Emma Hardcastle
Founder | Hostology
 
In 2018 Emma and five established and successful venues - Elmore Court, Iscoyd Park, Wasing Park, Dewsall Court and Pennard House - came together to design and develop Hostology, a venue-centric event management platform - www.hostology.co.uk

Hostology takes a collaborative approach, helping the venue to involve their customers in the detailed planning of their event; itineraries, menus, supplier and guest management.

The Platform has collaboration at its heart, offering workflows that fully involve the customer, helping them to check supplier compliance as well as full guest management across dietaries, accommodation and covid consent. Ultimately, the aim of Hostology is to free up the venue team, allowing them to focus more time on their customer and developing their core business.

Prior to Hostology Emma conceived, developed and successfully launched several business (SaaS) platforms and innovative consumer services; working at major publishing and digital brands Macmillan Publishers, AOL and Science Navigation group, as well as innovative startups such as Production Wizard, Screen Library and Pocket Issue.

During the pandemic Emma and the Hostology team have doubled down to focus on, hosting 23 well-attended sessions through the Hostology Collective to help venues to navigate finding financial support, legal, HR and marketing advice. The teamwork closely with the WVSG, ABWB and are involved with the UKWedding Task Force. All this alongside delivering important improvements to the platform for 2021!
