I don’t have access to a venue - where can I host my event?
Don't worry! You don't need a venue to submit an event. When you submit your event you can indicate what amenities (Wifi, projector, etc.) you're looking for in a host, and we'll do our best to match you to a venue in our database.
There are no guarantees that Dabble will find a venue, so we suggest you do a bit of outreach as well.
You can host your event anywhere that will support a great experience – bars, restaurants, coffee shops, galleries, shared spaces, parks, and offices of all shapes and sizes. Start with places you frequent (i.e., are you a regular at the pub around the corner?) that might be interested in getting more people in the door (i.e., does your favorite restaurant have super slow Tuesday nights?).
As of 2018, Dabble has launched a national partnership with Peerspace in markets where they are active. Tons of great listings in 15+ cities around the US. We're also big fans of Deskpass and their new hourly booking feature in many cities around the US that Dabble is active.
Here's an outreach template to get you started:
Subject: Host a Dabble Event - Month Day @ Time?
I'm planning on teaching an awesome [TOPIC] event or two > [LINK TO CLASS DRAFT]. I think it could be a cool thing for [VENUE NAME].
Wondering if [VENUE NAME] is up for hosting this experince on [DATE / TIME] in the [ROOM]? I am happy to jump on the phone to discuss (see more info about hosting events here).
Let me know your thoughts! With your approval, I will push the event "live".
