshows. It was painful, very painful. So, painful that we decided to fix it... with Venue Scanner. We want everyone to be able to find and book venues for any occasion, quickly and simply. In today’s world you can get a ride at the tap of a button, find accommodation in a castle from an app or have a gourmet meal delivered to your doorstep in minutes. Yet finding and booking a venue is fractured and painful. There should be a smarter way to discover that perfect space.

Whilst we bring together traditional venues for users to choose from, we also provide the platform for people to share those ideal undiscovered and under-utilised spaces. We want to make the market both wider and more inspiring, helping to foster creativity and enabling people to capture the value in their unique spaces.

Our mission is to bring together all the great spaces out there and display them in a way that not only makes it easy for you to find what you’re looking for, but shows you exactly what you’re getting, at the right price. Search thousands of venues to discover and book the right one for your event in minutes.

Simple. Smart.

Our little team of wonderful people
