About Poptop

Poptop is the industry-leading marketplace platform for private party experiences. We help people right across the country to take their parties to the next level. We inspire party planners with extraordinary services and experiences from some of the UK’s very best events suppliers.

We offer up a host of inspiring, targeted ideas, recommend the best fits for our clients, and make the booking process swift and easy. Plus, we’re with them every step of the way - helping to make their party experience bigger, better, and bolder than ever before.

In 2020, we revolutionised the modern events industry by introducing two groundbreaking technologies to the market: Instant Quote (a modern alternative to traditional, outdated lead generation) and clear, easy-to-understand service listings (instead of dull and confusing supplier profiles). In 2023, we also launched our own, in-house Poptop party experiences - managed by our expert team and absolutely guaranteed to elevate parties with their unique offerings and unmatched quality.

Our mission is to create ever more memorable parties, bringing people together to spend quality time with the people they care about. Our goal is to become the world's favourite destination for planning private parties.
