Venue finding agencies aren’t in short supply, but how do you know if you’ve found a good one? There’s no industry regulation and it only takes one bad apple to spoil the whole batch. At Function Fixers, we believe in honesty and transparency in all our business dealings, and are keen to clear up any misconceptions and misinformation about what a venue finder should and shouldn’t be doing for you.

What does a venue finding company do?

So let’s start with the basics. The actual process of finding the right venue is quite straightforward. You, the customer, send us a brief detailing what you are looking for in terms of budget, size, location, facilities, ambience etc. Our experienced team of venue finders will get to work immediately, searching high and low until we find the venue that fits your requirements exactly.

We work closely with you throughout the event planning process, liaising with venues, arranging site visits and negotiating on your behalf. Thanks to our involvement, you can spend your precious time, effort and money on other elements of organising the actual event.

How does a venue finder add value?

Put simply, for our customers, we are the missing team member they don’t have to train, supervise or even pay! Our skilled venue finders have accumulated a vast amount of industry knowledge over the years. Without exaggeration, we know pretty much everyone in the business and have a near encyclopaedic knowledge of event spaces – from prestigious Central London venues to tucked away rural retreats, from creative contemporary event spaces to gorgeous historical venues, and with a fair sprinkling of quirky venues thrown in for good measure.

There’s a lot of work involved in finding and booking just the right venue, but with our exemplary work ethic, high standards of customer service and industry track record, you can absolutely trust us to get the job done. As an independent venue finding agency not affiliated with any organisation we work with, we can dedicate our efforts to your bespoke needs, offering impartial, professional advice and the best possible customer service.

So how does it work financially?

Perhaps one of the key advantages of using a professional venue finder is the expertise we have in contract negotiations. Thanks to the commercial clout we have built up within the industry, our team can negotiate some truly spectacular deals with your chosen venue, meaning you pay even less than if you had booked with them direct.

Then there’s the small print to consider around cancellation policies, attrition rates, service level agreements and so much more. With Function Fixers on the case, you can be sure that any glitches with venue hire contracts are spotted in time and ironed out to your satisfaction.

And there’s more. Believe it or not, our venue finding services are completely free of charge to our clients. How can this be? Is there a catch? Not really when you consider that we operate a fair, commission based business model with the venues we deal with.

What’s in it for the venues?

At Function Fixers, we work with a vast number of venues all over London, the UK and even abroad. Over the years, we’ve built up a high level of trust in the professional relationships we have with many organisations. The results are commercially rewarding for the individual venues we do business with, and for ourselves.

What’s more, venues like working with professional venue finders such as ourselves. We all share a passion for the events industry and respect each other as fellow professionals keen to make every event a positive experience for everyone involved.
