Email received from Brett at Whistle & Flute a few weeks after listing (August 2018):
“Our functions are well up on last years. We have had a few corporate weekday things come in too, which we haven’t had much of in the past. So, your site has made a substantial difference to our functions! Also, I have had to answer dozens more enquiries than before!
I’m very happy with it and impressed that there has been so many enquiries! Thanks again for putting this together for us.”
From Chris at Nook Nosh
“I run a small bar in the inner suburbs hosting cocktail functions up to 70 people, and have been on EventScene.com.au for the last 3 years. We also use a number of other online directories and tools to advertise our venue and services.
We’ve found event scene to be a great source of leads, generating on average 3-4 high quality enquiries per week, on which our conversion rate is around 70% – resulting in more functions coming via their directory than all our other listings combined.
We’re generally booked solid ~3 months in advance, with bookings out further than that also – a good number of those bookings come via event scene.
Their pricing is fair, and given the amount of functions it helps us to lock in, represents great value.
Their customer service has always been excellent, so I thoroughly recommend them if you’re looking to promote your function space.”
From Amy at The Joiners Hotel
“Event Scene has been great in assisting our venue to secure lots of functions (mainly 21st and engagement parties which suit our venue perfectly). We have had our venue on their website for almost 3 years now and our business has definitely grown thanks to them! The website looks great & the staff are fantastic to deal with.”
From Mel at Hotel Richmond
“Advertising on third party websites has been our main marketing strategy for generating function enquiries. We have been advertising with Event Scene since 2013. In the past three years, the number of enquiries we have received from Event Scene is double what we see from other third party listings. It is also worth noting that we receive a range of different types of enquiries from Event Scene including 21st birthdays, engagement parties, bucks and hens, weddings and corporate meetings.”
