DoubleDutch and Freeman — the start of something different
December 1, 2015
By Richard Maranville, Chief Digital Officer, Freeman
At Freeman, we always strive to create incredible solutions for our customers. We listen to what they want, we do whatever is necessary to deliver top-notch service, and we help them maximize the possibilities of every event. To really deliver on all that, we know that we have to push the envelope when it comes to what’s possible in the events industry.
To stay ahead of the changes in the marketplace, we leverage our experience and industry insights to report on what our customers want, predict future trends, and deliver on what customers are asking us for in new and unexpected ways. We can all agree that digital is one of the trends creating a big impact on the events industry.
We look for the best solution to meet our customers’ needs, whether it’s in-house or with a best-in-class partner. That’s why we’re so excited to be partnering with DoubleDutch. It’s important to us to connect our customers with innovative digital solutions and services beyond our own portfolio, to help them imagine bigger and consistently redefine what success looks like. DoubleDutch is a smart, proven company with mobile solutions for event planners and new exhibitor solutions that are the perfect complement to what Freeman brings to the table. We both focus on customers first and do what it takes to make them happy. When we join forces, that focus only gets stronger.
This isn’t a onetime thing, either—today’s partnership is the first important step in a brand-new aspect of our company, Freeman Digital Ventures. With Freeman Digital Ventures, we are going to be investing and partnering with leading-edge digital companies in the event market. Our work with DoubleDutch will set the stage for the future, letting both our companies make a bigger impact on the events industry and the value we bring to our customers.
