Job Description:

The Company is leading the transformation of the $263B meeting and event planning industry from a fractured, disconnected, traditional business services sector into a comprehensive online marketplace where every stakeholder in the industry's supply chain can fully leverage their business on a global scale.

As an Event Commerce company, The Company automates the buying and selling for meetings and events, allowing the entire industry's supply chain to interact and transact smoothly online. In an industry that is all about the personal touch and continually raising the bar, meeting and event professionals are increasingly challenged to manage costs and still deliver extraordinary experiences. The Company does this through:

--- Enterprise capabilities for procurement within corporations to gain control and visibility into meeting and event spend

--- eCommerce operating platform solution for Destination Management Companies (DMCs) and Event Management companies to manage and source suppliers, propose to buyers, manage change orders, reconcile contracts and make payments

--- Supplier management software to manage and source approved and preferred suppliers, mitigate risk with insurance compliance and communicate with suppliers

--- Marketing tools that equip sellers with the ability to market their companies in an interactive, online profile

--- Reporting to gain visibility into detailed spend analytics and a payment portal to expedite sales transactions and quickly reconcile programs

The Company is the first and only company to develop a full online supply chain integration on a cloud-based platform. The transaction-based revenue model creates unlimited growth opportunity with built-in incentives for adoption at every level of the supply chain. The 5 largest Meeting and Incentive companies are already evangelist clients building the database and transacting online. Dell is The Company's newest corporate client using The Company for procurement to manage spend and strategically source suppliers. Through the partnership, Dell will achieve greater efficiency, generate cost savings and maintain transparency throughout the entire process.

The Company Platform links all the members of the supply chain to connect and transact with one another solving key pain points by providing control, visibility, and efficiency. With The Company's technology, meeting and event professionals will increase revenue and remove inefficient manual systems. Unlike many software solutions that remove the value add reseller, The Company enables the value add reseller to grow and provide more value to customers. The technology provides an efficient transactional sale, while the value-add reseller leverages buying power, offers expertise, handles operations, and supports their own customers.
