New Jersey’s Eventcombo announced today it is investing $10 million over three years to expand its operations and establish a new headquarters in Calgary.
With ambitious plans for growth in the region supported by Invest Alberta and Calgary Economic Development, the all-in-one event technology platform intends to create 250 highly skilled jobs to serve clients around the world.
Eventcombo has been making waves in the industry by driving innovation through collaborations, including with Alberta Innovates and a recent partnership with Alberta Machine Intelligence Institute (Amii) that has opened new frontiers for incorporating artificial intelligence into event technology, revolutionizing the way events are planned, executed, and analyzed.
Eventcombo’s event management solution plans to leverage artificial intelligence and machine learning algorithms to streamline the entire event lifecycle.
By harnessing the power of these technologies, Eventcombo offers event organizers a comprehensive suite of tools to enhance attendee engagement, optimize event logistics, and deliver personalized experiences.
The company’s platform empowers organizers to make data-driven decisions, increase operational efficiency, and maximize event success.
Invest Alberta and Calgary Economic Development have supported Eventcombo’s plans to relocate to Alberta by helping navigate the local business and investment landscape and making valuable introductions to service providers and partners.
“Our mission for global expansion is being accelerated due to rapid adoption of EventTech, which has led to increased demand from our existing customer base in the US. To facilitate this growth, we have found a welcoming ecosystem here in Calgary,” commented Saroosh Gull, CEO of Eventcombo.
“With a booming talent transformation and a focus on innovation, we see tremendous opportunities to make a global impact right from within Alberta.”
Calgary Economic Development has also partnered with Eventcombo to deliver its signature events including the flagship economic forecast event, 2024 Economic Outlook, which will be hosted on Eventcombo’s all-in-one eventtech solution.
In addition to announcing their hiring plans, Eventcombo introduced their new senior advisor, former Alberta Premier Jason Kenney.
“In my government, political life, I was always a huge advocate for private enterprise, for business, for innovation and entrepreneurship — and now I get to do it,” Kenney said.
“I love the creativity and the energy that entrepreneurs bring. I want to be part of that. I think Eventcombo is a good example. And also, I get a little bit more like a normal life with the odd evening and weekend off, which is a big bonus.”
