ABOUT ZOOM PARTY - MEET THE TEAM
The Zoomparty.ie idea was born out of the Covid 19 crisis. After numerous corporate clients of Find A Venue out of the goodness of their hearts dropped goodwill messages checking in but also asking if we had any ideas for virtual events. That lit the fire and Zoom party was born. Our Managing director Sean Gleeson is the Founder and brains behind Zoom Party & Findavenue.ie. Most recently he was the Regional winner in the 2020 start-up awards for COVID-19 pivot response category and went on to be shortlisted and represent Dublin in the National startup awards.
With 18 years of sales and marketing experience and 15 years working for numerous Dublin venues, he decided to create a new concept in the Irish events industry in 2011 by launching a free venue finding service.
In these years, he has built up great relationships with thousands of corporate clients, conference organisers and hundreds of Dublin venues and is now in a unique position to advise both corporate clients & venue owners on a daily basis.
He offers a free and impartial venue finding service and expert local advice to meeting planners, associations and incentive organisers looking to host an event in Ireland
Finally finding entertainment options for corporate clients for years makes him a one-stop-shop for engaging and original entertainment for your event or party. Sean’s aim is to make your night a success using all his experience dealing with venues, talent and logistics to bring a fun, stylish and new experience to your clients and employees. He always aims to start with the correct big picture, then take care of all the details and make sure everyone is having fun while doing it!
