EventMobi, an industry-leading event management software provider with customers across the globe, announced today the acquisition of Run The World, a trailblazer in the virtual event space.
EventMobi’s software platform empowers organisations to acquire, engage, and retain customers, employees and members through events and conferences. While, Run The World is a leading virtual events platform for organisations and communities, powering over 50K events worldwide.
"We're standing at the dawn of a new era for business conferences, events and communities," said Bob Vaez, Founder and CEO of EventMobi. "With the acquisition of Run The World, we're doubling down on our ability to deliver diverse event formats, expand our reach, and solidify our position as industry leaders. We're thrilled to welcome Run The World and immerse them in the full value of hybrid events."
Starting as a mobile event app provider, EventMobi now offers a full suite of event management tools, including event registration and check-in, year-round event communities, exhibitor lead capture, and the most comprehensive set of engagement and networking tools for in-person and virtual events.
Founded in 2019, Run The World rapidly gained traction and over USD 15 million in investment as the world grappled with the global pandemic. Through its virtual event platform, Run The World connected millions across the globe, growing a diverse customer base – including the likes of Forbes, Meta, Amazon, United Nations Development Programme and Harvard University – and hosting over 50,000 virtual events during a time when virtual connection was paramount.
"We couldn't have anticipated the explosive interest Run The World would generate," said Xiaoyin Qu, Founder and CEO of Run The World. "We proudly hosted thousands of customers, fostering a sense of connection when the world needed it most. Now, as the world settles back to in-person events, we're thrilled to join forces with EventMobi. We assure our community they are in the best hands and can expect even more powerful and seamless hybrid event solutions."
EventMobi recognises the enduring relevance of in-person events while acknowledging the undeniable impact and reach of virtual and online communities. "The future of events will blend in-person and virtual experiences to foster and engage communities. We are committed to enabling our customers to choose the best format to allow their attendees to learn, connect and exchange ideas year-round," said Vaez.
Run The World customers can sign up to join the EventMobi family over the coming months.
