KNOXVILLE, TN - In an effort to celebrate venues across the country, EventBooking, a software company based in Knoxville, TN is hosting the first of a series of industry workshops on Tuesday, July 11th at the Knoxville Convention Center (KCC). All event and venue professionals of the area
are welcome to attend the workshop discussion, which will take place at 10:00am in the KCC Board Room. This event is free of charge.
EventBooking, which serves over 700 venues across 5 continents, enables staff personnel within arenas, convention centers, theatres and performing arts centers to book events and manage their venue through an online platform.

The workshop is the first of many that EventBooking will be hosting over the next three weeks, as a part of a larger networking endeavor known as The Road to VenueConnect. Complete with a companybranded RV, the road-trip tour will consist of 17 visits to venues in 17 cities across the US, where CEO John Platillero and two other EventBooking team members will engage venue personnel from each
location in a workshop discussion about the industry. Their hope is to gather insight about the evolution of technology used within venues, as well as the future technology of booking, marketing, and managing events.

John Platillero, who founded EventBooking in 1999, stated “The road trip is a great way to be fully engaged and hear first-hand about the direction the industry is headed. And what better place to kick everything off than in our very own hometown?”

At the conclusion of the trip, equipped with comprehensive feedback from across the country, they’ll present their findings at the annual International Association of Venue Managers (IAVM) VenueConnect conference, held this year in Nashville, TN.
