After 12 months of discovery, development and beta testing, Froomz 1.0 has finally launched. The new and improved version of the Bay Area venue marketplace Froomz.com easily connects people to spaces in just a few clicks.
Looking for an event space in San Francisco? Seeking a chic banquet hall in Palo Alto? Froomz.com introduces Froomz 1.0, the recently released alpha version of the Bay Area venue marketplace that instantly connects event planners to venues and vice versa. With a more user-friendly interface and updated features, Froomz 1.0 (http://www.froomz.com) offers a comprehensive solution to finding and renting the perfect place.
Froomz introduced Froomz 1.0 to the techie-fueled San Francisco Bay Area community with a launch party on Thursday, September 27, 2012 at the fabulous 4N5 Gallery. Perfectly planned by Events by Collette and completely catered by Knights Catering and SusieCakes, the event brought together over 100 meeting, event and tech industry professionals in celebration of the site’s release and its year-long development process.
“We’re very excited about introducing Froomz 1.0 to the SF Bay Area,” said Christina Dunham, VP of Marketing at Froomz. “This is the result of 12 months of painstaking discovery and development, balancing what the venues want and what meeting and event planners need. We’ve received an outpouring of support from the community over the past year, and we can’t wait to start working with these powerhouse event planners from Silicon Valley to San Francisco, including Events by Collette, Trendy Lime Events and Designer Fashion cycle.”
Froomz worked with venues to help identify what features they required to help manage their inventory and streamline their back-end reservation process, while at the same time conducting interviews, surveys and focus group discussions with meeting and event planners to determine what they needed to make venue selection and reservations online.
Froomz 1.0 includes an unprecedented balance of these findings. Some of the new features added to Froomz.com include the ability to search for venues based on guest count and venue name from the home page, expanded location-based search options that include region and proximity to address, and more options to refine results based on criteria such as venue type, privacy options and configurations.
Froomz plans to roll out more features in the future that will make it even easier for event planners to instantly compare venue rates, location, amenities, size and much more.
