HeadBox, the online meeting and event space marketplace, has launched its new HeadBox Business dashboard for corporate events.

And to mark the launch, it has signed up marketing agency Dentsu Aegis Network in an exclusive deal. The deal gives Dentsu Aegis Network’s entire UK group the ability to search, book and pay for more than 4,000 venues across the UK.

HeadBox Business is a personalised corporate dashboard on top of the HeadBox platform that has been designed to help companies manage multiple venue bookings across multiple teams, departments and territories. It aims to deliver complete transparency and budget control for all event budgets and venue bookings, as well as insight into what spend and savings are made across the company or network.

Andrew Needham, HeadBox CEO and founder, said: “We are re-inventing the events industry through technology both by opening up people’s imagination to the different uses of space, and by ensuring the event planning and management process is much easier, simpler, faster, more cost effective as well as transparent.”

“I’m very excited to be working with the UK arm of Dentsu Aegis Network, who as a leader in the digital communications space, recognises that what we are doing will change the future of the events industry forever. The strength of HeadBox Business, recognised by Dentsu Aegis Network, is that it offers a seamless overview, in real-time, of all the event and venue activities of a large company - aggregating them all into easy clusters according to spend, timings, business areas, and departments – thereby gathering and unlocking valuable business data.”

HeadBox Business has proved popular during its beta period, being used by more than 100 blue chip corporates including HSBC, Uber, Farfetch, UBS, Expedia and Mace Plc. 

Ali Lord, events manager at Dentsu Aegis Network UK & Ireland, said: "Delivering engaging, inspiring and creative events for our people, our clients and the wider industry is a key part of our communications approach. The HeadBox platform together with its HeadBox Business dashboard offers us an impressive and diverse range of event spaces while also saving us both time and money. It makes the whole process of event booking really easy, simple and transparent across our growing network of UK agencies.”
