SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 4, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Buddy Drinks, the popular and seamless gifting application for celebrating friends and family around the world, expands their platform to a three-prong portal approach to re-invent social commerce for corporate vertical at Outside Lands 2016 in San Francisco from August 5th-7th.
In addition to their regular gifting platform that includes drink vouchers for friends and family, the platform has expanded to include a white label program that allows businesses to create a custom gifting platform within their own digital properties at large-scale events like Outside Lands. An International CPG brand is offering concert goers at the 2016 music festival the opportunity to send drink vouchers to their friends while at the event.
