This is the tale about
bringing people closer

It's not just the technology that's changing.

What people want and expect from their events is changing. An event shouldn't just be something that happens, but rather an ongoing occurrence of social activity that brings us closer.

Audiences have become more active.

They won't tolerate just sitting through a one‑way flow of information. Attendees expect to be drawn in and interact with brands, organizations, and other attendees.

That's where Ventla comes in.

And now is the perfect time
to travel back in time.

It was spring 2011 when two ambitious chaps, the entrepreneur's Mats Bäcklund and Marcus Falck, dove headfirst into a career-defining conversation.

It kind of went like this: "So what if you would have a way to empower collaborative activity, boost engagement, and provide an interactive process for ongoing learning?"

An event app for in-person events was born.

It was a radically better way.

Challenging the status quo.

A stubborn trait that all revolutionaries have.


It sounds simple in principle.

But saying isn't doing. And actions speak louder than words.

So here's the beginning of a long sentence ending with a colon to tell you about the decisions, commitments, and investments we've made since day one to build an event platform used for thousands of events from big brands to smaller companies, educational institutions, non-profits, and event agencies – this:

  • Give the audience a voice and enable them to build meaningful relationships
  • Make it a breeze for event professionals to create conferences and events 
  • Product innovation from firsthand experience, not "data analysis"
  • Create easy ways to distribute and access information
  • Build natively, don't rely on third parties
  • Encourage interaction and engagement
  • Provide human-friendly support

Revolution to evolution.

From the humble roots of a mobile app, Ventla has grown into supporting the entire event lifecycle from invitation to evaluation to virtual events and hybrid settings, without third‑party dependencies.

And we're very proud of what we've accomplished.

Ventla is the best event platform there is, we think.

Alrighty, that's the only bragging point you'll see on our entire website.

Bragging isn't really our thing! Neither are exclamation points.

We don't shout, we listen… lol, we just bragged again.

Thanks for scrolling.
Hugs for reading.

Hey friend,

Hopefully, you know us by now. And with any luck, you share our point of view on the world.

Because we think we might be onto something. If you think so too, then come here to have a good time with good people.
