Acquisition will expand Cvent’s industry-leading portfolio of mobile event technologies to enhance the attendee experience, generate meaningful sponsorship opportunities, and drive increased event ROI. 

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:

  • Serves more than 25,500 customers, including 80% of the Fortune 100
  • Has delivered 16.7 million app downloads
  • Is committed to driving innovation in mobile event apps and event technology with nearly 1,100 research and development resources
  • Offers over 950 product support professionals to ensure customer success

“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.
