Cvent, a market leader in meetings, events, and hospitality technology, has announced its intent to acquire QuickMobile, a pioneer of mobile event apps, based in Vancouver, British Columbia. The acquisition of QuickMobile, with its 100 employees, will broaden and deepen Cvent’s already world-class mobile event app and onsite solution capabilities and help the company extend its reach in the marketplace through QuickMobile’s extensive partner network. The acquisition is expected to close before the end of May 2018.
Mobile event apps are an integral part of the live event experience, facilitating – and capturing – engagement that leads to higher event ROI. By acquiring QuickMobile, Cvent is deepening its commitment to the critically important attendee onsite experience and further broadening its market-leading capabilities.
QuickMobile and Cvent will support the mobile app needs of events of all sizes – including the most complex events hosted by the largest brands in the world.
Together, the combined entity:
“Cvent and QuickMobile are innovators in the mobile event apps space and share a passion for enhancing our customers’ live events through mobile apps that deliver engaging experiences,” said David Smith, CEO of QuickMobile. “We couldn’t envision a better fit for QuickMobile than joining the team at Cvent, a market leader with global reach and scale. We have a shared commitment to develop employees, drive innovation, and deliver exceptional value for our customers.”
“We are extremely excited to add QuickMobile to the Cvent family,” said Reggie Aggarwal, founder and CEO of Cvent. “QuickMobile’s track record of innovation, strong customer relationships, and winning culture fit perfectly with Cvent. We will be laser-focused on continuing to deliver value for QuickMobile customers and look forward to adding the best of QuickMobile’s capabilities and expertise to the Cvent Event Cloud platform. We are also thrilled to welcome the talented QuickMobile team to our 3,000+ Cventers worldwide. Together, we will execute on the mission of delivering cutting-edge mobile event applications that transform live events.”
