Our Story

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 that could put event data to use to boost business performance. Because our company was founded by seasoned event industry experts, we quickly attracted the attention of the world’s most innovative companies.

Starting in 2016 with the most renowned events (Oracle Openworld, VMworld, and Cisco Live), we proved that one software can accommodate the variety of requirements needed to run even the most elaborate events. Over the next few years, we continued to enhance our platform to further simplify event registration, content management, exhibitor activation, virtual delivery, and onsite experiences.

Today, the platform is used by leading Fortune 1000 companies to manage hundreds of events of all types and sizes. 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.
