Gigapp Technologies has announced the launch of Parteup.com, a digital platform that enables party or event organisers plan, create, promote, and sell tickets to their clients.
Parteup.com, powered by Gigapp, is the latest solution to be introduced as part of the company’s ongoing strategy to channel relevant solutions to address challenges faced by African businesses, especially after the disruption by the Covid-19 pandemic. Party planners can also live-stream their events to users on the platform thus attracting more attendees.
“Since the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic, the impact on business has been unprecedented with multiple national and global events having been postponed or simply cancelled. On the flip side, the pandemic has forced the events industry to adopt a virtual model basically overnight. This digital rush has forced companies to show up and be more real with their audiences, break boundaries and provide more intimate access for consumers that’s unbounded by geography, and that is what Parteup.com is centered on,” says Emmanuel Nabuora, Founder and CEO at Gigapp Technologies.
Event attendees can log in on parte.com, search for parties within their locality, and stream events in real-time. They can also order any type of drinks online and have it delivered within minutes to their locality. The platform charges a small fee for party planners or event organisers to promote their gigs on the platform and doesn’t charge any fees for free events.
“We do not aim to replace traditional event companies, but as a virtual event startup, we are uniquely positioned to capitalize on the digital transformation that is unfolding and open to working with traditional event planners on adapting as the trend continues,” adds Nabuora.
According to him, digital events have one big upside, they can provide better, more precise and actionable data that can help brands improve every aspect of the event and provide a more personalised and meaningful experience.
