Renowned TV Actor Ashish Kapoor Turns towards Entrepreneurship; Launches a New Event Management Firm

Bengaluru: Ashish Kapoor, a renowned professional of Indian entertainment industry, opens the new venture Addabooking.com, a single platform for all event related services. It’s an online portal for Venue Bookings, Party & Group Bookings, Table Reservations and allied services. Ashish Kapoor became an accomplished actor through daily serials such as Punar Vivaah, Beendh Banunga Ghodi Chadhunga, and Chand Chupa Badal Mein. The actor noted the lack of single platform for bar bookings, restaurants & banquets and it was becoming quite difficult for the customer to call each venue separately. By realizing the huge market opportunity in event services, Ashish decided to liftoff the venture.

Speaking on the launch, Ashish says, “I am very excited about my new venture. With the launch of Addabooking, our aim is to reduce the long cycle of searching Venues and Services. We have also partnered with several service providers and our vision is to make the booking process of venues and services easy and rewarding for our customers. Our strategy is to focus on premium venues and services, including niche services like Celebrity Hosting. Also, we would be targeting corporate segment for organizing event/conferences”.

Addabooking currently consists of more than 600 Banquets and 250 restaurants which include some marquee names like Hotel Taj, Le Merdian, Vivanta, Flyp@MTV, and Lords of drinks and so on. This one-stop shop proffers the customers venue and party booking, where people can instantly browse, compare, select and book the best venue on the basis of various factors such as Amenities, Services, Price, Location, Availability, Ratings and other such preferences. The platform also facilitates price comparison for the selected venues which makes the selection process even easier. Currently operating in Delhi/NCR region, the entity plans to expand in other cities soon.
