US event management platform Accelevents, Inc has announced the acquisition of High Attendance (for an undisclosed amount), a virtual event platform based in Tampa, Florida.
The acquisition follows a strategic partnership formed in September 2022 between the companies which has seen Accelevents technology for in-person events used by High Attendance customers.
Accelevents has now absorbed the High Attendance customer base to provide a unified event management experience that includes badge printing, mobile apps, lead capture, and event registration tools.
“Accelevents is a firm believer in the crafted, not cobbled approach to product management. Ensuring every organiser, attendee, speaker, and exhibitor has a seamless experience across virtual and in-person events is core to our DNA. The team at High Attendance have deep industry experience and relationships which open new doors for Accelevents in the mid and enterprise segments,” said Jonathan Kazarian, CEO at Accelevents.
The expanded business will serve over 12,500 organisations globally and it forecasts supporting more than 3 million attendees in 2023.
“For organisations seeking to host in-person, virtual, and hybrid events, Accelevents has a considerable edge over competing solutions. It provides the most comprehensive and cost-efficient enterprise event management platform based on my 20 years of experience in the industry,” says Christopher Justice, CEO of High Attendance, Inc. “We are excited to bring our companies and cultures together to serve and grow our global audiences.”
