What does your venue offer?

What sets your arts venue a part from other venues in the city?

I want to focus briefly on two features you may not be aware of in Atlanta Spaces: multiple listings and a search feature that allows you to look for spaces that have musical instruments available.

An organization can have a public landing page about all their rentals that links to the listings. A great example of this feature in Atlanta Spaces is The Georgia Ballet’s page.

This is useful if the end-user knows the name of the organization he/she would like to search. From the homepage, I typed in ‘Georgia Ballet’ in the top right search bar (appropriately titled: Search by Name). Their page looks good, right? I can see a Google Map, a summary of studio spaces and some basic contact info. If I want to know more about a specific studio space, I can click to an expanded description. Easy.

What if I need to find a space that has a piano for an upcoming event? Say my husband and I want to rent a space for our upcoming 15 year wedding anniversary (December 27). From the Atlanta Spaces homepage, I look on the right side under “I need a space for…”  and click special events/parties. I am going to choose to stay within a 5 mile radius of my house. I hit search and get back a list of several companies that offer space for special events. BUT! I still need that piano. I notice that the search menu has more options.

I am now going to click on “More search criteria.” Bingo! I know see an option to search venues for a performance piano. Several organizations fit the bill. Now I can really narrow down venues for that anniversary party!

To recap: you now know you can view multiple listings within the same organization profile AND you can search venues for specific musical equipment. So… why isn’t your venue listed on Atlanta Spaces?
