in hong kong we have printed travel guide books that make millions every year.
i know there are plenty of existing platform for event ticketing, there are also meetup/eventbrite for people looking for event, there are also lonely planet/timeout in the market and facebook has a event search engine built in as well. but i dont really see any integration that combines all of the great features.
i am looking for a tech startup, that is a platform provide a event calendar for a city, with detailed search engine(important), also guide/review fits for tourist and locals (it’s more about journalism than tech here) , and also with a ticket selling service. would it be a great idea? i’ve been to london and san francisco and more travel city, and i live in hong kong which also the big city. i think people always feel bored or look for ‘what-to-do’ all the time, and i want a general platform that people can actually look up everything available, they can filter the pricing, the age range, or even find out what volunteer works out there, there’s also a great business opptunity for other business promoting their event.
i know it maybe to big to discuss on, but i would like to know if there any company already doing good at it?
i am a fullstack enginner and have a little of editor experience, collecting event data seems the hardest part in the idea, but once it grow big enough should be self sustainable by user submit data.
