Eventerprise: Connecting the World of Events

Eventerprise is a groundbreaking online subscription network for the global events industry - the first of its kind in the world. Coming to South Africa in October, Eventerprise aims to connect those who are hosting, staging and arranging events of any kind with those providing the very best products, venues and services.

A successful event has many moving parts – catering, content, staging, locations and logistics. Currently, it is incredibly difficult for event organisers to source new, reliable and talented suppliers for the required tasks and, as such, much is left to chance.

Conversely, in a flooded market, the suppliers and professionals who deserve the work often don’t get it - the contracts instead going to the ‘familiar mediocre’.

The Eventerprise targeted matchmaking approach works like a dating portal, pairing needs (corporate or private) with the perfect partner, or combination solution. Because all the Eventerprise Network members are vetted and reviewed by peers, buyers can confidently select those whom will best get the job done.

Charlie Wright and Götz Thümecke, who are the driving force behind the Eventerprise initiative in South Africa, have more than 50 years of combined experience in the international events, sales and strategic marketing arenas.

Charlie Wright comments, “Eventerprise is all about taking the power of ‘word of mouth’ and multiplying up so event buyers can make the right supplier choices with complete confidence. Our brand depends on the quality of the suppliers we list, so we take absolutely no chances.”

Götz Thümecke continues, “Finding the right supplier is challenging and full of unknowns. Eventerprise takes the guesswork out of it by making the right connections. We link those driving the industry - the best practitioners there are - to those who need exceptional experiences delivered again and again.”

The Eventerprise service is free to event buyers. Listing services for event sellers are competitively priced, with 6 and 12-month subscriptions ranging from R950 to R1200 per month.
