The additional TRT Dashboard gives you the ability to name your tour, apply filters such as Venue type, genre and capacity by stage, and customize a travel radius for each stop. Plus, if you find a venue that you’re interested in, you can check out their profile which includes the genres they represent, the number of stages and capacity, the social media links.
You can even see the equipment they have so you know what you’ll need to bring.
When you’re ready to pitch an AmptUp Venue, you can use the Messaging Center to communicate with them.
This gives you more detailed information so you know what’s at stake and what you’re negotiating. Plus, when an offer is on the table, you can see it all in one place, and it even goes onto your calendar with the click of a button.
