[UPDATE 21 JULY] At Backstage Pass, we constantly experiment with new formats to improve the event. But ultimately, we aim to provide an outstanding experience through valuable networking and thoughtful content. We couldn't quite make the magic happen this time, so we're postponing the seventh session of Backstage Pass to early September. We're sorry for the inconvenience caused and hope to catch you at our next improved session!
With the National Volunteer & Philanthropy Centre (NVPC), Backstage Pass invites you to meet Singapore's non-profit organisations, discover the causes they're passionate about, and strike up impactful collaborations!
Bonus: learn growth hacks to sell out your next event's capacity.
Backstage Pass by Peatix is a community event for event organisers - exchange lessons, connect with people who enable events and grow as a group. It's our 7th session in a year!
- Network: We will facilitate networking to match you up with potential partners, be it non-profits or community connectors.
- Learn: We will share growth hacks learned from events and data that boost your ticket sales.
- Engage: We are hosting an experienced panel incl. NVPC and UN Women Singapore to discuss building events for social impact.

Who's sharing the growth hacks?
Nicholas & Ethel will share anecdotal pointers, tips and tricks in working towards an event sell-out! Nicholas leads business development and Ethel leads customer experience at Peatix. Because of their roles, together, they have interacted with over 100 organisers on the ground within different event genres such as theatre, music, dance, design, workshops, startups, parties and more! This experience has lent them an understanding and know-how of issues faced and successful solutions used by organisers here in a bid to sell-out their events. A year since being at Peatix, Nicholas & Ethel now pool their knowledge together to share with you growth hacks to sell out your event from the get-go!
- Am I considered an "event organiser?" Peatix encourages events of all kinds to blossom - anything from tech talks, workshops and classes to theatre, art performances to parties, gigs to private dinners and gatherings. So yes, you're probably one without knowing it.
- I provide relevant services (audio-visual services, photobooth rental, app) - can I attend?Yes, we're an inclusive community. At the same time, organisers prefer to mostly meet other organisers. We require vendors to pay a higher entry of $30 and respect that this event is not a platform for selling services.
- Why can't I buy more than 4 tickets in one transaction? Diversity is important to us - come meet new friends!
- Vegetarian or Halal food? Yes! Please let us know in advance.
- Why isn't the event free? We serve food at wonderful venues. The price is not designed to be a barrier - we offer discounts to students, youths and dreamers.
- What's your refund policy? We understand that things may crop up. Feel free to transfer your ticket or approach us for a refund.
- Can I pay at the door? Yes you can, but at $20.
- Are you looking for partners? Glad you asked - please drop us a line.
- Who organises this? The community team at Peatix Singapore - Fabian Lua and Claire Ding.
