Global enterprise community event engine, Bevy announced the acquisition of Eventtus, the Egypt-based event management software startup. This acquisition adds more than 20 engineers to the Bevy team, including Eventtus 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.
Founded in 2012, The Eventtus mobile app helps marketing leaders seamlessly connect the worlds of virtual and in-person events with integrated features like virtual networking, virtual booths, interactive tools for live streaming sessions, real-time analytics, and smart ticketing and registration system.
Both Bevy and Eventtus have taken community building through connection as their venture purpose, integrating technologies and creating hybrid virtual solutions in the process. “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.”
Once Evventus gets 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. Cofounder Mai Medhat highlights the distinct differentiator and the potential of this new acquisition as she comments “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. This is what all other event platforms are missing, and it’s the key to unlocking global scale and growth.”
