About EventWorx Corporation
We are in the face-to-face business.
The philosophy of the EventWorx Corporation is fairly simple. Human beings by their very nature want to belong to a family, a clan, a group or a gathering where they share experiences of common interest with others. Events, in whatever form, are gatherings of like minded people coming together to share in celebration, commerce, education, and even death. Above it all, they come to share an experience. Social media and the Internet have enabled people from around the world to share just like an event, with a major limitation, the lack of direct human interaction. From time to time, we still want face-to-face interaction with one another. Social media and the Internet are conduits for bringing people together; but we believe face-to-face interactions and handshakes are still the best way to meet and do business. Our philosophy is simple, events work.
The EventWorx team comes together with years of event, project management and business launch experience. Our backgrounds and experiences have taught us plenty, but here are some of the things we value most: We work hard and enjoy what we do. We believe in creating exceptional experiences for all of our customers. Treat others how we wished to be treated. Where possible, under promise and over deliver on our expectations. Always make it right. And have fun, life is short.
And Why the Gears?
A single gear is not very effective, but several of gear together create amazing new machines and mechanisms. The gears symbolize many things, but for EventWorx, we envision our partners, visitors, exhibitors, sponsors, speakers and ourselves each as a gear - bring us together in one place, at one time and we will create something truly amazing.
Our Differences Makeup Our Key Strengths
Each of us came to EventWorx with different backgrounds, difference skillsets and often different perspectives. Our strengths
come from our collective diversity. EventWorx is a unique group of thinkers and doers with a suite of unique the talents and an ability to come together creativity to solve problems. We often see things differently - but we are all driven by our passion to collaborate to produce outstanding events.
In addition to a small executive team, EventWorx is very fortunate to employ a talented group of incredible people, all with exceptional skills that help to elevate EventWorx's brands and those of our clients to new heights.
EventWorx is a privately held, Canadian company, launched in 2017 by the current management team, Wes Scott, Helen Wallace and Bruce Carew. The three partners came out of dmg events, where each of them held senior executive roles overseeing the North American operations of dmg.
