Event Pop is a Thailand-based events management and ticketing startup. It provides a range of services – from customizable web pages for events and digital and physical ticketing to event check-in tools, as well as analytics. In April, the startup launched its first fintech play in the form of Spark, which offers a cashless payment solution for event organizers in the country.
Competitors: Thaiticketmajor, Peatix, PouchNation, Loket
How it compares to competitors: While some similar platforms focus only on ticketing and cashless payments, Event Pop operates like an ad hoc support team for organizers, providing online and offline customer support, on-site services in relation to admissions and assistance with seating, and customer relationship management.
Event Pop claims to have served over 3,000 events including festivals since its 2015 launch. It says new products and services will roll out in 2017, aimed to improve online marketing for events by better understanding an attendee’s interests, spending habits, and post-event behaviors.
