Coconnex announces ambitious charity initiative


The AEO Award nominated event software supplier has set its sights on becoming an industry leader in not only technology but in social responsibility too. 

Event management software specialists, Coconnex, has today spoken of their exciting link up with social enterprise charity, Buy One Give One (B1G1).

From new business – contract renewals all the way through to demos and even enquiries – Coconnex will be donating money each time to B1G1, who will in turn use the money to positively impact the lives of those in need. 

Coconnex who provide live floorplans, integration with CRM and bespoke networking platforms for a host of event businesses worldwide believe working with charities like B1G1 is the perfect way for a business to make a positive impact on society. 


“Through B1G1, we can link our business activities to powerful, high-impact projects that help to change our world,” commented Chandresh Pala, founder of Coconnex.

“From giving seeds to farmers, a child an education or a person in need urgent healthcare, our work in this industry now has a positive impact on our planet.”

“Giving is at the very core of Coconnex values,” continued Pala. “With every piece of new business we do, with each contract renewal and even every demo we carry out and enquiry we receive, we donate to B1G1 and give our clients a certificate to show the positive impact on someone’s life their interaction with Coconnex has had.” 

Going forward, the company even has plans to add charitable donations for each payment they receive on time from their clients. 

“We think it will be a nice incentive as well as a way for us to say thank you to our clients,” added Pala.

Coconnex has made over 240 donations already this year and will be giving even more to charity this month after winning a contract to be the major tech supplier for four Airmic risk and insurance management events. Here, they will provide interactive floorplans, plus online registration, booking and networking platforms. 

B1G1 is a social enterprise and non-profit organisation with a mission to create a world full of giving. Unlike conventional giving models, B1G1 helps small and medium-sized businesses achieve more social impact by embedding giving activities into everyday business operations and creating unique giving stories. Every business transaction (and as a result, the business’ day-to-day activity) can impact lives for as little as just one penny.
