The Viennese event-marketing platform Eventiply has announced its public launch after extensive testing. The platform helps to promote private or professional events, acting as an interface between social media platforms, email marketing and personal websites or blogs.
In a one-year-long beta phase, more than 4.000 invitations of 300 events have been sent out via Eventiply. The test version, however, was only available to a select group of people. CEOs Matteo Savio and Stephan Petzl, who started the project together in spring 2011, now want to establish their tool on the international market. Their vision for the near future includes “a plan to integrate more event directories and prepare for the German market,” Savio told inventures.eu. Although the platform is currently available in German only, one of the team’s main priorities is to develop it in English as well.
On Eventiply, users can register and choose between a free account (for private events) and four premium models. “We are happy to present a tool that makes it easier for organisers and agencies to plan their events,” said Savio.
The Viennese startup, currently a team of five, is sponsored by departure with 70.000 euros (read more about it here). Back in 2011, Savio and Petzl received funding from the aws, and were also awarded the “Rising Stars” award at Startup Live Vienna in 2012.
Eventiply seems to come with a user-friendly spin. The way it works is, once a registered user, you can create your own event. You can give it a name, specify the venue, date and time as well as the ticket information and price. Once the event is published, it can be posted on websites and social media such as Facebook or Twitter. Eventiply also allows you to invite and choose the recipients, and provides access to some of the event’s statistics.
More on the events front
Other Austrian startups, on the other hand, make it easier to keep up with the eventscene. Evntogram, for example, helps concert-goers find the events they like, while Eventphant – an Eventiply partner – offers users an interactive map with all the events near them.
It seems like you’ll never be bored again. Go socialise!
