ONE of the world's fastest-growing online marketplaces for venue hire, has announced it has launched in five new cities in the UK, including Bradford.

Tagvenue, a British young and rapidly growing start-up, has already established a very strong market position in London, and demonstrated good performance in Manchester, Birmingham and Liverpool.

Millions of people can now browse and book for free over 5,200 UK event spaces listed on Tagvenue’s platform from pubs, restaurants and cafes to castles, conference halls and even churches.

As one of the UK’s leading venue finders, Tagvenue has registered about 6,000 monthly booking enquiries this year, while the website receives more than 130,000 monthly visits.

Co-founder Arthur Stepaniak said: “This is a very exciting and important milestone for us, which significantly grows our reach and moves us further towards our goal of covering the whole of the UK.”

Max Kondratjuks, Tagvenue co-founder, added: “After only seven months since launching in our fourth location (Liverpool), we are encouraged by the pace of our expansion and positive traction we receive with our customers.

"The more venues we have in large cities, the more venues we can attract in smaller cities and the greater choice people have to find their perfect venue – all on one dedicated venue booking platform.”

Tagvenue platform allows users to search for different event venues, as well as enquire and book directly with venue managers without visiting the space, completely free of charge. Using the smart venue-finder tool, visitors can apply filters, narrow down their search and have a virtual tour to find the most suitable venue in a matter of clicks.
