As in-person events come back to life, Eventtus brings 10-years of event technology and experience – including an advanced mobile event app – to Bevy’s end-to-end community event engine
Bevy, the only enterprise community event engine, today announced the acquisition of Eventtus. The acquisition adds more than 20 engineers to the Bevy team, including Egyptian founders Mai Medhat and Nihal Fares. It also extends Bevy’s event technology stack with the addition of a mobile in-person conference app, and several other engagement tools for attendees. Once integrated with Bevy’s enterprise community event engine, customers will have the most comprehensive, end-to-end event management solution to manage and scale their virtual, hybrid, and in-person event programs.
“Enterprises have invested in creating connected communities for their customers, employees and partners. Events are not only an extension of these communities but also provide an important channel for driving ongoing engagement,” said Derek Andersen, CEO and co-founder of Bevy. “With this acquisition, we can now further advance our leadership role in enterprise events by delivering an end-to-end white labeled event system of record that helps enterprise leaders build even stronger and more engaged communities.”
Founded in 2012 by Mai Medhat, CEO, and Nihal Fares, chief product officer, Eventtus is an event management software company based in Cairo, Egypt. The Eventtus mobile app helps marketing leaders seamlessly connect the worlds of virtual and in-person events, and provides enterprises with the flexibility they need to return to in-person events, continue taking advantage of lower cost virtual events, or embrace a hybrid model.
“What’s unique about Bevy is how they thread events together. They’ve built a powerful community event engine that helps enterprise teams create a sense of community among their customers, prospects, partners and employees,” said Medhat. “This is what all other event platforms are missing. And it’s the key to unlocking global scale and growth.”
By threading community through events, attendees end up with a better experience, and businesses end up with actionable data. As customer data and privacy policies continue to change, successful marketers are shifting away from cookie based behavioural tracking and instead building communities of customers and advocates using Bevy’s Community Event Engine.
