UberEvents and the Brand’s Inevitable World Domination
Just last month Uber rolled out the food delivery service UberEats around the U.S and, despite the efforts of hackers and competitors alike, Uber’s trail of success blazes on. The new addition to the Uber family comes in the form of UberEvents. UberEvents offers event organisers, party-throwers and hosts everywhere the ability to provide guests with their own private car and driver to the designated event venue – talk about luxury.
How does it work?
So suppose you’re hosting an event and you want to offer your guests the convenience of a chauffeur without the usual price tag, no worries! Uber’s new service UberEvents, allows you to pay for your guests’ transportation. Uber business members can send and receive guest passes via email, and the recipients simply have to use the code they receive to redeem their free Uber ride. As we saw with UberEats, UberEvents is rolling out slowly around the U.S, starting firstly with New York.
“When planning a company happy hour, client appreciation dinner, or even upcoming nuptials, there is a lot that goes into ensuring that your event goes off without a hitch — including how your guests can safely get to and from without any fuss,” writes Uber’s Kimiko Ninomiya in a post for their official blog. Ninomiya added, “We want to make the experience of planning transportation logistics as seamless as ordering a ride at the touch of button…”
Read the Fine Print
Some conditions apply. For example, passes have an expiry of 14 days, you can’t exceed $10,000 dollars on guest transportation for a single event, and guests who take advantage of the service will be required to sign up to the service if they aren’t already members.
Inevitable World Domination
All things considered, UberEvents provides a solution to the age old conundrum, to drive or not to drive? And we think the service will prove widely popular for business events and special occasions alike. The launch of UberEvents marks another strategic move by the Uber franchise that will ultimately drive the brand forward towards what now seems like inevitable world domination.
