Company Summary

The event promotion industry is a $24B industry (in North America alone) yet the event industry is highly fragmented and not being served. We help content publishers tap into this market and generate new revenues. Using our Local Events Platform we bring a new category of advertisers (event promoters) and content (events). Our patentable, cloud-based platform integrates with content publisher's existing properties seamlessly with minimal effort.
