Venue Connect began in 2011 when a small group of veteran meeting planners and hoteliers joined forces and started a company called Zentila. They knew all the challenges of venue sourcing from firsthand experience. And shared a belief that the right technology could revolutionize an industry. Zentila launched its innovative venue sourcing solution.
The mission was clear: Streamline the complex process of finding and booking meeting space from start to finish. And make it easy – for both planners and hotels.
Zentila grew fast, driven by strong demand for a simpler path. The technology earned rave reviews from customers. And nabbed top industry honors, including multiple Travel Weekly Gold Magellan Awards for innovation.
This new generation eRPF technology caught the eye of industry leaders. In 2016, Zentila was acquired by Aventri, a global leader in data-driven event management solutions. Today, Aventri’s Venue Connect continues to help planners connect better with hotels, negotiate the best deals and book incredible meetings and events. When you take the easier path, you can accomplish great things.
