EventBank is now Glue Up!
In 2013, we started EventBank with the idea of being able to connect businesses and their communities globally to increase their economic opportunities through the use of our technology. Over the years, we kept adding more features to EventBank and our platform became more than “just” event managment software. The company grew up and our software evolved to an all-in-one engagement platform offering so much more than what our old name EventBank would suggest.
To ensure you and your communities have all the information about this important change, we have prepared this document which is divided into four sections for easy navigation:
As with every change, there might be a period of adaptation for everyone. But do not worry, our hard-working Customer Success team around the globe will be ensuring that the transition is smooth for everyone.
If you have any questions or feedback, please reach out to your Customer Success Manager or contact us.

Our new Glue Up logo
Our new logo is bolder, simpler, and better structured. It is composed of three dots, two of them interconnected. It represents the relationship between our software, the organizations we work with and their communities.
We want to convey the importance of that relationship between organizations (our customers) and their members as that is the main mission of Glue Up.
Our new color scheme brings a strength and clarity to our communication, making it easier to read and understand for everyone.
Our new font is Ubuntu. It is bold, simple, and universal. Just like our Glue Up platform. We have decided for Ubuntu - an open source fontset that meets all these criteria and further emphasizes our focus on communities and open society.
The new logo will be updated on the platform and in our mobile apps. Our system emails will also include our new Glue Up logo. Download web-friendly versions of our logo in black, white, and color in multiple formats and learn more about how to use our logos in our new branding guidelines.
Our new website, glueup.com (http://glueup.com/) is consistent with the new and improved brand direction. You can find comprehensive information about our products and features, industries we serve and many valuable resources that can help you become better there.
