Miloco Studios have announced the launch of The Market Place, a brand new listing of affiliated recording, mixing and residential studios spread across the world. The Market Place is not an exhaustive directory of every recording studio but an international selection of high quality studios affiliated to Miloco. The aim is make it easier for clients to find good facilities outside of the Miloco Group, which are nevertheless fully endorsed by Miloco.
The studios that have launched on The Market Place have been carefully chosen to form a global and dynamic group. They include famous commercial studios in major cities, luxury residential retreats in stunning natural surroundings and smaller studios located closer to home, all of which complement Miloco’s existing portfolio.
The countries with Market Place Studios at the time of launch are spread far and wide across England, Wales, Iceland, France, Belgium, Italy, Greece, Austria, Turkey, USA and Indonesia, with other countries (and continents) on the horizon.
Miloco want to make the task of finding the perfect studio easier for clients, and the website enables clients to do this using the studio search tool. Prospective clients can filter studios by type, location and rate, or search for a specific item of equipment by typing in its make, model or by using a general term such as ‘drum kit’ or ‘piano’.
The search results generated by the tool will combine rooms both from The Market Place and from Miloco’s own studio page onto one screen where they can be viewed altogether. Once the studio has been found all booking and invoicing processes can continue through Miloco from start to finish using their experienced office team.
Miloco’s international reputation combined with the company’s intelligent online search tools and other dynamic online features has made their website one of the web’s very best and easiest places to find the perfect recording studio for any project.
“We are really excited to launch The Market Place. Our aim over the past few years has been to make the task of booking studios and running sessions simpler and easier for clients. With the Market Place we feel we have made another important step towards this. We want to promote international standards of quality through co-operation with other like-minded facilities. Ultimately Miloco believes in helping studios thrive and the Market Place is another important step in our plans to make this.”
