Stumped for ideas on where to throw your next party? Punchbowl can help solve that problem with Venue Finder!
Since venue availability can often influence event date, Venue Finder is one of the first steps in the party planning workflow. To find a venue, first start a new event. Once you’ve answered a few simple questions about your event (when is the event, what type of event, etc.), you’ll proceed to Venue Finder.
Your event type will be pre-populated based on your answer from the preview page so all you need to do is enter your zip code and hit the “Search” button. The results for relevant venues in your area will appear on a screen with a map showing their locations. You’ll see a combination of Featured Venues at the top of the search results as well as Additional Venues in your area that meet your criteria. You can also zoom in/out on the Google map to get a better idea of the venue locations.
Once you find a venue, click the “Select” button. This will give you the option to add the venue directly onto your invitation. When you choose “Yes, continue” and select an invitation design, you’ll notice the venue name and location will be automatically pre-populated onto your design.
Even if you have an event venue in mind, it doesn’t hurt to do a quick search in Venue Finder. You might learn about a terrific venue in your area that you didn’t even know existed!
