The event tech company is also revealing new growth metrics and its ranking on Deloitte Technology Fast 50 and North American Technology Fast 500
TORONTO — The world’s leading event technology platform, EventMobi, is announcing today the launch of Advanced Designer, a new feature that gives event organizers unprecedented branding and visual control of their apps. The company is also announcing year-over-year growth metrics as Deloitte reveals its Technology Fast 50 and Technology Fast 500 lists today, both of which include EventMobi.
With the launch of Advanced Designer, EventMobi is the first event app provider to offer advanced custom app designs in real-time. Think WordPress of event apps.
Event planners and marketers are tasked with designing memorable experiences. While they have control over their event design, they’ve been limited by what they can do with their event app. Most event apps on the market have limited visual customizability, making it difficult for event planners to match the visual branding of their event to their event app. As a result, many event apps end up looking identical!
Advanced Designer allows organizers to offer a truly unique mobile experience for their attendees at a fraction of the cost of fully custom apps. Part of EventMobi’s revolutionary App Design Studio, this new feature empowers event organizers and designers to create custom designs for their apps in the same way they’d create a custom website. Any web or graphics designer with knowledge of CSS is able to make changes in real-time to the event app design directly through the content management system of EventMobi platform.
“As more events leverage advanced technology like event apps to enhance attendee experience, it is essential that event marketers and planners are able to maintain consistent brand control and design across offline and online experiences at their events. Being able to have this level of design control on event apps is critical to corporate events and specifically for third party event agencies tasked with creating unique digital experiences using event apps,” says Bob Vaez, CEO of EventMobi.
The App Design Studio is a standard offering as part of EventMobi’s suite of products and Advanced Designer is available as an add-on including optional professional services.
The release of Advanced Designer coincides with tremendous growth for the company, which has been recognized today by one of the world’s largest professional services firms, Deloitte. EventMobi has ranked #31 on Deloitte’s definitive list of 50 fastest-growing tech companies in Canada, as well as #253 on its list of 500 fastest-growing tech companies in North America. EventMobi platform was also named “2016 Best Event App” at the Event Tech Awards in London on November 9th
Entirely bootstrapped, EventMobi is also announcing a number of growth metrics, including a 395% increase in revenue (based on CAD) in the last three years. Other growth metrics are:
8.5 million attendees have used EventMobi apps to date, with 350% user growth over the past 3 years.
More than 12,000 event organizers and marketing professionals have used EventMobi to create event apps.
The company’s team has grown from 25 employees to 90 employees in the last 3 years.
EventMobi is expanding its international reach, specifically in Latin America and Europe, with direct sales staff in Toronto, Canada and Berlin, Germany. The company also has global channels throughout the Asia-Pacific, Middle East, South Africa, and across Europe.
“Our tremendous growth in the last few years is a product of the entire team’s focused commitment to delivering the best possible event experience for event organizers and attendees worldwide. At the nexus of events, hospitality, marketing and technology, industries that are all rapidly evolving, it’s crucial to stay innovative and nimble. I’m very proud of our team for stepping up to that challenge, and as a result we have been able to scale quickly and organically. It’s an honor to have this growth recognized by such a prestigious entity as Deloitte alongside so many companies we admire,” says Vaez.
