Company Summary

Small-medium events attract over 400 million attendees per year - triple that of large events. Yet, corporate sponsors who spend $16.7 billion targeting large events cannot cost-effectively reach this larger audience. Planana aggregates small-medium events into a target-able network for marketers. Planana aggregates these audiences by solving the most pressing problem for organizers, which is promoting their events.
