NEWS: CrowdComms/GalaBid Open Hong Kong Office

We’re thrilled to announce an exciting new venture. CrowdComms and sister organisation, GalaBid, have opened a new office in Hong Kong to service the burgeoning events and fundraising market in Asia.

The move sees our two brands strengthen their position in the Asia Pacific region and reinforce a successful period, which has seen the combined operation triple its workforce.  The move extends our global presence, which includes operations in Australia, New Zealand, UK, Ireland and the US.

Peter Hair, CrowdComms/GalaBid Co-Founder and Managing Director, said, “The increasing demand and sheer scale of the opportunity in the Asian market, specifically Singapore, Hong Kong and China, fuels our decision to open our fourth CrowdComms/GalaBid office in the region. The team have been working incredibly hard and are thrilled with this exciting new step.”

Both CrowdComms and GalaBid will roll out their full range of services to the Hong Kong (and regional) events market. In conjunction with development partner, Entegy, CrowdComms will provide event apps; registration kiosks, polling and lead capture platforms.

The CrowdComms and Entegy partnership has been integral to our ability to enter the Hong Kong market. The Entegy Suite provides event organisers with forward thinking solutions for engaging and immersive events. We’re proud to deliver those services under the CrowdComms brand.

GalaBid will service the Hong Kong non-profit industry with its digital fundraising solutions developed in-house.

CrowdComms: Giving Back at Christmas

CrowdComms is a compassionate organisation that prides itself on being community minded. Our sister company, GalaBid, works with hundreds of great organisations each year to raise money for worthy causes.

Giving back is an important part of our group culture and philosophy.

Its why, each year, CrowdComms makes a donation to an awesome cause in lieu of sending Christmas cards.  Not only do we help those in need, but we also make a positive contribution to a sustainable planet by reducing energy consumption associated with paper, printing and transit.

The Smith Family

This year we’re sponsoring two children through The Smith Family.

The Smith Family is an independent Australian charity dedicated to giving impoverished and disadvantaged children the opportunity to reach their potential.

1 in 7 children in Australian live in poverty. The Smith Family work to ensure these children can reach their full potential by participating in education and learning programs.

80% of donations to the charity go directly to fund educational and support programs in literacy, numeracy, mentorship and technology.

As passionate advocates for education, the CrowdComms team couldn’t be happier to provide educational support for two children in need. Our sponsorship will provide textbooks, school shoes, excursions and uniforms – all the things a child needs to feel positive about learning and education.

If you would like to donate or support the charity, you can find out more about their work here.

We would  like to wish all our partners, in business and in life, a wonderful and safe festive period and a very happy 2018.

Buy an Event App Get a FREE Silent Auction App

Yes, that’s right. We’re giving away a silent auction app with every event app bought between now and December 31 2017.

Why?

Because we’re passionate about making a positive difference, and so are the people we work with. We’re increasingly seeing a desire for corporate clients to include fundraising at their events. They want to harness the goodwill and generosity of their attendees to help worthy causes and charities.

Just like a large finance client of ours did. Using the our auction app, they ran their first silent auction within a recent three-day event and raised $60k for charity!

CrowdComms + GalaBid

The CrowdComms family includes GalaBid’s fundraising platform. There’s a great synergy between Crowdcomms’ event technology and GalaBid’s fundraising platform.

While they have different functionality, both are app based, mobile compatible and user friendly. The silent auction app sits snugly within the event app, which means it’s easy to access and use at your event.

GalaBid’s fundraising platform raised over $31m for Australian charities in 2016. In a single weekend in February this year, Galabid helped raise $1.7m! It’s guaranteed to help your event make a real difference to your charity or cause of choice.

And, our offer doesn’t stop at a free auction app. You’ll also receive 24 consignment prize items to get your bidders digging deep.

All you need to do is choose your good cause and promote the auction during your usual event marketing promotions.

Silent Auctions

New to silent auctions?

Don’t worry. The platform is as easy to use as our event app.

Guests can bid in real-time from their mobile device. Handy SMS alerts notify bidders when they have been outbid. This makes sure participants can stay in the race for their chosen item.

When the auction is finished, secure online payment means a quick and easy transaction for the bidder.

Head to the Galabid website or contact one of our friendly team who will answer all your auction questions.

We can’t wait to help you make your events even better.
