We’re marking two years since we began our VenueScanner journey, so take a look at our brief history of VenueScanner to find out just how far we’ve come.
This month we’re marking our two-year anniversary of when Rebecca and Benjy quit their jobs at M&S to throw 1000% of their time into working on VenueScanner.
