Cvent Acquires SF-based DoubleDutch

Software solutions company Cvent has acquired San Francisco-based DoubleDutch. Founded in 2010, the mobile event app has been named one of Deloitte’s 500 fastest-growing companies in North America and one of Forbes’ 10 Hot Companies to Work for in San Francisco.

Cvent has been on an acquisition rampage, acquiring several event technology platforms within the past year, including Wedding Spot in May (which gives the company more year-round business), Social Tables in October 2018, Quickmobile in May 2018, and Kapow in June 2018. The acquisition of DoubleDutch—and the companies acquired before it—could streamline experiences for planners and their attendees.

“We are extremely excited to add DoubleDutch to the Cvent family,” said Reggie Aggarwal, CEO and founder of Cvent. “By adding DoubleDutch’s industry expertise to Cvent, we accelerate our investment in mobile event technology.

“DoubleDutch is an innovator in the mobile event app space and both Cvent and DoubleDutch have a shared mission to unlock the business value of human connection,” said Lawrence Coburn, CEO and founder of DoubleDutch. “We are incredibly proud to join the market-leading team at Cvent. With their global reach and scale, we can fuel our passion to change the way people connect, learn, and grow at live events.”
