Association of Event Venues Announces Partnership with Momentus Technologies
The Association of Event Venues (AEV) unveiled a new technology partnership with Momentus Technologies, formerly Ungerboeck, for 2023. Under the alliance, Momentus, a global leader in venue and event management software, will have the ability to participate in working group meetings, in particular the cross-association Technology working group, and AEV Event Managers and Finance groups. The agreement also includes sponsorship of the AEV Annual Conference.
Momentus will provide members with the opportunity to give feedback to help the company improve upon and grow its event management products. As Ungerboeck, Momentus has been a long-standing supporter of the AEV, having sponsored its annual conference and icebreaker in recent years.
“We are delighted to be working with AEV and excited by the technology partnership this presents for the U.K. and international event industry,” said Steve Mackenzie, chief innovation officer, Momentus. “Momentus’ commitment to listening to our customers and advancing our venue and event management software capabilities align with the AEV’s philosophy of unifying the voice of its members and helping them thrive in the future.”
Rachel Parker, director, AEV, expressed the organization’s pleasure in welcoming Momentus as its new technology partner.
“Many of our members use their event management products, and their expertise and evolving functionality reflects our industry’s ever-changing needs,” Parker said.
Ungerboeck rebranded in early 2023 as Momentus, a new identity designed to unify the company’s vertical-specific software under one brand to deliver end-to-end solutions for the changing needs of the industry.
As people return to in-person events, producing positive, impactful experiences both physically and virtually has taken on greater importance,” according to Alex Alexandrov, CEO, Momentus.
“As the organization continues to look ahead, creating a strong unifying brand is essential to our employees and to providing our customers the world’s best solutions to give venues the power to produce extraordinary moments,” Alexandrov said of the new identity.
Momentus’ new name and branding is designed to harken back to Ungerboeck’s legacy, while also evoking huge, impactful occasions and events. The change represents a new phase for the company, bringing a renewed energy and passion for the venue and events industry while maintaining and growing its customer-centric mission.
As Momentus, the company is expanding to new use cases and providing more comprehensive, purpose-built solutions for a wide range of customers, including convention and exhibition centers, corporate clients, stadiums and arenas, and arts and culture centers. With Momentus, customers now gain a full breadth of intelligent data-driven solutions built on a powerful intuitive platform that provides a view of past, present and future event operations to increase end-to-end visibility, optimize efficiency and achieve business goals.
Originally founded in 1985 as Ungerboeck, Momentus has more than 50,000 users in more than 50 countries.
