How should I price my venue?

Getting your advertised venue price right is really important. Get the price wrong and you'll not be competitive in your market and your venue won't appear in the relevant searches made by our members. 

If you'd like us to assist you in recommending a price for your venue, we can do this for a small fee. We'll analyse the market in your area, looking at the pricing of similar venues and the pricing of events recently booked in your area. Simple ask by getting in touch at hello@venuescanner.com

Our pricing top tips:

1
The price you list on VenueScanner must include any VenueScanner commission and must be inclusive of VAT. This ensures that Event Organisers know exactly how much they'll pay. 
2

No way POA. Avoid it. Our members are 4x more likely to click thru to your venue if you choose one of our 'from' pricing options than if you choose Price On Asking.

3

When it comes to setting a price, we provide you full flexibility to choose between Price Per Day, Price Per Hour, Price Per Guest or Minimum Spend. The prices are all displayed as 'from' pricing and there's a price comment box too where you can mention variability in prices based on day of the week, mention out-of-hours surcharges or explain any other important features of your pricing structure.

There are minimums set at which you can advertise your pricing and the same minimum applies on the price you set when confirming the price for an enquiry and/or booking. For more details of the pricing minimums, see our Ts & Cs or alternatively see the guidance on the Edit Space page in My Venues (you'll need to be logged in to access it). the VenueScanner Advertised Price should be achievable on at least 45% of days in the year. For example it is not permissible to advertise the price as £100 per day, if this price is only available on Tuesdays during winter months.
