Conferize celebrates one year as a listed company and reaches 50,000 users (only in Danish)
The IT company Conferize celebrates one year on the stock exchange with 50,000 users on the company’s digital platform for the event industry. This is a growth of 56 percent since the IPO on Nasdaq First North last summer. The growth has been achieved solely on the basis of a prototype of Conferize’s software - a digital tool for the global event and conference industry, a billion-dollar industry in Denmark alone.
Founder and CEO of Conferize, Martin Ferro-Thomsen says: "We are really proud of our growth, not least because it’s achieved with a limited prototype. Although 50,000 users are far from the end goal, it's not an insignificant milestone. And if we at the same time look at the event organizers, which is our primary target group, we have more than tripled their number since the IPO. Everything indicates that our concept hits the spot in the market,”
Martin Ferro-Thomsen explains that Conferize is ready with a Version 2 of the company’s software before the end of 2018, which the CEO calls a groundbreaking product. "With Version 2 we’ll take the first steps towards making Conferize a profitable business. We will still be able to undercut the market with a superior product. Even with low prices, the revenue potential in relation to ticket fees is strong. We can serve a huge global market with a scalable self-service product without significant operating costs," says CEO Martin Ferro-Thomsen
Conferize was founded in 2012 and has more than 20 employees. In relation to the one-year anniversary on Nasdaq First North, the company launches a new investor portal at invest.conferize.com. On the new investor portal, it is possible to follow the development of the company and gain insight into the growth of the platform.
