This acquisition provides a platform to accelerate industry innovation and add more value for customers all over the world. Ungerboeck has seen rapid international growth in a short period of time. Acquiring Priava with its strong representation in Australia, New Zealand, and the United Kingdom gives Ungerboeck an even greater international presence.
“This acquisition accelerates our objective to grow internationally,” says Fred Lazzerini, Ungerboeck senior VP international. “We’re bringing in more venues in the Ungerboeck community, and adding staff in Australia, India, and the UK which gives us growth capacity.”
By combining resources, the companies can support event professionals with a higher level of efficiency and expertise. Current and future customers can expect faster industry growth, rapid innovation, more product offerings, and additional resources designed to better serve the event business.
“This is an extremely exciting moment in Priava’s history,” says Tom Gleeson, group CEO of Priava. “In joining forces with Ungerboeck, we will build on the momentum we have created and work together to deliver state-of-the-art venue and event management solutions to drive the industry forward.”
Customers can keep using the products and services they currently use without interruption. Both Ungerboeck and Priava will continue to support all existing customers with the same focus on success. As the product teams come together, customers can look for exciting new offerings that add value to their event business.
