TSNN Partners with JWC GMBH to Launch Venue and Service Provider Search Platform: venueScout
Trade Show News Network (TSNN), a member of the Tarsus Group and a global leader in online news and resources for the trade shows, exhibitions and events industry, has partnered with jwc GmbH, the leading consulting services company for the trade show and conference industry. , as part of the launch of venueScout, the premier global platform connecting professionals who want to organize and host events, and venue operators and service providers looking to attract more business.
The partnership aims to promote opportunities for North American and Mexican event venues and service providers to gain more traction and business as the event industry picks up.
placeScout is the brainchild of jwc board members Jochen Witt, former President and CEO of Koelnmesse and UFI, Dr. Gerd Weber, former Executive Vice President of Koelnmesse, and Jimé Essink, former President and CEO of Informa Markets Asia.
Through the trio’s extensive work and research with event venue operators, organizers and associations, the team gained insight into a better framework and system for event organizers and meeting planners to research and evaluate global event venue locations alongside event service providers.
The venueScout platform will allow users to search by many criteria and view detailed information such as floor plans, hall and hall dimensions, move-in capacities, visitor and organizer reviews , the appropriate service providers, and even to allow organizers to submit calls for tenders.
Additionally, venueScout’s framework presents venue and service provider data in a uniform manner, making it a one-stop shop for event organizers and meeting planners. Venue operators and service providers, on the other hand, can obtain more leads from interested parties wishing to book their venue and services through venueScout as an additional marketing channel. venueScout will offer free listings available for all sites and additional tiered premium plans that will unlock even more features.
“venueScout will provide an exceptional user experience beyond any event directory or venue finder currently on the market,” said Jochen Witt.
He added, “As such, we are thrilled to partner with such an established brand as TSNN to help as many venues and service providers as possible promote their business and get our industry back on track.”
“TSNN has deep roots and relationships with all major exhibition, conference and meeting venues in North America and Mexico, which makes us experts in this region,” said Rachel Wimberly, President and editor-in-chief of TSNN. “As such, we are delighted to partner with jwc on venueScout given their thorough work and reputation in the industry.”
venueScout has already built more than 4,000 venue profiles worldwide, including major exhibition, conference and convention centers, and a growing number of hotels with large meeting capacity. Owners of these locations are invited to participate in the soft launch of venueScout taking place in July 2022 and “claim their location” to further edit and add content to their listing. During the soft launch period, these venues can also take advantage of a 50% discount on packages and be automatically upgraded to Platinum members for one year from the full launch of venueScout. venueScout expects a full launch for all users towards the end of 2022.
