Partner: Parties planned with what3words and yada events

More and more people are staging weddings, festivals and VIP events in ever more remote and surprising locations. Fortunately, what3words is now working with events app, yada, to help organisers plan their experience more efficiently and with even greater accuracy.

Hosting the main event

yada is the ultimate events app. From a wedding to a festival, a Freshers’ week party to a full-on concert, they can help you plan, manage guest lists, share content and run your event smoothly from start to finish.


Party in a field

Whilst many events are organised in pre-determined locations, others occur far from city centres, where location and addressing becomes unreliable. Planning a festival in a field, where the only way to describe the main entrance is “past the pub, opposite the third lamppost but before you reach the T-junction” can become a major logistical problem.

Smoother event operations

yada has integrated the what3words service into their app, to ensure that guests can always find their way. 3 word addresses can be provided for every key location of an event – from a stately home front gate to the location of a beer tent in the middle of a field. Guests can see the address and get directions to the precise 3m x 3m square.

For individuals, that means a wedding couple can specify that their ceremony will take place at polka.agents.custodian, followed by drinks on the beach at comply.worth.universe and music in the marquee at rigs.mystery.afford.

For companies running live events, festivals and VIP conventions, the organiser can specify the 3 word address for key locations on site. That way, they can plan an itinerary, safe in the knowledge that staff, headline acts and invited guests will always know where they should be.

And once the party has come to a close, yada encourages attendees to share their photos of the event on Facebook and Instagram, tagging each image with the precise 3 word address location.
