Event apps are increasingly becoming popular for their ease and offerings that help simplify event planning and communicate messages to attendees with a single click. We have a candid conversation with ROHAN NAHTA, founder of Eventostrings – a leading event & wedding planning app and tech platform about their journey, and how their technology platform can benefit event managers.
Meet The Team
Rohan, tell us a little bit about the journey – how did the idea come about?
Before starting Eventostrings, Vivek and me were into diamond processing (Surat and Mumbai). It was in 2015 when I was in Mumbai; the idea of such tech platform came in my mind. I used to be the unofficial event planner for all my family functions, and I always wondered if there is any tech system, which could help me deliver an amazing experience to guests attending and at the same time making my work easier and automated. When we dug deeper, we found that more than 80% of event professionals in India are either using excel sheets or paper work, with no or minimal use of technology. So for better understanding of how tech can be useful for event professionals, we started working with them. That’s where in August 2017, we started Eventostrings (Eventoviti Solutions LLP), and started working on the product. In 2018, June we launched our 1st beta product to market and then in October we released our final product with guest app and planning tools.
What does Eventostrings actually do and how can an event manager benefit from the platform?
