Imagine a city the same size as Nashville, Boston, or Seattle, entirely made up of event planners and performers. Right now, that’s how big GigSalad is: 650,000 event planners and nearly 60,000 performers and service providers. GigSalad.com features talent from 584 individual categories of musical acts, entertainers, speakers and other event-related services for hire.
With over 1 million monthly visitors, GigSalad.com has made it easy to find and book live local entertainment for corporate events, weddings, parties and other gatherings. The result is over 4,000 booking requests processed each day, and a fanatical following among their performers and event professionals.
The roots of GigSalad date back to 2004 when CEO and co-founder Mark Steiner directed his Connecticut-based talent booking agency. “We were flooded by calls from artists looking for gigs, and from buyers seeking to book artists. The problem was that we couldn’t efficiently connect the two sides.”
And that’s when he and co-founder and designer Steve Tetrault created GigSalad, to provide event hosts with a singular place to find entertainment and services for their unique needs and budgets.
“The event industry needed a tech solution to this problem,” says Tetrault. “Innovators had responded to similar needs across other industries, and we've done it for event planning. GigSalad is now facilitating amazing parties and gatherings across North America, while helping talented people make a great living doing what they love.”
Adds Steiner, “GigSalad is defining the event booking marketplace. We have expanded a challenged industry and have proven to hundreds of thousands of event planners that hiring live entertainment can be easy and efficient. We’re thrilled to be part of helping the world move towards more meaningful events.”
