It’s been an exciting first few months for SpaceFinder Toronto since our launch in November 2014. SpaceFinder Toronto has reached over 400 listings with a variety of spaces for artists and creative types across the city – from theatre spaces to unique galleries to a pirate ship. But the best news of all is that this online venue finder is being used by our artists and is earning our spaces additional rental revenue.
To celebrate this milestone, we are sharing some of our most exciting stats about this tool to date.
SpaceFinder Toronto has generated over $15,000 in rental referrals for venues using the online space request form!
That means the 21 venues who have adopted the online booking feature – and offer this convenience to renters looking to discover space – have received collectively over $15,000 worth of rental requests…and that’s not counting all the phone calls and email requests!
Spaces are taking advantage of listing features
- 26 spaces have synced their online calendar to their space listing

- 4 spaces are taking online payment through the booking engine
