Splace it!by Anna Kopito | 27.12.14
The brainchild of two architects, Splacer is an exciting new web-based innovation designed to help users find the perfect space for their event. The goal of the application is not only to match clients with event spaces, but to also change the way people use and think about spaces to create amazing experiences.
Potential clients can sort spaces by number of attendees, use of the space, and general vibe. The user-friendly website enhances the event-planning experience greatly: a simple, aesthetically pleasing design coupled with amazing photographs of the spaces available. Not only is it easy to use, the application makes the event spaces look incredibly hip and inviting. It’s hard to not imagine yourself sipping cocktails, looking devastatingly dashing in one of these spaces.
Ranging from massive rooftops meant for epic parties, to sleek and modern galleries perfect for sophisticated functions, Splacer does an excellent job of providing a comprehensive database of spaces for every possible function. Even more useful is a helpful sidebar that suggests relevant local services that users may need for their event: caterers and photographers are just a few of the suggested tradespeople. Each listing contains photographs, reviews, and an easy contact form to request more information. Similar to the popular Airbnb application, users can also add spaces to a personalized “wishlist” for future use, or advertise their own space for rent.
The best (and most fun) feature is the ability to search by “vibe” of the space. Listing fun, unconventional options such as “colourful” and “green” alongside more traditional options (“urban” and “modern”) makes exploring the different options available a playful experience – honestly, you’ll want to search even when you don’t have an event to throw.
While currently limited to Tel Aviv, the service promises expansion to New York, Stockholm, Paris and London soon, making the event-planning process a much more simple and pleasant experience.
