SYNQA: Acquisition of Eventpop

Bangkok, August 11th, 2021 – SYNQA Group announced that it has entered into an agreement to acquire a majority stake of Eventpop, a leading platform provider for event creators in Thailand. By combining their resources, SYNQA plans to further strengthen its position as a Fintech company that provides excellent customer experience.

Eventpop brings years of experience in building both software and hardware solutions that offer a seamless customer experience. SYNQA believes that Eventpop can help SYNQA’s group vision to provide access to financial products for everyone across the globe, helping SYNQA to reach users in new creative ways.

Why SYNQA is Excited About this Acquisition

Among the difficulties many companies faced with the pandemic, the event industry was one of the hardest hit industries. To continue to scale the business during these difficult times, Eventpop expanded into new industries that would allow them to leverage their existing technologies such as O2O solutions (Online to Offline Solution) and platform user experience specialization, bringing innovative approaches to new industries.

Prior to the acquisition, SYNQA and Eventpop had been collaborating in the development of an omnichannel E-Commerce platform which focuses on digitizing operational processes and providing a solution where business users can offer products to customers seamlessly. The product is planned to launch by the end of the year.

“Our relationship with Eventpop goes way back, when we first started our payment businesses. In the past few years, we have been partnering with Eventpop, working on projects together. By collaborating in prior projects, we were able to have a deeper understanding of each other’s strengths. By combining forces, I believe we can grow to become a stronger company. I am looking forward to our exciting new chapter.” said Jun Hasegawa, founder and CEO of SYNQA.

Eventpop’s business as an event platform provider will continue to grow under the SYNQA Group, strengthening its platform capabilities to prepare as the world slowly returns to normal. A demand for a multifaceted experience will increase, requiring innovative solutions to provide excellent customer experience. By joining forces, Eventpop will further solidify its position as an event platform provider and SYNQA to grow its product ecosystem. According to Max Pattaraporn Bodhisuwan, founder and CEO of Eventpop:

“We have always been a firm believer in providing the best-in-class technology, intuitive user experience and superior customer service. We also believe in financial inclusion across the board. Enabling everyone with the means to access finance and empowering them with intuitive, easy to use products will help the digital landscape to grow at a much faster pace. Joining with SYNQA will help us to continue to scale not only our event platform but our vision of providing the best solutions to people all over the world.”
