Suppliers - How it works
1. Register to create a profile
Your profile appears in the ‘Contact’ section of your business Listing.
2. Create your listing
This can include images, company description, video, contact form, your social links, link to your website.
3. Create your storefront (optional)
Do you offer hire products? Choose a package with a storefront. Your listing and storefront are connected.
4. Start receiving enquiries
Customers can message you, click to your website, or follow you on Social. We also send shoutouts for quote requests.
More targeted than Google Adwords

Our users are actively searching for services in your region.
Simple to set up
There’s no maintenance. Simply update with new images whenever you want.
It's where your customers are
Event planners are time poor. They want choice and a fast quote. We provide both.
Save time: filter unwanted quote requests
Filter out unwanted enquiries by stating minimum order, unit costs, if B2B only, and delivery areas.
Optimised for browser search
Just like your own website, your Listing & Storefront on Designed for Hire is optimised for browser search – it’s another way for customers to find you.
Event planning is done globally. If your website isn’t ranking in search results internationally, you’re missing out on customers.
If your website isn’t hosted in English, you’re missing out on valuable traffic.
