About Us

UTALAN

          

          Founded in 2020 in New York, from a small start up to becoming one of the fastest growing entertaining booking platforms in the world. Part of Utalan.com is to make it easier, faster and safer for everyone looking to book artists, model, influencers, musicians, and public figures.

 

It hasn’t been easy with the rise of scam bookings out there; many people are finding it difficult to find a safer platform to book and manage all their events and shows on one platform. Our network spans millions of buyers and sellers and becoming one of the world’s largest platforms for independent workBuilding this platform has required a willingness to challenge orthodoxies and reinvent the booking platforms out there, safely. We will always put our customers first and will continue to invest a lot of time and money to make sure everyone on our platform enjoys the comfort and assurance of their funds being protected. Taking this step means that we have even greater responsibilities to our shareholders, our customers, and ourselves.

We recognize that every time you visit our app or website, you’re trusting us to connect you with a trusted third-party seller or buyer.

Yves Bagaza

CO Founder and CEO- I’ve been interested in entertainment ever since I was young- joining local dance groups, recording my first rap song at age of 16, and later becoming an event promoter. When I became an event promoter, I found out how difficult it is to book a performer, celebrities, hosts, etc. or even get in contact with them. There was always a ton of paperwork, middlemen, and even scammers. That’s when I realized that something was missing- this is how I came up with the idea to create Utalan. A universal platform that allows promotors to book celebrities, venues, models, influencers, dJ’s, photographers, etc. Safer and faster.
