Looking for events in Nairobi? These are the list of Kenyan websites that can hook you up with a fun weekend plan.
Kenyans in general have a social culture and preferably where alcohol is involved, but more often than not you may find yourself at the same local club. Instead of suffering while asking people for plan how about you take charge of your social life and instead check these sites out.
Eventbrite is an American event management and ticketing website and it is one of the more popular websites when Kenyans want to create an event and issue tickets.
For people looking for events, they can search for events according to the event category, location and dates. If it has already determined your location, it will populate a list of events around you and even show you whether they are free or not. For event organizers, there are different packages for one to create an event and the features provided are priced accordingly. They also have apps for both creators and attendees which makes the whole experience quite good. You can understand why this is quite appealing to people. It is a known brand with proper assets (ecosystem with apps) and that is why it will still remain popular.
Facebook is the odd one in this list since it is not a dedicated events website, but a general social network. Facebook is known for piling features upon features that people would use on the daily and one of them is events. Events is one of the major features of Facebook. The company even decided to have a dedicated app for Events years ago which showed how important it is to their ecosystem.
Mticket is another company in this seemingly competitive event ticketing industry and it looks just like the others. You are able to see upcoming events at first glance on the webpage and they are shown in a card format. The dates for the events are displayed on the top right of each card. According to the website, they have shown over 320 events, had close to 61,000 customers and over 1.8 million tickets have been sold on the platform.
Kenya Buzz is currently owned by the Nation Media Group and is diversified form of ticketing platform. They focus on allowing people to purchase tickets for movies online as well as discovering events. The cinema scene in Nairobi has been here for a long time and the system has always been the idea of paying for the movie either before entering the hall or a few days before the screening of the movie. With online ticketing platforms like Kenya Buzz, they allow you to buy tickets easily online and it shows which theater it will be screened. A cool thing is that you can choose seats and you can pay with more partners than Ticketsasa (VISA, MasterCard, JamboPay, M-PESA, Airtel Money, mVisa, Kenswitch and Masterpass).
