In our Winter 2017 issues, we’re featuring the tech companies that were part of the 2016 ibtm America TechCollective in partnership with DAHLIA+. Because we can only fit so much in print, read on here for our full interview with Eric Schaumburg, founder/CEO, Eventrio.

Eventrio is an online marketplace and management platform for organizers to simplify the event experience for their exhibitors, sponsors and suppliers.

What are some of Eventrio’s outstanding features for meeting/event planners?

Eventrio helps organizers collaboratively design the sponsorship and event experience for their partners. Organizers quickly create a branded event marketplace, send customized packages, and capture passive revenue, while tracking real time engagement analytics. We also help the buyers determine their objectives for sponsoring and help match them to the best opportunities available.

What was the inspiration for starting Eventrio? When was it founded and where are you based?

Eventrio has been a project we've been working on since 2006 to help make the experience better for the exhibitors and sponsors. We are strong believers in helping organizers create the best experiences possible through transparency of data. We are based in Kansas City with a presence in Washington DC.

Do you have any numbers/figures/percentages you can share related to the technology that would interest planners?

Fifty percent of a planner's time is spent looking for things. Customized sponsorship packages increase event revenue by 40 percent. Here is a link to an entire infographic we've put together.

Event planners often schedule meetings and events in natural places near wilderness areas, at waterfront resorts, and at mountain event spaces. But there are many ways to bring nature into your events by making use of the architectural concept of biophilic design, which can be defined as seeking to engage most people’s innate desires to affiliate with nature in the modern built environment. If you think of yourself as an “event architect,” you can use nature to stimulate the senses. 

 

It won’t be quite the same as ordering a pizza or nachos to be delivered to your front door but getting eats at venues is taking a leap toward convenience with a new collaboration: DoorDash has become ASM Global’s “On-Demand Delivery Platform” partner, launching at ASM Global’s top North American arenas, stadiums, theaters, and convention centers in the coming months. The partnership will allow attendees to skip traditional lines by leveraging DoorDash services to order within the arena for pickup.

 

The latest Global Business Travel Association (GBTA) Business Travel Recovery Poll revealed that business travel is surging forward and international travel is returning alongside the challenges of rising fuel prices, inflation, supply chain disruption, and the war in Ukraine. In addition, corporate travel policies are undergoing a revamp, and a large majority of employees indicate they are willing to travel for business.
