Thank you for taking the time to read about us and our long awaited project.

The Event City Network (ECN™) will reach the largest population of professionals who serve all aspects of the Events & Creative Industries™. ECN’s main focus is on distinct market segments which include the Special Events, Meeting Planning, Hospitality, Travel, Art, Entertainment & Music industries and all of their vertical markets. Additionally, Food & Beverage, Publishing & Printing, and Associations or Non-Profit Organizations affiliated with these market segments are included as important elements of membership.

The Event City™ online portal will offer a plethora of services, important industry-related concepts, critical information and support, valuable tools, and imperative business solutions for all aspects and market segments of these industries. It will benefit everyone from students straight out of college dreaming of playing a role in any of the disciplines to CEO’s planning to go public with their Venture Capital Firm.

Additionally the Marketplace Channel, Event City Emporium™, will host thousands of products some of which are extremely unique and specific to these represented professionals and their industries. You will get to view Sneak Peaks of these products and other unique merchandise prior to them reaching market, either on one of our Blogs or through our Magazine Channel, Event City Creative™.

The Event City Concierge™ another important Channel, will feature an accumulation of benefits from simple business and industry related contracts to forums, networking opportunities, some great new technology software applications (directly and indirectly relating to our industries), and even the ability to instantly contact a “Professional or Expert” for assistance across most industry disciplines and then some.

ECN conducted 5 unique Beta Tests during the entire course of their R&D period, receiving a wealth of positive feedback and information from the Event City testing community. Within the last few years they have received a substantial collection of “Opt-in” Beta Test recipients eager to see the launch of the Event City Online™. The founding members are proud that many of you have participated as Beta Testers, well over 12,000 qualified Meeting Planners, Event Producers, Hospitality industry professionals, and Corporate planners as well as service company experts, some associates and friends and a smidgen of other technical experts from various industries.

All of this quite simply means- Event City knows their audience well and what they want and need. The sky’s the limit for the Event City Network, and they’re making it incredibly easy to participate!

If you are not a current Beta Tester all you need to do is to Sign up for Registration. The current plan is to complete our Alpha launch and commence the Beta Test with several thousand users. Approximately 1,500 members will be Meeting, Event and Corporate Planners, though that number continues to grow as more and more members request their beta testing privileges. After the final beta soft launch is complete there will be a “public” launch event with more than 12,000 members, where at least 6,000 will be Meeting, Event and Corporate Planners. All Founding Members and beta testers will receive many FREEBIES, contest promotions, and special benefits as part of their membership.

ECN’s mission is to become the portal property available 24/7 to assist Events & Creative industry professionals, at all levels, in all aspects of their business and professional goals, offering everything from project management and planning events to receiving advice and purchasing power for any type of product or services within the Events & Creative industries–and beyond. Teaming with Event City will assist the entire Events and Creative Community in all of their endeavors no matter how small or large. Members helping Members(tm) that’s our plan in a nutshell. Ultimately, the ECN ideology is to create a philanthropic organization that will allow Event City to better the lives of others.

ECN expects to be the industry’s first choice for new product development, RFP’s, advance productivity and industry related education, efficiency advancement- both for the individual as well as small businesses to major corporations, product showcasing, general industry assistance, news, information, and promotion, marketing and advertising opportunities as well as a full scope of editorial content.


Productivity at Hyper-Speed for the
Events & Creative Industries

Can you please send me details regarding your launch and how one might be added to your Beta or Alpha testing list if you actually are doing this?

  14. I was an original beta tester about 4 years ago or so (when you had the EBJ (Electronic Business Journal) and I am blown away at how you are putting it all together. I didn’t think it could be done. When I first spoke to your founder (his name escapes me right now) he realized how big of an undertaking this was, but said it could be done. I thought he was crazy – well, he fooled me! I am very happy for your company’s success, I can’t wait to be on the testing side of this project when you go live. The greatest in success is wished for the entire team who worked on this.

    Your friend Gloria @ the Marriot in SF on 3rd (formerly manager there).

  15. nice, so far very nicely done. I look forward to everything else you do , as a former beta tester and someone who’s been in the biz for a long time I certainly appreciate all of your efforts over the past few years.

    My best,

  16. Splendid articles and some pretty cool products. I am extremely excited about the companys concept. Any chance to volunteer or help out I can oly imagine how insane it must be. Can I buy a member now? Looking for your pre-sales website, I had met someone at a convention and they said we could pre-pay for a membership.
    Thanks, Tex

  17. Great articles and information. I love the events listing information page and the Premier Magazine. Thank you to everyone at EVENT CITY for all of your hard work. looking forward to your launch. How does one get involved?

  18. This is an exciting project. I am on board with it. Please add me to your list and keep me updated as to when you will launch. What an ambitious project.
