Visit Bergen Venue Finder Delivers a Boost to the Event Planning Process

Categories: Our News

Simpleview has completed the development of a new conference site for Visit Bergen with a host of new search and display functionality to boost the efficiency of the event planning process.

The site includes a new Venue Finder facility to help the sales team for the Bergen Convention Bureau handle the large volume of enquiries from event organisers.   

The Venue Finder allows visitors to the site to perform sophisticated searches based on venue type, be it a conference or exhibition centre, museum, restaurant, boat, hotel or somewhere totally unique, eliminating the time-consuming calls and enquiries that the team has been handling until now.  On the new site, event organisers can quickly refine their searches to find venues meeting their exact needs.  

The option to search by room layout too removes another layer of complexity for the Bergen Convention Bureau sales team.  So, for example, once the venue type has been selected, they can choose theatre, classroom, boardroom, u-shape, banquet or reception layout.

The product search results show all the information that event organisers could possibly want. For example, if the organiser is looking for a hotel, the number of bedrooms, maximum theatre, classroom and banquet seating and drinks reception capacity are all displayed in a clear and intuitive manner.  Site visitors can then drill down further to a detailed product page for the venue to see a map and directions, a table showing the capacity for each of the rooms at the venue, the facilities available and What’s Nearby.

Gjertrud Coutinho, Digital Media Manager at Visit Bergen comments: "The volume of enquiries that the convention bureau handles meant that it was time consuming to be able to respond and suggest relevant venues.  We needed a solution that could improve both our internal efficiency and the level of service that we provide to event organisers. The new Venue Finder ticks both boxes and feedback so far has been really positive!"
