What is eventMEERKAT?

eventMEERKAT is a brand new web based platform to help you find events, venues, artists, planners and suppliers close to you.

Why did we start?

Quite a few people around stuggle to find events happening around them.

Search engines and AI cannot easily track event. As they are uploaded irregularly, on short time frames, on various platform and in various formats. With eventMEERKAT we aim to create a larger core of events in one place.

A mailing service shortens the distance between events and the attendees.

How does it work?

Individuals sign up and receive monthly mails to remind them of events they like in their area.
Individuals can browse the website to find events, venues, artists, planners and suppliers around them.

Companies in the event industry can list their company / band / venue / service for free.
Companies in the event industry can list their event’s text details for free. Event artwork / event posters will be charged per artwork uploaded.

Event artwork will be posted on
the eventMEERKAT website,
eventMEERKAT Instagram,
eventMEERKAT Facebook
& eventMEERKAT Pinterest.

Can anyone join?

Any individual looking for events and suppliers can join.

Any company or entity working in the event industry can join.

Why is there a free and a paid plan?
