Our Purpose

We believe face-to-face interaction creates valuable relationships and drives business results.

About Us

RainFocus is an end-to-end event management platform designed to generate actionable insights that improve event performance for enterprises. From our very first event in 2016 to our 500th in 2019, we have dedicated our efforts to crafting innovative technologies that constantly increase event impact and value.

Our Beginnings

RainFocus was established to simplify event success. After decades of struggling with pieced-together systems and complicated data silos, our founders joined together to build a single platform to harness data to improve event impact. Because our company was founded by seasoned event industry experts, we quickly attracted the attention of the world’s most innovative companies.

After using RainFocus to analyze the performance of their events, Oracle approached us with the monumental task of delivering their marquee event, OpenWorld. We set to work building a complete end-to-end event management tool on top of our powerful BI foundation to solve for their event portfolio complexities and their struggles to make insight-driven actions. With the aid of our excellent data platform, the event went off without a hitch.

Over the next few months, we added VMware, Cisco, and more events from Oracle and proved that one software can accommodate the variety of requirements needed to run some of the most complex events in the industry.

Today, the platform is used by the leading Fortune 1000 companies to manage hundreds of events each year. With a client list that would make you do a double-take, RainFocus is quickly changing the event marketing industry one successful event after another.
