EFFRO relaunches online events marketplace

New-look hiring platform now includes Singapore, Malaysia and Thailand.

B2B events hiring technology EFFRO has officially re-launched in Singapore with a new look and platform.

Effro 2.0 aims to brings together event organisers and service providers in an online marketplace to ease the pain of sourcing talent and services.  

Through the platform, clients can connect with talent and vendors via a chat-to-hire function and a review-and-rating system, in an effort to ensure match-making system is effective.

The Singapore-based company was started by Adam Tan, who, after working as both an event organiser and a service provider, set out to resolve many of the issues that businesses face when hiring talent and renting venues.


“Organising an event can be a frustrating process, but EFFRO wants to be a partner to help make the process as effortless as possible for our clients,” Tan says.

“While EFFRO’s looks and functions may have changed, our commitment to helping clients find only the best talents and vendors for their events has not, and will not change.”

Since its inception in 2014, EFFRO has received more than S$300,000 in investment. It currently has 1,200 talents and 300 clients on its Singapore platform and recently launched its platform in Thailand and Malaysia.

Further expansion throughout the Southeast Asia region is also planned.
