At the end of last year, we shared the news that changes were coming on in 2017. Our goal has always been to deliver the best online platform for finding great event venues and reaching out to trusted suppliers for quotes, menus, and contracts. But we’ve heard from many of our customers that the problem with online search, is that it takes A LOT of time! Scouring pages of options, checking website information to see if something is a fit, viewing photos that can often times be misleading, visiting review sites to see if the provider is reputable, not to mention the time is takes to contact multiple locations, follow-up, sign contracts and then plan the event! Who has time for all that!?

We do! So we’re taking things offline to offer a more boutique, customized approach to sourcing. With our new Sage Sourcing service, we do the time-consuming part so you can do the fun part…picking and planning!


Introducing our new service: Sage Sourcing. A people-powered search engine!

So all you have to do is select your favourite option and sign the contract.

We love to brainstorm new ideas, keep up-to-date on recently opened hotspots, and connect you to trusted industry veterans. We’ll guide you through the selection process and provide tips for taking your event from good to great! Then all you have to do is plan and execute. (And we can help with that too! Check out our Sage Support page.)


Here’s how it works…

1) Tell us your requirements.

Our team of professional event planners review your event details and needs. Then we start brainstorming, brainstorming, brainstorming to come up with ideas as unique as your requirements.


2) Your Sage Personal Planner contacts upwards of 10 venues or other providers.

We evaluate fit based on 3 criteria: purpose of your function, set-up requirements, and alignment with your guest or company demographics. We check availability, negotiate costs, obtain contracts, compile menus and anything else you need to make a decision.


3) Within 2-3 business days, you receive our sourcing summary in a shareable presentation.

Your personal Sourcing Summary includes up to 3 viable options that fit the best with your overall needs as well as images, write-ups and recommendations from event professionals. Delivered in a shareable report to make collaboration a breeze.


Starting at $19.95
