FAQ's

Who uses OccasionGenius?

Companies such as Altria, Dominion, Capital One, Genworth, and 35 others use OccasionGenius to plan their team outings and holiday events.

Is it necessary to offer a discount?

Many businesses opt to include a discount or value add. This is completely optional and is not required to list on OccasionGenius. If you do offer a discount, you can attach any terms you choose.

Do I have to sign in to respond to inquiries?

No sign-in is ever required to respond to inquiries sent through OccasionGenius. Planners will reach out to you directly either by phone, by our email system, or by going directly to your website.

How do most planners reach out?

92% of actions taken by planners involve going to the business' website directly. Only 8% of them use the OccasionGenius inquiry form. Don't worry, we'll let you know how many are coming to your site!

What are the approval criteria?

The OccasionGenius team approves listings before they are posted. Please fill out the form to tell us about your business, and we will give you feedback. Often our team will suggest ways to tweak an existing experience into something eyebrow-raising - we have helped businesses create glow-in-the-dark yoga and blacklight soccer tournaments. We also make sure that pictures are high quality, crisp and accurate.

What if I need great pictures?

OccasionGenius is a very visual site. Without great pictures, people will move on to the next idea. Since businesses may not have a budget for high-end photography, we have decided to help them by taking great photographs ourselves by bringing a staff photographer to take photos of the space or of an event.

How will I know how my listing is performing?

We'll tell you! Transparency is one of our core values. Every business receives a report telling them how many people are interacting with each listing, and in what ways. This way when you change a photo or price, you'll be able to measure the impact on your listing.

Can I cancel any time?

We prefer a year commitment so you can see the benefit of the site. Most private events are booked months or years in advance. But if you need to cancel, we'll understand! We want to be a breath of fresh air for small businesses. Reach out to us and we'd love to connect you with more milestone and corporate planners.
