Berlin 13/10/2016 – German technology conference provider meetyoo is expanding its virtual events business with the takeover of ubivent GmbH. The Berlin based company is securing the comprehensive software knowledge and technical infrastructure of the virtual trade fair and event provider. This takes meetyoo another major step closer to establishing itself as the leading full-service conference provider in the European market.
With advancing digitalisation, corporate communications are changing steadily. In addition to the established meetyoo online business offer, the demand for innovative solutions for virtual events is growing. At present the market is dominated by American companies and, with the acquisition of ubivent, meetyoo will become the standard bearer for quality, safety and service in the sector. Ubivent brings experience in virtual trade fairs & events as well as its in-house, multi-award winning software platform. The three managing directors, all graduate computer scientists, have won contracts in many DAX corporations with groundbreaking solutions since founding the company in 2009.
“With the acquisition of ubivent, our customers will benefit from the focused drive of two companies setting high standards for themselves in their respective disciplines,” says meetyoo founder Tony E. Kula. “We will bring together the leading development know-how of the conference industry with our uncompromising standards in terms of quality and service competency.” Kula is convinced that this will provide new impetus to further develop meetyoo multimedia products: “With this increased software expertise, we will continue to grow our portfolio under the hallmark ‘made in Germany’ and will maintain our focus on the European market.”
ubivent for its part is positive about the move: “By joining meetyoo, we open up completely new opportunities and potential to further expand our technology and offer it to a wider customer base,” says Dr. Michael Geisser, Managing Director of ubivent. “After all, meetyoo is known for its innovative spirit and has more than 15 years of experience in the provision of telephone conferences and virtual events in Germany.”
ubivent GmbH will be run as an independent subsidiary from the Mannheim site, under the existing leadership of Dr. Arndt, Dr. Butter and Dr. Geisser.
