Many entrepreneurs have jumped on this, launching startups that connect people to owners of event centres, and giving them an opportunity to book online.

Say hello to Spacebook, one of the online event booking startups.

According to the team, “at spacebook, we believe the booking process should be as fluid as possible, we’ve created a comprehensive marketplace of locations for people to search, view and book event spaces. From traditional locations like banquet halls to non traditional locations like art galleries and warehouses and corporate locations like workspaces, or Hubs.”

Spacebook also has a feature that enables users hire the services of event vendors. With a database of event vendors that covers DJ, make-up, bridal wears, guards/securities/ushers, event planners and a few others, users can search based on their location and also book via the platform.
