A seasoned event professional with over 30 years experience, Founder and Chief Experience Officer, Dawn Williams is the epitome of collaboration. After a ten-year career as Director of Event Sales and Marketing for The Denver Center for the Performing Arts, Dawn has been the driving force behind the Greater Denver Venue Network (GDVN) group since the inception in 2009. An active and enthusiastic community leader, Dawn has become the de facto “matchmaker” of Colorado’s event industry, connecting venue directors, event planners, marketers and administrators with qualified venues, vendors, more.
For a natural connecter like Dawn, what once involved sending a few qualified email introductions a week, she realized the community around Colorado’s event industry was continuing to grow, creating a bottleneck for both planners and venues. VenuHub was created to quickly and effectively connect event hosts with the venue in real time. Think of casting a net for information with one form.
“There are many venue directories where an event host can sort through gorgeous photos, fill out a form and then wait to hear back from the venue. VH is unique in that it was built with a reverse search mentality to save time and energy for all. I believe that if someone is planning an event and the date is firm, there is no reason to search for a venue if it’s already booked. VenuHub takes the most important information (date, locale, guest count and budget) and instantly sends that information to appropriate venues,” says Williams. “You only hear back from those that can help you and that is a win-win!”
