The event industry in Nigeria is one that never runs out of business, no matter how the economic situation of the country might be fairing. Events are held all through the week, and people are always on the lookout for event planners to help make the day a success.
This need is what EventPlanner.ng wants to meet.
Eventplanner.ng is a marketplace that helps customers plan their events online and remotely by providing them with a wide range of event vendors to select from.
Through the platform, users can search for all event-related vendors using the search feature that helps to narrow down search results by state, city and category. They are also able to negotiate with vendors through a messaging system, book the products or services of these vendors through the secure booking platform, request for event planning service, track the planning process and event budget spend with planning tools available on the platform.
The platform offers users a wide range of vendors to select. From makeup artists, photographers, caterers, dj, MC/Compere, decorators, videographers and many more. Through the platform, they are also able to view the vendor’s location, how much they charge and what they offer.
According to the EventPlanner team, “We put the power of an event planner in your pocket. We make it easy for you to find all the vendors you need, book them, pay them, and manage every aspect of your wedding or event – from anywhere. No matter the event you are planning; be it weddings, birthdays, anniversaries, corporate dinners, corporate retreats, corporate parties/launching, we work hard to make planning your events fun and easy.”
The event industry is becoming a gold mine in Nigeria, with the large number of events that hold everyday. Offline, the market is saturated, and a lot of people have become event planners, offering event planning/management services. But online, the service is still relatively new, with just few players. EventPlanner definitely has a chance to dominate this space.
