PartyWizz is all about helping people create fabulous parties with the minimum amount of time and stress. It enables the busy parent or party organiser to easily book entertainment and sort key areas of the party with more choice, transparent pricing, online booking and secure payment.
Entertainers’ profiles can be reviewed, add-ons such as themed party bags and decorations can be ordered in the same transaction, and all of our entertainers have been hand-picked to give organisers maximum peace of mind.
We’ve listened to hundreds of parents in the development of the platform and the overwhelming feedback is that parents feel they do not have enough time and are under constant pressure, juggling multiple demands. PartyWizz aims to reduce some of that pressure and help all party organisers put on the finest events in just a few clicks.
Having spent 20 years working in the marketing industry, including developing a successful advertising business in Dubai, founder Hamish decided to return to his real passion – magic and entertainment.
Hamish Urquhart – Founder
Hamish has been studying magic since the age of six and has been a part-time magician since his teens. He now continues to perform, but also has a retail magic business, teaches magic to children and adults, and has recently launched PartyWizz.
From his first-hand experience working in the industry, he quickly recognised a gap in the market for a tool for easily booking entertainment. Hamish sees PartyWizz as the perfect outlet to combine his love of entertainment with his marketing and business development skills.
Hamish was hugely inspired by what was happening in the on-demand economy with the likes of Uber, Airbnb and home-grown Hassle – creating marketplace solutions for problems in their industries. This has paved the way for the concept of PartyWizz – ‘The smarter ways to wonderful parties’.
Yvan, being half Irish and half French, grew up near Paris, before moving to Quebec for his undergraduate studies in marketing and computer science. He completed his degree and worked there for 3 years before moving back to Dublin for his master’s degree at UCD Smurfit.
Yvan Zimmermann - Marketing Director
Yvan also happens to be a magician in his spare time. He started learning, studying, and performing magic when he was 16. The passion never left. He still practices and performs regularly to this day.
At PartyWizz, he’s in charge of marketing and promoting the business online. He also takes on some of the technical work to help make things run as smoothly as possible.
