We need to meet different
Conferize is a fast-growing event-tech company listed on Nasdaq FN Copenhagen. We offer a unique set of tools for sharing ideas and gathering people, reshaping the trillion-dollar event industry.
Events are important. Meeting people, creating things and inspiring others moves the world forward. But too often we leave events feeling underwhelmed, not really achieving anything or connecting with anyone. It’s an incredible waste, not least considering events is a trillion-dollar global market. We need to fix this.

The problem is that creating events is too hard and the tools to do it are over-complicated, fragmented and expensive. So we are creating a simple, yet powerful event solution with the most important tools included in an easy-to use package. An affordable solution anyone can use to organize events that create more value for everyone involved.

We need to meet differently, perhaps now more than ever. Expect more events where people meet face-to-face and virtually. You can be part of our journey as an investor.

Equity story

A trillion dollar industry waiting for a wake up call

The event industry is a trillion dollar market in need of an integrated online solution to fundamentally increase the value of events in the digital era.

Many meetings and events are still conceptualized, planned and executed in the same way it happened decades ago. Modern demands for intelligent interaction, networking, and exchange of ideas are simply not met. For too many participants, meetings feel like a waste of their time, resources and commitment.

A new digital approach

Conferize is a simple, yet powerful, digital platform, focusing on bringing people together in much more meaningful ways, liberating the true potential of people gathering.

We offer a unique turnkey digital toolbox for creating, planning and executing events. With a few clicks anyone can create engaging events, complete with website, tickets and communication. We help organizers set up social communities for their events, creating digital spaces where attendees and speakers can form relationships, share knowledge and engage - before, during and after the physical encounter.

A fragmented market

The global event industry is a highly fragmented market with many players and no clear leader.

There are many providers with good partial tools, e.g. for tickets or websites. Very few focus on adding value to events, and those solutions are often expensive and overly complex. They are a far cry from the simple and powerful user experiences we have grown accustomed to the past decade.

Conferize is a different breed. With a simple and holistic solution we empower anyone to create events and gather people in meaningful ways.

Global adoption

We have a global focus. We build a digital platform which is truly scalable. The pilot version shows us that organizers buy in to our value proposition: They want a better, simpler and more effective way to organize events, while enabling their attendees to get much more value from events and create impact.

An unfair advantage
We provide our second-to-none platform for organizing and executing events for free, to remove all barriers for organizers to adopt our tool and platform.

Like other social platforms, such as Facebook, LinkedIn and Instagram, Conferize’s primary source of value lies in building a dedicated user base in the millions by providing our tools and platform free of charge. For every user joining, the network gets strengthened and so does the business potential. It's fueling our global network where anyone can connect and engage around event content, conversations and ideas that move the world forward.

Global adoption
We are already global. Our platform counts more than 25,000 events in more than 140 countries. This is achieved with just a pilot version of our solution. Starting with the new and radically improved Conferize Version 2, launched November 30th 2018, the long term ambition is to conquer the global market of events.

The pilot version shows us that organizers buy in to our value proposition: They want a better, simpler and more effective way to organize events, while enabling their attendees to get much more value from events and create impact. Since our IPO in june 2017 we have been able to realize over 10 percent monthly growth in organizers who sign up and join the platform.

Cases

Conferize in close cooperation with Oxford Group

The international analysis, consultancy and advisory company, Oxford Group, will in the future use Conferize’s digital event platform when Oxford Group brings together its employees from all over the Nordic and Baltic countries.

"It makes me proud that Oxford Group is now using our platform. It is a company that is respected for a very high level of professionalism and therefore, an agreement like the current with Oxford Group helps more people realize how efficient and intuitive our event platform is," says Martin Ferro-Thomsen, CEO & founder of Conferize.

Turning up the volume on the creative community

Fuckup Nights, Barcelona

The global FuckUp Nights movement is on a quest to change people’s perspective about failure. Carlos Cruz Rastrojo already organized 3 events this year via Conferize for the FuckUp Nights Barcelona chapter. He has a lot to say about the value of people getting together every month, in 252 cities worldwide, to share failure stories and learn from them.
