We are connecting people planning special events such as weddings, birthday parties, reunions, and reliable, affordable, and available businesses operating in the events planning industry. Our online platform will also supply small businesses operating in the events planning industry with clients, thus we will have to keep them in business and have a dependable income. The platform will also improve these businesses' brand visibility by marketing the businesses. The businesses include designers, tailors, makeup and nail artists, florists, catering and deco businesses, equipment rentals, speakers, transport, and security businesses to mention a few.

Businesses are on the verge of closing down due to not having clients due to poor marketing of their businesses and operating in a small market. Our platform will provide a bigger market for these businesses to operate in. Our customer is businesses operating in the events planning industry such as photographers, makeup and nail artists, florists, catering and deco companies, equipment rentals, designers, tailors, entertainers, security and transportation companies to mention a few, these businesses will be hosted on our online platform ( app) and be supplied with clients and improve their brand visibility by promoting them. Another problem is that people struggle to find reliable, affordable, and available businesses to render the services they require when organizing special events. We are providing a simplified process of finding the ideal service providers for event planning. Thus, people will be able to plan events within their budget since they will only be connected to businesses asking for the price within the client's budget, also convenient because we are providing an easier way to plan events. The online platform also has the potential to connect clients to businesses globally.
