Updated: Jul 12, 2016 12:42 IST

Mumbai, July 11 (ANI-Businesswire India): BookEventz.com (previously Urbanrestro) is India's largest event booking portal for booking venues, caterers, photographers and artists. Honed by a group of passionate individuals, they aim to make event planning a much easier, smarter and quicker experience for all. The Company has grown impressively in just under 3 years with a focused growth approach, constantly multiplying vendors network and burgeoning customer base. Today, BookEventz is slowly sealing its position as a leading player in the industry by not only making venue booking a fun-packed process but also offers packages at guaranteed best price to the users.

In the past six months, BookEventz has grown five times, going from 800 inquiries a month to a whopping over 4,000. This impressive growth reflects the consistency with which BookEventz delivers on its promises. The event-booking portal allows its users to select from a wide range of venues, artists, decorators, caterers, event organisers and a whole lot of professionals for their events. Newer categories, such as photographers, makeup artists, mehendi artists and anchors have been added to offer wider range of services. To keep pace with the skyrocketing inquiries, BookEventz has completely automated the inquiry management. Using UR Event Booker, the site can now check availability of venues and professionals. This not just saves time but also greatly increases accuracy.

Ms. Shriti Chhajed, Founder, BookEventz said, "We had started BookEventz with the vision to make it India's premier events-booking portal. We have consistently walked in that direction. This huge spike in business is the result of detailed planning and impeccable processes. We've always controlled our fund usage, keeping in mind that this is still a young industry. More ambitious milestones are set, meeting which, VC funding will get easier to obtain. We've focused on our product, creating a large vendor ecosystem and optimizing our resource utilisation to keep the deliverables attractive and competitive. Inexpensive, innovative marketing avenues have helped keep the cost low. We have set high goals for the rest of the financial year and with our careful planning, we are confident of achieving them."

The portal has kept itself vibrant by going to illustrious B-schools for hiring interns and employees. It keeps young ideas and thoughts flowing in, which makes BookEventz the spirited company that it is. Already present in 11 Indian cities, with a portfolio of 2500 venues, 2000 vendors and having catered to more than 40,000 customers, BookEventz is setting the benchmarks that newer entrants will find tough to beat. If this growth is any indication of how the rest of the year will pan out, BookEventz looks like the startup story everyone must track. (ANI-Businesswire India)
