Vendoir is an on-demand app which launched publicly in Nov'22, enabling easy sourcing, booking & management of event suppliers. Our mission is to create a global, diverse, sustainable, and inclusive community for stress-free events. With 24/7 access to suppliers and a user-friendly platform, we cater to digital natives. With the UK event industry valued at £70Bn, we believe we have immense growth potential.
Committed to net-zero carbon emissions by 2040, we aim to reduce emissions through remote supplier sourcing and plan to introduce a secondary marketplace to minimize waste and an event carbon footprint tracker to support sustainable events.
Vendoir is a cutting-edge marketplace with vetted suppliers, secure transactions, and reliable reviews. We have a comprehensive event planning solution and our future plans include the launch of AI-driven efficiency enhancements, and introducing exciting new app features such as customer pricing, expense sharing solution, and a fan page for suppliers.
Substantial accomplishments to date
We believe that Vendoir has achieved remarkable milestones since its app launch in November 2022. With 10K+ app downloads in just a few months, Vendoir has quickly gained traction. The platform has expanded its waitlist presence to 50 countries within six months, which we believe demonstrates a strong global demand.
We have seen strong early revenue growth between Q4'22 to Q1'23.* With over 100 successful bookings, Vendoir maintains a cumulative rating score of 4.8/5.0 on IOS and Android platforms.

Additionally, the company is committed to sustainability and plans to achieve net-zero carbon emissions by 2040 through carbon reduction strategies and a secondary marketplace for used event items.
We believe Vendoir is poised for further growth. The company aims to expand in the UK, launch a sustainable secondary market, implement AI for efficiency, introduce new app features, and drive international scalability.
We believe that Vendoir's accomplishments, user base, revenue growth, and industry recognition highlight its momentum and potential. Vendoir aims to disrupt the event industry projected to be worth $2.2 trillion globally by 2028.
Vendoir generates revenue through a commission-based model, charging a 10% fee on transactions made by planners, organizers, and businesses booking event suppliers on the platform. It plans to introduce a monthly subscription for premium accounts, providing enhanced features and a tailored event-planning experience.
In the future, we will look to earn commissions through partnerships, leveraging the user base and services of industry collaborators. These strategies create a sustainable and diverse revenue stream, enabling Vendoir to provide services, improve the platform, and expand its reach in the event planning industry.
As Vendoir grows it will look to onboard more supplier types and expand its services to other countries which will potentially bring numerous benefits, including a broader customer base, global partnerships, learning opportunities, and competitive advantage. By capitalizing on these opportunities, Vendoir hopes to accelerate its growth and become a prominent player in the industry.
