It has been a tough year for all of us, yet we were able to quickly adapt and develop new functionalities to support our client's communities around the world in the year where meeting in person wasn't always possible. Read on to learn more about the things that have kept us busy this year.

Our company has changed its corporate image through rebranding and received numerous awards and recognitions in 2020 for our steadfast commitment to transforming professional communities and enriching relationships.

We have officially rebranded from EventBank to Glue Up last August. Since 2013, we have been focusing on offering digital solutions in line with automation and engagement.

The new name Glue Up represents the strength of our solutions, our growth, and our commitment to bring communities and engagement to the center of attention, making your success our mission.

In a year of unspeakable chaos, our company has grown by double digits, doubled in staff, and helped hundreds of associations, chambers, and other organizations to build their communities and enrich their relationships through our technology. Furthermore, we have also expanded our global presence and set up new offices in Brazil and Mexico.

As an all-in-one engagement management SaaS company, we are proud to have been recognized as a global leader in the technology industry. Our brand value and leadership, especially in times of crisis, contributed to our tremendous success that is widely acknowledged by technology councils, professional organizations, and leading publications.

“We believe that our technology and engagement-driven solutions play a crucial role in building meaningful relationships and shaping the way we communicate. Our commitment to helping communities engage digitally has never been more apparent than during the COVID-19 pandemic of 2020,” said Eric Schmidt, CEO and Co-Founder of Glue Up.

“Here at Glue Up, we are proud of all the achievements we have accomplished as a company. And as a talent-centric organization, we believe that finding the right talent and great employee retention strategies are key factors for our competitive success,” added Schmidt.

Some of the major awards and recognitions Glue Up has received this year include:
