OYO wants you to plan less and celebrate more.
OYO has launched OYO Auto Party, a separate platform that provides event planning services like banqueting and wedding planning services to its customers.
AutoParty aims to provide an easy to filter/discover venues and service providers for various event types, pax-size, and location. Plus, they also offer digital interface that the user can create a buffet package of his own choice and can get real-time price quote.
Adds Ashish: Event management is a very high touch business and it’d be interesting to see if Oyo can create a scalable service business here. So far, Oyo has scaled up the core business by the virtue of having inventory and building a service layer on top of it – but AutoParty is very very different model (fyi: having an inventory of hotel ballroom is no big deal). It is actually the opposite – service is the only thing that matters. In fact, we just acquired a company in this space (more on that later).
