SEATTLE, Sept. 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- A new website offers users the chance to say their wedding vows under the watchful gaze of a gigantic Pacific Red Octopus or perhaps sip champagne while adorable Sea Otters frolic next to an ice sculpture. Once, only a venue to be rented by Seattle's elite, the Seattle Aquarium can now be rented by the hour with just a click of a button at PlaceFull.com.
PlaceFull, a brand new event space rental website created by 2 former Microsoft execs, announced they are now open for business. Ryan Hamlin, CEO, explains PlaceFull allows any kind of consumer or event planner to find, compare, and book exclusive venues and party packages on their own, without the need for endless phone calls and back-and-forth conversations with space owners.
For business owners, PlaceFull allows them to list their available spaces free of charge, sharing only a modest percentage of their rental when a customer reserves their space. Hamlin explains that it's an easy way for businesses to increase revenue by offering their private spaces for rental to the public.
Hamlin points out that the site is designed to help a busy mom looking for a fun birthday party for her child, a corporate admin planning a teambuilding event, or a bride searching for the perfect wedding reception site. His team built a simple, intuitive search engine to allow users to view photos and descriptions of event spaces, get information about package deals, find out about specific amenities, and then book their space for their event, instantly.
Did we mention the bunnies? PlaceFull boasts over 300 space partners in the Seattle area, and plans on expanding into other markets soon. The options are varied and range from bringing a truckload of bunnies to a corporate function, racing go-karts for a bachelorette party, or sipping fine wines at a winery. Art galleries, hotel ballrooms, glass-blowing studios, bowling alleys, indoor bounce houses, basketball courts, and conference centers are just a few of the venues customers can find on the site. For the budget-conscious, PlaceFull's search engine allows users to narrow their search by price so everyone can find their perfect party or event space without breaking the bank.
Hamlin, a busy dad, says he founded the site because he was exasperated trying to find gym rentals for coaching his sons' basketball teams. Ryan imagined a website where he could find gyms to rent but it quickly grew to include spaces for birthday parties, wedding receptions, family gatherings and more. The PlaceFull team, based in Seattle, is made up of busy parents, event planners, and community members who believe there's a better way to find the perfect venues for all of life's celebrations, big and small.
