WORLD - Event management company Cvent has acquired CrowdCompass, a mobile app developer.
 
Cvent and CrowdCompass will offer meeting planners a tool to create iPhone, iPad, Android, and Blackberry apps for their business events.    
 
“This acquisition is an important step to ensuring we continue to lead the industry in the adoption of mobile technologies,” said Reggie Aggarwal, Founder and CEO of Cvent.
 
“We selected CrowdCompass because it was clear that it is the leading developer of native mobile apps for business and association events. With experience building hundreds of apps for a wide variety of mid-to large-sized public and private events, the addition of CrowdCompass gives us unparalleled expertise in creating mobile apps for events.  We have offered mobile friendly event web sites for some time, but the CrowdCompass product takes the mobile experience to the next level,” Aggarwal added.
 
CrowdCompass specialises in creating native mobile applications for all major mobile devices, including the iPhone, iPad, Android and BlackBerry.  The company has built 435 apps, which received a total of over 500,000 downloads by event attendees in the last year.
