Unlike most event tech organisations, we actually have experience and expertise in events.
From our background working as event directors, planners and technicians delivering across the globe events large and small, we recognised in 2012 the importance of event tech in adding value to event management and delegate experience.
That added value covers speed of information communication, clarity of the total event package, ROI across the whole event lifespan and of course delegate registration, pre-event delegate communication and onsite delegate experience.
This means that you and ya-yaregie are talking the same language from day one. Add to this our passion for customer care and problem solving and you can rest assured that you are working with committed event tech experts.
