SPARE WORKSPACE AND VENUEMOB ANNOUNCE MERGER
Australia’s leading online marketplaces are joining forces to become the No 1 platform to find and book meeting and event spaces in Australia
SYDNEY, November 22, 2019 – Spare Workspace and Venuemob announced today the merger of their companies to create one of Australia’s largest platforms to discover and book event, meeting and training spaces around Australia. Helping over 5000 businesses, collectively Spare Workspace and Venuemob have handled over $300 million of enquiries since their inception.
Founded in 2015 by Jake Dimarco, Spare Workspace helps businesses to easily book on-demand meeting and training spaces online by the hour or day. Venuemob has been connecting Australians with the perfect venues for their events in just a few clicks since 2012.
With over 6000 unique spaces to choose from, customers will find the perfect venue for events ranging from a small meeting to a large-scale corporate conference. Their merger will make them the No 1 online platform in Australia to find and book event and meeting space.
“Spare Workspace’s growth over the past four years has been astounding,” says Spare Workspace CEO Jake Dimarco. “With our industry-leading booking platform, we’ve taken a difficult and time-consuming task and made it super simple. I couldn’t be more excited to join forces with Venuemob and offer our customers a wider range of venues to meet all their needs. Customers won’t need to look anywhere else. We will be Australia’s biggest one-stop shop for event, conference and meeting spaces.”
Both companies have raised capital from major Australian and global investors. By coming together under Spare Group, they will now have dedicated teams in both Sydney and Melbourne to better serve customers with personalised recommendations and support.
“We’re thrilled to join Spare Workspace to create an even stronger presence around the country,” says Venuemob Director Adrian Bunter. “This merger will only strengthen our success. Our shareholders are incredibly excited about Jake taking on the role of Group CEO. He’s proven to be a strong leader in the industry and will no doubt take both businesses to the next level.”
The company will continue to operate both brands into 2020, with an exciting roadmap in place to integrate both businesses in the coming months. “We will continue to innovate and transform how customers discover and book their events and meetings around Australia,” says Dimarco. “We expect our growth to be exponential across both businesses. Watch this space.”
