Developing within and growing out of London’s largest film, TV and photographic location library, Canvas began in 2011 as a free-to-list encyclopaedic collection of venues specially dedicated to the events industry.
Thanks to our parent company, Location Collective, Canvas has access to an all-encompassing database of over 3,000 prestigious properties built up from a core membership of film location managers.
Up until 2013, Canvas matched up event clients with a hand-picked selection of these properties and received a commission for our comprehensive service.
Canvas made the decision to take a major pivot in its business
model in late 2012. We are moving away from being a venue finding agency
working on a commission basis and instead beginning to operate as a comprehensive pay-to-list event venue directory. Now owners pay Canvas a fee to advertise their venues within our online database.
Canvas is still very much a part of The Collective Group; a three-pronged, unrivalled and cross-industry organisation that also encompasses Location Collective and Focus Photographic Locations.
