Our weekly tech round-up from the world of ticketing and associated industries…
Simplifying talent booking
AmptUp, a new all-in-one booking app for venues, has simplified the talent booking process – from scheduling and negotiating contracts, to managing payouts. The company found that it took an average of 13 emails between artists and talent bookers before putting everything in place. The app is aiming to replace this time-consuming task, meaning venue owners and bookers are able to save more time.
The power of live events
Start-up GIGMATE has launched a new free app to tackle loneliness through live events. Having worked in live events for more than 20 years, GIGMATE founder Rob March developed the idea for the service during the COVID-19-induced lockdowns, after live events were halted. GIGMATE was launched last year to bring people together through a shared love of music, by matching users and allowing them to engage with each other based on their preferences.
