BANGALORE, India, Feb. 22, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Hubilo Technologies Inc, a leading global event technology company, has acquired fielddrive BVBA as a strategic acquisition, which unites two global leading event technology companies. With access to greater resources, data, and market insight, the combined company will deliver leading products and customer experiences as well as attract more top talent.
Hubilo raised over $150 million from leading venture capital firms, including Lightspeed Venture Partners, Alkeon Capital and Balderton Capital. Established 5 years ago, Hubilo has delivered virtual and hybrid event experiences in over 185 countries with over two million attendees.
“The two companies combined really pools our products, expertise, and talent, ensuring that we can cover digital, hybrid, and in-person anywhere in the world. This acquisition cements Hubilo as the leading event tech player,” stated Vaibhav Jain, founder and CEO of Hubilo. Jain added, “fielddrive will run as an independent entity and will continue to be platform agnostic. fielddrive’s dedication to customers aligns with our customer-first approach, and our aim is to continue to meet and exceed our customers needs by providing technology that enables exceptional event experiences regardless of location, budget, or format.”
fielddrive is a global on-site event technology company that supports event organizers globally with sustainable solutions to delight their attendees with the best visitor flow management, all of which can be deployed in any location, venue and event type.

She added, “This is a fantastic acquisition for Hubilo, and we have lots of exciting things planned on our roadmap as we push the boundaries in creating incredible event journeys for organizers and their attendees, exhibitors, and sponsors.”
