September 2019

EventMB Skift

EventMB, the famous American website for meeting industry professionals, was acquired by Skift, the largest travel site in the world, based in New York.

For over 10 years Event Manager Blog, the website founded and directed by Julius Solaris, and of which ItaliaConvention translates some articles exclusively for Italy, has provided the international world of meetings with information, news, ideas and curiosities that have contributed to make the work of thousands of event planners more effective and modern in the 5 continents. And today it will also do so through Skift.

Founded in Italy in 2007 (Julius Solaris is from Apulia) EventMB then moved to Las Vegas where it grew very quickly and became the most influential website on the market with a leading position worldwide.

Julius also founded “Event Planning & Event Management – the 1st Group for Event Professionals”, the largest Linkedin group in the field, with over 400,000 members.

Today EventMB joins Skift Inc, the largest travel site in the world based in New York, founded in 2012 by Rafat Ali and Jason Clampet. The website provides news, research and marketing services for the travel industry.

EventMB will continue to work with its prestigious brand and Julius Solaris will remain at its helm.
