In our Winter 2017 issues, we’re featuring the tech companies that were part of the 2016 ibtm America TechCollective in partnership with DAHLIA+. Because we can only fit so much in print, read on here for our full interview with Eric Schaumburg, founder/CEO, Eventrio.

Eventrio is an online marketplace and management platform for organizers to simplify the event experience for their exhibitors, sponsors and suppliers.

What are some of Eventrio’s outstanding features for meeting/event planners?

Eventrio helps organizers collaboratively design the sponsorship and event experience for their partners. Organizers quickly create a branded event marketplace, send customized packages, and capture passive revenue, while tracking real time engagement analytics. We also help the buyers determine their objectives for sponsoring and help match them to the best opportunities available.

What was the inspiration for starting Eventrio? When was it founded and where are you based?

Eventrio has been a project we've been working on since 2006 to help make the experience better for the exhibitors and sponsors. We are strong believers in helping organizers create the best experiences possible through transparency of data. We are based in Kansas City with a presence in Washington DC.

Do you have any numbers/figures/percentages you can share related to the technology that would interest planners?

Fifty percent of a planner's time is spent looking for things. Customized sponsorship packages increase event revenue by 40 percent. Here is a link to an entire infographic we've put together.

The Hilton Dallas Lincoln Centre completed its $24 million renovation of the entire hotel and conference center. Renovations began in 2020. 

The North Dallas conference center hotel renovation includes a full redesign of all 503 guest rooms, lobby and public areas, and food and beverage outlets. Additionally, the hotel’s 55,000-square-feet of meeting space was updated with new furnishings, technology upgrades, and the addition of a new 6,600-square-foot Lakeside Ballroom. 

 

Anchorage is a city like none other—making it a popular choice for hosting meetings and events.

Through the tall windows of the Dena’ina Civic and Convention Center in Anchorage, meeting attendees can gaze out toward Cook Inlet, which stretches all the way to the Gulf of Alaska and toward mountains—some snow-capped—representing several ranges. They may even see an eagle fly by or see one of the 1,500 moose that are said to roam Alaska’s largest city. It’s easy to see why it’s said that Anchorage is a city like none other in the United States.

 

In early June, the City Council of Tyler called a special meeting to name its Rose Complex's conference center. The center will be called the W.T. Brookshire Conference Center after the iconic grocery store founded and headquartered in Tyler. 

"Brookshire's tradition of outstanding service was instilled 90 years ago when W.T. Brookshire made the decision to place the customer as his top priority," says Mayor Don Warren. 

After the name was announced, attendees for the momentous occasion signed the complex girders to commemorate the occasion.
