Eventz International, a Finnish-British technology start-up which develops and operates Eventz.today Platform for wide spectrum of industries such as government & local government, media, and tourism & travel, is happy to announce its newly signed agreements with the Regional Council of South-Karelia.
Eventz International will supply its Eventz.today EventCalendar® version 3.0 to the Regional Council of South-Karelia. New digital event guides introduce an intuitive way to find out what’s happening in the city. A local business management allows the regional council to offer its local businesses a platform to promote themselves in various ways on the service, and people and businesses a way to announce their events.
Mikko Lintunen, CEO of Eventz International Corp. said:
“South-Karelia Regional Council is an excellent example on how to save costs, provide better and more accessible services and engage local people and businesses with the regional and local councils. We are very happy to be able to provide an amazing event service platform in Finland with its wealth of content. By taking our solution into use will greatly improve the discovery experience for citizens and ability for local businesses to promote their services free-of-charge. Most importantly this also allows citizens to contribute and make the whole region more fun and accessible to all”
The city portal of Regional Council of South-Karelia will be launched to public later this year.
