Eventhread

eventhread-logoEventhread is a new web app that alerts event goers about upcoming events that are relevant to their specific music tastes and location.
The app looks into multiple event data sources and generates personal event recommendations based on user’s favourite artists, genres, venues and location. The recommendations are then delivered straight to the user via web app and email.

Unique Selling Point

We mash up various event, location and music information services to deliver personalised event recommendations based on user’s tastes, interests, budget and location. Our unique process allows us to deliver rich listings featuring more event information than on other platforms which helps users decide on which events to go to. We save users time by sending tailored weekly recommendation emails on a user’s selected day, so she does not have to proactively search for events and can let our platform do the job.
