ICCA members Ungerboeck and EventBooking, two leading software providers of event and venue management tools, announced a merger that will enable the unified company to offer customers an integrated set of capabilities that further enhance the world-class solutions they provide today. The consolidation will provide customers with expedited technology enhancements and accelerated innovation, while continuing the focus on customer success.
With the backing of Cove Hill Partners, these two leaders bring their combination of more than 50 years of experience together to power the events world in ways never before possible. Manish Chandak of Ungerboeck will serve as president and CEO, and Steve Mackenzie of EventBooking will serve as executive vice president.
“This is an opportunity to build upon the strengths and expertise of both companies,” says Manish Chandak (pictured left). “By joining forces, we’ll be able to collaborate and provide even greater value for venue professionals worldwide. We’ve both been long-time members and contributors to ICCA and we feel this merger will allow us to offer ICCA members unparalleled innovation from a technology standpoint.”
“Together, we unify our efforts to provide easy-to-learn and powerful products to drive the industry forward, all while we marry the aspects that clients love about each,” says Steve Mackenzie (pictured right). “And, of course, the biggest focus will always be on service and ensuring we continue to set the standard in this area.”
While Ungerboeck and EventBooking have developed similar offerings in the past, they’ve always shared the same mission: driving innovation for the success of their customers. Now, under one company with one set of values and a shared roadmap, the unified team can focus on propelling their clients’ business to new levels and help the entire events world achieve new heights.
Senthil Gopinath (pictured left), CEO of ICCA, says, “It is exciting to see how two significant ICCA member companies have adapted to the new environment and consolidated their talent and expertise to better serve the ICCA community.
