Book Unique Venues for Fun Activities to Charge Your Social Calendar with New Lifecrowd, Eventup Partnership
Seamless Integration Makes it Easy for Hosts to Book an Exclusive Location and Invite Guests with Just a few Mouse Clicks
SANTA MONICA, Calif., May 24, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Social activities discovery site Lifecrowd today announced a new partnership with fellow LA-based startup and event venue marketplace Eventup to make it easy for users to find unique and memorable venues for social activities created on Lifecrowd, all with just a few clicks of the mouse. The two will kick off the partnership with an exclusive event comprised of a medley of interactive Lifecrowd sessions, including sushi rolling at Geisha Studios located in the historic 1927 Granada Buildings in Los Angeles, showcasing the distinctive experience Eventup locations and Lifecrowd activities create together.
The new Lifecrowd and Eventup integration works two ways. First, activity hosts can create an activity listing on Lifecrowd and instantly click through to Eventup to find and book a unique venue space to welcome guests for wine tastings, cooking sessions and any other fun activity. Similarly, when booking a venue through Eventup, organizers can easily create a corresponding activity listing on Lifecrowd to share event details and allow users to RSVP.
"We're helping users create exceptionally entertaining activities by providing the tools to make them fun and simple to organize," said Lifecrowd CEO Bong Koh. "Eventup offers access to a range of impressive and unique spaces – now users can easily find the perfect setting for their Lifecrowd activity."
The first startup to launch out of the MuckerLab incubator/accelerator program, Lifecrowd provides an online platform for both discovering and hosting social activities. Emphasizing casual settings for connecting with friends and new people, Lifecrowd activities are curated for quality, and the site employs social filtering via Facebook and other personalization methods to recommend activities for users.
"Partnering with Lifecrowd enables us to give people memorable one-of-a-kind experiences at the most exceptional venues," said Eventup founder and CEO Tony Adam. "At Eventup, we aim to help people plan their perfect event by giving them access to the most exclusive and widest array of locations. Now, with access to Lifecrowd's unique experiences, we're excited to see what users will put together."
The first startup to launch out of technology studio Science, Inc., Eventup takes the hassle out of finding unique venues for any kind of event—from weddings, concerts and parties to private gatherings and corporate functions. Users can browse an array of impressive residences like opulent mansions and secluded beach houses to more traditional commercial properties like banquet halls, restaurants and art galleries. Once users are delighted by a location, they can instantly schedule a walkthrough or book the venue immediately, all with just a few clicks.
