EventConnect has revealed a new brand focused on bringing together technology needs for tournament organizers in one unified platform, representing a new era for the company to combine sports tournament management and hotel blocking in one platform.
“Since the fall of 2020, our team has focused on one thing: building all the features that today’s modern event organizer requires to build back their business and prosper for years to come,” said John D’Orsay, chief executive officer of EventConnect. “Starting to build our Housing Connect solution under our technology stack over 10 years ago has given us an unbelievable headstart in the market. With the addition of the EventSuite features over the past 18 months and the completion of our all-in-one platform, we are seeing growth that was never previously imagined.”
EventConnect connects thousands of rights holders, tournament directors and accommodations on one platform, working with more than 4,000 events and 20,000 hotels in over 800 cities across North America. The platform is customized for each partner’s needs and is seamless for organizers and participants to use.
“Our customers were telling us the same thing: they were tired of jumping from platform to platform to run their operations and wished there was an all-in-one system that could manage everything,” said Eric Vardon, president of EventConnect. “We couldn’t be more excited to finally reveal our new brand and communicate fully on what we have been working hard to develop. As a marketer at heart, my goal is to create brand awareness and messaging that EventConnect removes group travel tournament pain points with a feature-rich event management platform that instantly connects to hotels with dedicated support from real people.”
