London Monday 18th June 2018 – Evvnt, the events marketing automation platform today announced they have entered into an agreement for a $450,000 investment from three US newspapers, TBC Media, Trib Total Media and the Sun Coast Media Group.
‘’Trib Total Media is excited to partner with Evvnt as both a business partner and investor. We believe the integrated solution to event marketing will help take our business and that of our clients to a whole new level” said Jennifer Bertetto, president and CEO of Trib Total Media based in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.’’
Evvnt is focussed on empowering event organisers and venues of all sizes, to manage and promote events data across the industry’s largest ecosystem of event listing sites, calendars, directories, ticketing, social networks and search engines from one single platform. Over the last year, Evvnt has worked with 30,000 customers in 139 countries and is setting its sights on the US.
This $450,000 investment will support Evvnt in their mission to enter the US events listing market as they begin to release event calendars and revenue generating services for the news and publishing industry.
“The moment we started working with news and media companies in the US, it was essential to build close relationships and to have three leading US news organisations invest in our business, use our services including events calendars, premium products, CMS tools as well as becoming resellers and also using the service on their inhouse events is very exciting.” said Richard Green, CEO & Founder of Evvnt Inc. He went on to say, “with this investment and our new friends in the US we intend on introducing our services to the 9660 news publishing sites across the US that pay for non revenue generating licensed services that cost publishers money, it’s time for change and Evvnt is well positioned to drive this new era”
Evvnt is a dynamic and growing aggregator platform solution in the global B2C and B2B event listings (publishers) market. They look determined to replace incumbent traditional events listing calendars with a platform dedicated to generating millions of dollars of new business advertising revenue from the events industry as consumers continue struggle to find good events at a local level.
From a simple event submission, the Evvnt platform based on SaaS technology automatically creates a selective listing of publishers specific to the events category and location making it far easier for events organisers to get their events seen and ensuring consumers can find local and relevant events quickly and easily via search.
“I was introduced to Evvnt via an industry angel event and as soon as his presentation was over I gave Richard my card and said we wanted to invest. Our concerts division will do over 150 concerts in the next twelve months and Evvnt solves a huge problem in how to create awareness of events from search engines.” David Dunn-Rankin, CEO at Sun Coast Media Group based in Tampa, Florida
Active publisher partnerships are already in place with global and US groups including Hearst, ITP Publishing, TimeOut, Morris Communications Inc and Metro.us, while strategic product integrations include Eventbrite, Ticketmaster, Universe, Spokenlayer, Bandsintown and Yext Inc.
