Gold Calendar debuts search-by-date technology to the event industry, transforming how events are planned. Gold Calendar is a dynamic online community of the very best, highest rated venues, vendors and planners in the industry. The unique feature, 'search-by-date-technology' allows the end user to search for available venues and vendors based on the date of their event.
"Gold Calendar solves an industry problem," says founder, Auna Jornayvaz. "When planning events, people have to call and email venues, photographers, florists, bands, etc. every time they want to find out if they're available. It takes hours - if not, days - for these vendors to respond and provide the requested information. I partnered with the top boutique luxury planning firm, Colorado Wedding Company and Mary Snider (Columbia MBA graduate and former employee at Travelocity) to create an incredibly efficient resource designed specifically for the very "best-in-class" venues, vendors and planners in each local market.
Gold Calendar is a search by date event website that connects event planners with vendors. Since launching in January 2016, Gold Calendar has acquired nearly 400 vendors from more than a dozen categories and has garnered the favor of luxury hotel brands such as Four Seasons Vail, Vail Resorts, Ritz-Carlton Denver, JW Marriott Cherry Creek and the Hyatt Regency.
Gold Calendar enables planners and consumers to locate venue availability and the availability of the other vendor types commonly used when holding an event. This product resolves the current RFP and phone tag processes commonly found when planning an event. This product also allows hotels and event venues to promote remnant inventory that otherwise would have gone unsold.
"Eager to enhance a two hundred-billion-dollar event industry with a product that will create efficiencies and transparency, Gold Calendar will have a similar impact on the event planning industry as Spafinder, Autonation, Zillow, Airbnb, Kayak have had on their markets. Gold Calendar is making event planning easier, faster and frankly more fun," says founder, Auna Jornayvaz.
