Event management is a niche sector in which various players are already well established: Digitick, Weezevent or even Eventmaker, formerly Applidget. While the first two focus on ticketing, the third focuses on event management.

Eventmaker was launched by Tristan Verdier in 2009. The start-up publishes several software to facilitate the organization of an event. The company provides “tools so that our clients can use the platforms on their own to manage their events», Explains Tristan Verdier, CEO of Eventmaker. Everything is sold as a subscription or a package.

The start-up recently announced that it wanted to take the turn of artificial intelligence. She started by creating the Do You Bot service, a chatbot that provides information to visitors.

Eventmaker works mainly with trade fairs such as those of the grandes écoles or those of Apec. For the coming year, the company wishes to move towards event organizers who set up between 5 and 200 meetings per year.
