MeetingPlay + Aventri + eventcore Unveils New Name & Corporate Rebrand Reflecting Company's Transformation 

Combined entity emerges as the definitive event technology ecosystem to support visionary brands with all their events

Washington, D.C. – October 10, 2022 – Following the merger of MeetingPlay and Aventri and the acquisition of eventcore earlier this year, these leading event technology companies are debuting today as one global leader in event management solutions: Stova. Marking another major milestone in the evolution of the consolidation of three major event technology pioneers, Stova is the most comprehensive platform in the industry for delivering exceptional experiences for global enterprise clients.

The new branding is rooted in the heritage, technology, and people of these three iconic brands - three drivers that have made the company and its portfolio what it is today. As the organization continues to look ahead, creating a strong, unified brand in the marketplace is essential while ensuring the new identity matches the innovative technology firm the company has become.

Born from the phrase “standing ovation”, “Stova” is a statement to the brand’s value of delivering synergistic, solutions-based products and services for event management that supports clients in creating epic experiences for events of any size and for every audience.

“For over a decade, our three unique brands have offered innovative products and technologies to help companies deliver highly impactful events,” said Eric Lochner, CEO of Stova. “We have immense pride in the consolidated entity we have created, and we’ve only just begun. We are deeply connected to our clients’ event landscape and will continue to invest in and build event technology solutions that consistently meet our clients’ changing needs to deliver epic events, every time. We’re excited to unveil an updated corporate name and branding that more accurately reflect the company we’ve become, a true one-stop-shop for our clients’ event technology needs.”
