At Venopi, we believe that the story behind each location matters. For today’s blog post, we are excited to welcome Your Space in Amsterdam on Venopi!

Greenhouse at Your Space

Located in the central canal district in Amsterdam, it is a one-of-a-kind, multiple story canal-house. Featuring three beautifully designed rooms for you to move between as you like, it is an ideal venue for meetings, workshops, and gatherings of any kind. Your Space provides a truly unique one of a kind experience, catered specifically to your team by being super flexible and working with you to achieve exactly what you want!

Below is our interview with Natalie, one of the owners of Your Space. Let’s get to know Your Space better!

Why did you start “Your Space”? What motivated you to do this project?
Long story short, we were at a bit of a crossroads a couple of years ago.
Quite unhappy in our work at the time and looking for something we could do together that made our hearts happy. After a bit of soul searching and reflection, we realised what we really wanted to do was to look after people.

We think excellent hospitality is undervalued and we wanted to create a place that not only warms and welcomes but also inspires!

What do you think is one of the most exciting features of your venue that sets it apart from others?
Hands down, our service 🙌

The fact that we value good old fashioned hospitality and recognise how hugely our support and nurturing can impact the outcome of a meeting, workshop, or whatever people want to get out of their time here, and experience they have while getting there. As well as the still mind-blowing fact that we are home to about 240 living indoor plants!

Can you tell us a hustling experience you have related to Your Space?
We are awful hustlers! Business development does not come easy to either of us, so this is still a work in progress, to be honest. We have, after a year, finally perfected our elevator pitch though! 🌈

How do people currently find and book your space?
We get most of our bookings directly through our website at the moment, and often those come through word of mouth from clients who have spent a day/days with us!

What kind of events have you hosted so far? What kind of events you’d like to host that you haven’t done?
We’ve hosted a really diverse range of meetings, workshops, training, and events here. For companies of all sizes as well as individuals looking to share what they love!
Hands down our favourite thing to host are Design Sprints. Hosting groups for multiple days and seeing them really make themselves at home is extremely gratifying. We think the space lends itself so well, both functionally and atmospherically, to the creative and limitless vibe that’s encouraged during a design sprint.

How much does each booking cost approximately?
Our pricing starts at €495 for a half day.

Can you suggest Venopi a feature to work on that will improve your work speed or get more bookings?
Showcasing our venue to your subscriber base via newsletters and articles just like this one :)

Why did you decide to list your space with Venopi?
We love that you seem genuinely motivated by solving customer problems. Listing a variety of spaces that meet a huge range of people’s different needs really appeals to us.

Anything new or exciting that you are working on and you’d like to share with us?
We are officially one year old now and working on a few things that will continue to elevate our offering and make our clients lives even easier.

Nothing is ready to announce just yet, but exciting things are coming to stay tuned!
