I founded The Vendry in 2018 to with the mission of making event planning easier. We focus on building tools to help corporate event planners and experiential marketers source both the creative inspiration for their events and the right partners to help them execute their vision.
When it's safe to have in-person events again, freelancers are going to be one of the biggest drivers of the corporate events and experiential marketing industries. With so many event professionals being laid off, furloughed, or having their hours cut, they're taking this time to develop their own personal brands - we've seen more members of our community than ever market themselves as freelancers. Brands, on the other hand, are going to want to jump back into live events the minute it's safe to do so. Their clients, customers, and employees are sick of being all virtual all the time, but many no longer have the in-house resources they need to produce a live event. When that time comes, this burgeoning community of event freelancers is going to be there, ready to get to work.3 August 2021
