Business: An app where users can explore and book top experiences in major cities around the world.




Founded in 2019 by Oliver Andersen-Cox and Sam Duarte Davies, Ping Culture helps people discover and book amazing experiences in a range of cities across the globe. The startup was created after co-founder Oliver spent time traveling, realising there wasn’t a decent app to help travellers find and book great experiences within the area.

When initially starting Ping Culture, Oliver was faced with numerous challenges – the first being to develop his coding skills to create what the app is today. During this time, Oliver was also working two full-time jobs, and was having to juggle these whilst also developing the app. The co-founder comments “Given that I looked forward to working on my own company, this really helped me push through the crazy work hours.” 



Using the COVID-19 pandemic as a time to learn and reinvent, the Ping Culture team have emerged with a product they’re all immensely happy with. The app now offers an innovative loyalty system they hope to see help the hospitality sector as it recovers from a challenging past year.

Today, Ping Culture is the go-to app for helping people find and book top events across a number of different cities – including London, Brighton, Cape Town, Manchester, Dubai, New York, Las Vegas and more.

Oliver comments that: “Being a start up we are able to work closely with all our venues and put on events which not only market the app, but showcase how incredible these venues are. In doing so we’ve been able to meet some amazing people in the industry which has only made us more determined to become the best hospitality app in the world.”

As we start to emerge out from COVID-related restrictions and cancelled events, Ping Culture is one to watch for 2022!
