Designed by venues for venues

Hostology was founded by a collaboration of five established, independent, venues. Between them they host over 600 successful weddings, parties and corporate events each year, with some 500,000 happy customers and guests to their name.

Designed and road-tested by the founders, Hostology has grown into a sophisticated event management Platform, powering up 1000s of events each year through its seamless collaborative planning software.

We believe that at the heart of hosting is an enjoyable journey, leading always to a successful celebration.  

To champion the venue’s pivotal role in this, we created an online Platform designed for higher event functioning and The Collective to support our peer community. 

We look forward to working together to elevate the art of hosting.

The Platform

Our practices had served us well for years, but an upgrade was calling.

Time to prioritise our client relationships and maximise operational efficiency to deliver exceptional occasions for today’s sophisticated hosts.

We designed THE PLATFORM to optimise the entire hosting journey, then packed it with the features we found lacking in kindred solutions.

Designed by venues for venues, our goal is to make the planning process a joy.

The Collective

From our own experience, we know the value of mutual support.

THE COLLECTIVE was created to provide a community for venue hosts to connect with, and learn from, each other.

Our venue exclusive online forum provides a wealth of information, advice and camaraderie.

Join us for our regular ‘Roadshow’ get-togethers; listen to expert speakers, discuss industry updates, and share tips on everything from surviving the cost of living crisis to coping with your couples’ wedding jitters.

Side-by-side, we boost each other to excel.

“Hostology brings everything in to one place, increasing the efficiency of our event managers, while at the same time creating a great platform for our customers to use.”

Harry & Georgina Dearden, Pennard House

“We now spend much more time with each client, meaning we can offer an even more personal service. This is what we have been waiting for since we opened in 2010.”

Phil and Susie Godsal, Iscoyd Park

“Hostology has carefully thought through how a tech solution can not only make the event management process smoother, saving in time and admin, but can also provide an enjoyable work flow for the client.”

Joshua Dugdale, Wasing Park

“The systemising, streamlining and efficiencies are a game changer for our business and equally will make planning the wedding logistics less ‘dry’ for our couples and their guests – it is a win, win, win!”

Jane Robinson & Samantha Vaughan, Dewsall Court

“Hostology is a fantastic platform that brings the many elements of organising bespoke events under one roof. It has transformed the organisation of our business, saved many staff hours and made us far more efficient.”

Phil and Susie Godsal, Iscoyd Park

“We extensively researched the market to find a software platform that fulfils all the needs we have when arranging events and liaising with customers. Hostology does and is going to massively streamline our business.”

Harry & Georgina Dearden, Pennard House

“So far, I have found the system overall to be really easy to use from our point of view, particularly when it comes to the itinerary.

I think in the long run this is going to save us so much more time to be able to concentrate on the couples and other areas.”
