  • Hello, My name is Brian Simmons the CEO and Founder of EventSlice
  • She was frantic – the venue was the biggest hurdle – price, size – location. All done remotely. It was causing a ton of stress between her and her fiancé – and her and her sister- who is my wife – and by the time the event rolled around – everyone was pretty edgy, tired, and the effort had taken it’s toll.
  • After witnessing this I created EventSlice! EventSlice is a service platform to book a full event – venue, planners, caterers, entertainment, etc. for weddings, birthday parties, corporate events and more. Our vision is for people wanting to plan an event to come on to EventSlice – pick a date, a desired location, a budget and automatically EventSlice will put together your dream event.
  • •No Need for Website- An EventSlice profile can take the place of a Website, allowing Venues & Event Professionals to easily update it with pictures, videos, pricing and descriptions as needed.  •Save Time –It limits the time spent on email and phone calls answering general information on availability & cost, the entire process from start to finish can be completed online, even accepting payment. •Track Invoices Event Professionals can Create quotes, keeps track of upcoming events, invoices, payments, and due dates.  •Automatic Payment –Clicking on the “book it” tab prompts Customers for payment via Credit Card, securing the rate and date instantly. Eliminating the need to follow up for pending payments. •Increased Visibility –Thanks to EventSlice’s mass marketing effort we increase traffic and SEO to drive business. •Benefits to End Users: •Book Online – No need to even pick up the phone or email!
