IML acquires Eventbookings Ltd, adding online event management software and services to its growing product portfolio

Already world-leaders in the provision of audience response systems; the acquisition will broaden the range of IML’s event technology, making a cost-effective global ‘one stop shop’ for event organisers.

“We have successfully partnered with Eventbookings for many years, and have always been impressed by the quality of their software and their broad range of clients” said Richard Taylor, CEO, IML.

“IML already provides audience response to over 1,500 global meetings a year and this acquisition will give us the opportunity to work with our clients from the conception to completion of their events, further streamlining their event management responsibilities.”

Founded in 1996, Eventbookings Ltd, a Microsoft Certified Partner**, has developed leading edge event management software, based on Microsoft’s .NET technology. The software has been used by millions of delegates and by clients such as the MTV Europe Music Awards repeatedly over the last 8 years.

In addition to on-line event management software, eventbookings.com also offers a competitive edge with a complete range of delegate management services including name badges, delegate help desks and sales accounting management.

“Integrating our leading edge online event management software with IML’s audience response technologies provides customers with a unique event technology offering in the market,” said Philip Haines former Managing Director of Eventbookings Ltd, who has joined IML.

“We are excited to have joined forces with IML and continue the innovation and excellent customer service Eventbookings was founded on.”

IML will retain the Eventbookings team who will be relocating the short distance to IML’s Liphook headquarters at Bohunt Manor.
