NEW venues and products for events

We love finding out about new venues and products for events and we know you do to! What better way to ensure maximum attendance by hosting your event at a hot new venue that your guests are dying to check out. Or perhaps impress your guests by using the latest entertainment or product that is going to take your event from good to AMAZING!

Finding the latest and greatest venues and products can be tricky… So we’re making it super easy for you by creating this fabulous page all about NEW!

This page is not part of our main directory and that’s because it’s reserved only for NEW venues and products. Venues and products featured here must have launched within four months of first featuring on the website and will be removed after three months.

It’s also free for venues and suppliers to list their details here, because we don’t want to deter them in any way from getting involved. We’re here to help you and if this helps… then we’re happy with that.

If you are interested in contacting any of the hot new venues or products listed below, follow the links and please let them know that you discovered them on Event Birdie (you may find them in the main directory soon enough!).
