    Leading Online Venue Booking Service Connects Philadelphia Event Planners and Consumers with Property Owners Offering Unique Event Locations

    SANTA MONICA, Calif. (February 25, 2013) – Eventup, the leading online resource helping event planners and consumers find and book one-of-a-kind venues, while also generating income for owners on underutilized properties, today announced its expansion to Washington, D.C. Since its February launch, Eventup has quickly grown to eight major cities nationwide, including Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco, Chicago, Miami, Boston, Atlanta, Washington, D.C. and now Philadelphia.

    Eventup is the first comprehensive online marketplace to manage the booking process by helping companies and people find and book exclusive event space on a single site. Customers have access to more than 5,000 one-of-a-kind commercial and privately owned venues that would otherwise be difficult to find, while providing a $1 million guarantee for property owners. Venue rates range from $500 to $100,000.

    “Philadelphia is known for it’s history and has an unbelievable selection of unique commercial and residential event space. We made sure to highlight both traditional spaces but also really amazing historic and unique spaces as well,” said Eventup founder and CEO Tony Adam. “With our timesaving, concierge-like service, we make all this information available online and provide companies like Yahoo! and people with a venue specialist that literally saves days of research and weeks of planning.”

    Eventup gives property owners an opportunity to generate revenue on previously underutilized and undermonetized assets through a free listing service, while also providing a $1 million guarantee. To date, Eventup is responsible for generating tens of thousands of dollars in revenue for property owners.

    “Philadelphia’s real estate market is improving but its recovery is lagging behind. Eventup gives local property owners a great way to make money off their real estate without having to sell at an undervalued price. It’s truly a win-win service for everyone,” said Adam.

    Some of the notable and available Philadelphia event venues include the The Rotunda, a circular building with breathtaking views of Susquehanna River; the meticulously designed Carrére and Hastings Cairnwood Estate, National Historic Landmark Fonthill Castle Estate, Simeone Automotive Museum providing corporate event and meeting planners with a capacity for 2,000 and the very unique indoor tropical paradise, Five Falls Estate.

    Examples of some of the outstanding Eventup venues located in other parts of the country include Madison Square Garden, ABC’s “The Bachelor” Villa De La Vina mansion, Radio City Music Hall, Al Capone’s former residence and Marilyn Monroe’s former Los Angeles home.
