WHO WE ARE
Experience-driven Vision and Empathy for Event Organizers
EventHub’s mission is to help organizers maximize their potential revenue from partnerships, by providing them with a software tool-suite to streamline vendor and sponsor management, and by introducing them to new partners through our marketplace. 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. Two major realizations led them to found EventHub: The need for events and their partners (vendors included) to more easily find and match with one another, and the need for a specialized tool-suite to create more efficiencies around vendor and sponsor applications, payments, paperwork, logistics, and mapping off booths and sponsor placements. Our platform is designed to help small teams do more, with free sub user accounts and straight-forward pricing that makes it easy to budget for.
Two elements of EventHub that stand apart from most other management softwares are our event marketplace, and our interactive mapping capabilities. Our marketplace has upwards of 50,000 buyers shopping booth and sponsorship opportunities across the US, Canada, UK, and Australia. These are made up of national brands, marketing agencies, and regional businesses with active event marketing programs.
On the other hand, EventHub offers some of the most affordable and easy-to-use to-scale mapping products on the market. These include a registration view for partners to submit their space preferences within the application, a back-end editor for making real-time layout edits and space assignments, and an embeddable public view that includes a schedule and performers/speakers module.
