iVvy has taken out the Major’s Innovation GC Award at the Gold Coast Business Excellence Awards (October 2017).
The award, which acknowledges innovative businesses that have applied new knowledge, technologies or processes to improve outcomes for clients and the community, caps off a highly successful year for iVvy including international award wins, global expansion and world-first commercial partnerships.
iVvy Founder and CEO, Lauren Hall said, “We are honoured to be recognised with this award in our home town where iVvy started with a team of just three in 2008 and is now a team of 85 in three countries. It is a testament to iVvy’s commitment, perseverance and determination to become a global company from the Gold Coast, believing anything is truly possible if you have the right team, support and capital.
“This year has seen iVvy expand into international markets, rapidly grow revenues and partner with some of the industry’s biggest names to create game-changing event management platforms.”
iVvy’s event management solution enables event organisers to streamline the event planning process, from venue selection and procurement, to marketing, ticketing, registration, sponsor and exhibitor management and reporting. With iVvy’s world-first real-time Marketplace, event organisers can search, compare, book and pay for function space with live visibility on availability, pricing and package inclusions.
Lauren Hall (pictured) says, “We’ve reduced the event planning process from six weeks down to six minutes, and digitised the entire events industry with world-first technology and an award-winning cloud-based platform.”
To date, iVvy has managed over 30,000 events, transacted more than $200 million in ticket revenue, and supports over 13,000 users in 13 countries.
Lauren Hall says iVvy is primed for future growth: “We anticipate accelerated growth in the next 12 months. Our in-market team will expand to 180 across Australia, the US, UK and South Africa. We have major announcements with multinational brands in development. And we continue to improve our customer experience and service offering, with a dedicated R&D team continuously releasing product improvements and new features.
