WHO WE ARE
Experience-driven Vision and Empathy
EventHub helps events to increase sponsorship revenue and save money managing sponsors. Our Co-founders Michael and Jamie have spent a collective 20+ years in the events industry. Their experience spans managing nationwide sponsorship activations for global brands across sporting events, festivals, fairs, and expos — to producing entire festivals — and everything in between. They came to two major realizations about event sponsorship: That it should be easier for events and sponsors (vendors included) to match with one another, and it should be easier for events to manage their partnerships once a match has been made. These core beliefs comprise the backbone of our sponsorship platform.
When Covid came along, our team realized the need for sponsorship-integrated virtual event programming, and quickly adapted to the challenge by creating a virtual expo. Our virtual expo has been used by everyone from the world’s largest races and non-profits, to famous musicians, to some phenomenal community-based charity groups for fundraising events. Whatever the future holds for the events industry (and we think we have a good idea), we’ll be there to help events maximize their sponsorship revenue while keeping their bandwidth free for what matters most: creating amazing experiences for their attendees.
