SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--DoubleDutch, the global leading provider of mobile event apps, today announced it ranked 73 on Deloitte’s Technology Fast 500™, a ranking of the 500 fastest growing technology, media, telecommunications, life sciences and energy tech companies in North America. With more than 1,000 customers and offices around the world in San Francisco, Amsterdam, London, Hong Kong, and Portland, DoubleDutch is growing more than 100 percent year over year.
The $565 billion events and conferences industry is prime for transformation as the world has become more mobile, social, digital and data-driven. DoubleDutch has spent the last two years transforming the attendee experience through providing a fun, additive and highly engaging mobile event app.
“As one of the most popular and highly rated mobile event apps in the industry DoubleDutch is growing at an unprecedented rate,” said Lawrence Coburn, CEO of DoubleDutch. “The next phase of our growth will be driven by using the mobile platform and rich attendee data we’ve gathered to provide value to event organizers, exhibitors and marketers.”
DoubleDutch serves corporate events, associations, and trade shows, providing a best-in-class mobile application for attendees on the front end, and near real-time event performance analytics for event organizers on the back end, complete with sentiment analysis and engagement benchmarks.
Events sit at the intersection of three key stakeholders: attendees, exhibitors, and organizers, and have all the elements of a classic, multi-sided market. The software opportunity for the category is broader than just digitizing the event program. By leveraging its command of the data coming from the show floor, DoubleDutch provides an opportunity for attendees to enjoy a personalized and curated experience, organizers to benchmark and optimize event performance, and exhibitors to ensure they do not leave leads on the table.
