Competitive vendor landscape

The market is highly fragmented owing to the presence of many vendors. The competition in the global event management as a service market is intense. Vendors try to sustain themselves by improving delivery models through the adoption of technology. As many vendors are seeking to gain market shares, more acquisitions are anticipated during the forecast period. Both large vendors and core event management-as-a-service providers consider the M&A strategy to improve their market presence and expand their reach. Large companies acquire smaller companies to increase their product base and market share. Through such acquisitions, large companies acquire advanced technologies and have an opportunity to enter new markets.

 “Vendors are integrating virtual event technologies with social networks to transform the way employees network with their colleagues and customers to leverage the increased use of Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter. Smartphone applications are fetching the next-generation platforms for virtual events. Besides, many organizations are using event management apps to keep attendees up-to-date of event details and to keep them involved before, during, and after the event as the use of mobile phones is more predominant among event attendees,” says Abhay Sinha, a lead analyst at Technavio for research on enterprise application.

The key vendors in the global event management as a service market include Lanyon, Cvent, etouches, Eventbrite, Eventzilla, Regpack, and XING Events.
