At HeadBox, our purpose is simple. We connect people and spaces to make brilliant things happen.
But it's not always been straightforward to hire or host at an amazing venue. In fact, prior to our launch in 2015, it was the exact opposite. Our business was born from frustration at the outdated, slow, inefficient and time-consuming venue booking process that anyone looking to book a space had to endure.
Our CEO, Andrew, experienced this process first hand, then he had an idea. What if there was a simple, quick and seamless way to open up thousands of amazing, underused, unknown spaces and connect them with people looking to hire a venue? How could technology bring this new concept to life, making it as simple, secure and straightforward as possible? And so, HeadBox was born as the UK's first transactional marketplace for meeting, offsite and event spaces.
Since then, our purpose has remained unchanged but we've uncovered more challenges faced by company events departments, venues managers and people looking for a space to create something brilliant. We've spent the last few years becoming obsessed with our customers and their problems so that we can build products, tools and features to make their lives easier. Think of it as humankind event tech. Our ecosystem of products makes event and venue management simple, secure and transparent, whether you want to hire or host.
