Who We Are

Founded in 2018, BLACE operates a rapidly growing marketplace that is changing the landscape of booking space and vendors for events in New York City and Los Angeles. Pulling from an exclusive catalog of luxury spaces and its extensive network of preferred vendors, BLACE has created a marketplace that matches property-owners, vendor services, and clients to produce memorable events and activations. The BLACE platform seeks to remove the often-frustrating, manual processes of event booking and replace it with an intuitive, streamlined digital solution. BLACE is seeking bright, tenacious new employees to join its team and improve its digital offering.
