Event Network is back this month with a very special evening planned. We have the founders of the three of the leading online ticketing platforms in Hong Kong for a talk about 'Event Ticketing in Hong Kong and beyond'. These are Pelago, Ticketflap and Asia Music Fest. Those attending will have the chance to listen to a talk by the founders about the current market trends as well as have the chance to talk to them during the networking event.
Additional sound and lighting support for EventNetwork.hk will be provided by Alibi Productions.
There will also be a lucky draw with prizes from Entertaining Asia as well as Venture Studios Hong Kong (http://www.venturephotography.com/hk/). A Venture experience is much more than just a photo shoot!
The aim of the night is to create an environment where professionals can exchange ideas and be inspired through talks and meeting different industry professionals.

About Asia Music Fest’s founder – Amy Mak
AMF’s founder, Amy Mak, was originally born and bred in United Kingdom. Since moving to Asia, she’s worked with one of the region’s leading event promoters Pomo & Stone, bringing a massive roster of talent from all around the world: Steve Aoki, Ludacris, Ne-Yo, Aly & Fila, Grandmaster Flash, Akon, Markus Schulz, Lil Jon, Deadmau5, Chris Brown, Sidney Samson, Tenishia and John Digweed, to name just a tiny sample of the acts she’s worked with.
She then founded one of Asia’s leading music magazines – BOOM Magazine, which brought her in touch with all the major festivals in the region. The hassles she encountered when trying to sort out her travel arrangements to these festivals led her to come up with Asia Music Fest as a one-stop solution for music-lovers.
“If you enjoy music and partying as much as I do, then music festivals must be on your bucket list of things to do, like it was mine. After going to one, it was like an adrenaline rush to go to another, the party experience just blows you away and you get to meet so many fun and like-minded people! I wanted to conquer a few things that I found problematic - the time consuming process, the high cost involved to go for a few days, the lack of information on the festivals itself, and that's where AMF was born!"
Asia Music Fest is the easy way for fans to book packages for all their favourite music festivals in Asia. Bookmark us as we roll out dozens of exciting packages over the next few months for all the top parties in Asia. Our partnerships with Asia’s biggest music festivals give you the best deals on tickets, accommodation and add-ons - all on one site! http://www.asiamusicfest.com/
About Pelago’s co-founder – Paul Hitchens
Paul is the CMO and co-founder of Pelago, a social mobile events platform that was launched in Hong Kong in 2015. While he started his career in investment banking, Paul’s passion for electronic music led him to organise numerous events over the years. During this time he was struck by the need for a better event marketing and ticketing solution that suited the needs of both event organisers and also invitees. The result is Pelago.
Pelago serves the needs of both small and large event organisers, providing an easy-to-use solution that puts full control of each event in the hands of organizers. Pelago was designed to respond to the needs of those seeking new experiences but also acknowledging the increasingly busy and entrepreneurial lifestyle of people in Hong Kong and Asia.
Since Pelago's launch in 2015, we have worked with a wide range of organisers. Starting from grassroots, we are proud to support new emerging, fast growing, and underground or indie organisers and community builders such as REWIND, BUNKER, DELTA Sounds, Third Culture, BeFastTV, TEST KITCHEN, Soultrains, The Whale Life, Female Entrepreneurs Worldwide and The Hive to name a few. We have also supported larger festivals like the week long Best Of British event on the harbour front and the annual Hushup’s Secret Island Party.
Our plans are to continue to innovate, amplify the social and marketing aspects of Pelago with new exciting features for organisers and event-goers and focus on new partnerships that will help us grow and expand beyond Hong Kong.
