Requesting a Quote from a Venue is when you enter in your booking criteria, and reach out to the Venue about your interest. You might pursue this option if you have an event that you would like to plan entirely from scratch in collaboration with the Venue. The Venue will receive your request and either ask some more questions, or return a proposal to you that they have created. You can access the proposal or view the status of your requests from your My Events dashboard once logged in. If you would like to move forward with the event that the Venue has outlined in the proposal, you can then accept the proposal - a legally binding contract - and continue to collaborate with the Venue on the details, such as set up, menu, and payments.
With ExpressBook, you are selecting from prepared experiences which have already been "approved" by the Venue, and therefore require much less work to be confirmed, which is why its the perfect option if you are in a pinch or just don’t have the mindshare to devote to planning an event from scratch. Once you select your time and dates, you will be prompted to put down a 50% deposit. At that point, the Venue will receive your ExpressBook event, and have 48 hours to accept the event. Once they accept, your card will be charged and your event will be completely booked!
