Priava, the world’s leading venue and events management software company, has announced that they will be expanding their U.S. office to help manage increasing demand in the U.S. Market.
Since opening their U.S. office in New York in February 2017, Priava has been overwhelmed by the response to their cloud-based solution from venues all over the United States. In the past twelve months, they have welcomed new clients from California, Florida, Oregon & Ohio, as well as Washington D.C. and New York. As a result, the company is expanding its sales and marketing team and welcomes Jason Velez, who brings with him a wealth of knowledge about the industry and the U.S. market, to lead Priava’s continued focus and customer expansion.
Jason, who has previously held a variety of sales and operational leadership roles for high-profile sports teams and entertainment venues in the region such as Madison Square Garden and The New York Mets, will take on the role of Business Development Manager – Venues and Events, to help existing and prospective customers to understand the benefits that Priava can bring to their organisation.
Having previously worked in roles that focused on sales, marketing, management and operations, Jason understands the importance of streamlining and automating all of the processes that go into managing venue and events and will help Priava’s clients to utilise the system to its full capacity in order to increase their staff productivity and venue occupancy levels and, in turn, improve their profitability.
Jason commented, “Having worked for a number of large-scale stadiums and arenas, I have experienced first-hand how important it is to have the right systems in place to help staff to do their jobs to the best of their ability and in a timely manner. This is why I am so passionate about Priava.”
Jason is passionate about using technology to systemise administrative tasks, so that staff can invest their time and energy in the things that matter. “Too often, venue and event professionals get overloaded with administrative tasks when their time would be better spent focusing on managing the events and working more closely with their guests to ensure that everything runs smoothly,” says Jason. “Priava supports users at every step of the venue and event management process – from the initial enquiry, right through to producing post-event reports. Using Priava, events teams can work smarter, not harder and this will help them to grow their businesses, improve revenue forecasting and maximise their overall profitability. This will be a game changer for venues all across the United States.”
