Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games Announces Iventis as Official Technology Supplier

The Iventis platform enables organisers to plan every aspect of the event across their venues.

Iventis’ geospatial event planning tool is used by everyone involved in planning the event. They use it to bring together maps, CAD plans and other datasets so they can easily create and share their plans with key stakeholders, facilitating better, faster communication and expediting decision making. The Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games involves over 5,054 athletes competing in 72 teams from 54 Commonwealth of Nations countries and 18 territories. The logistics of an event of this scale require clear, concise and collaborative mapping.

With the event being held in the Midlands and Iventis being an East Midlands-based business funded by the Midlands Investment Engine, Iventis’ CEO and Founder, Joe Cusdin, says the partnership is even more poignant.

“We are delighted to have been selected as the official technology supplier for such a prestigious event within our local region. The Commonwealth Games has shown a commitment to innovation in technology to improve how the event is planned and delivered” he says.

“This complex, multi-sport event is exactly what Iventis was designed for and by using Iventis’ event planning tools, the whole team including stakeholders and suppliers are able to plan every aspect of the event in a truly integrated way - moving away from plans being managed in disparate formats.

“The Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games joins the growing list of major events that have chosen Iventis to transform their planning process. Our team of experts will be seconded to Birmingham for the games in a variety of functions from sponsor services to technology operations and results QA and we look forward to working with the team ahead of and during the fantastic event,” adds Joe.

Laurence Smith, Head of Venue Technology for Birmingham 2022 said: “Birmingham 2022 is the largest event to be held in the UK since London 2012. That means it is an incredibly complex operation for us to manage. Iventis allows us to knit all of those requirements together in a single platform.”

“It’s absolutely fantastic and so useful across the supply chain for everybody to have access across all of the different venues”

“It’s been fantastic from an efficiency and commercial value perspective”

Iventis’ relationship with the Commonwealth Games Federation Partnership will continue for future editions of the event which will bring lasting benefits beyond Birmingham 2022. Having a single source of trusted data, irrespective of timing and location will help the event’s planners make better data driven decisions for future editions of the event based on past experience.

About Iventis

Iventis is a collaborative planning platform for the organisers of large, complex events and operations. It is a web-based application where teams can build, develop, manage and share plans all in one place, bringing the power of visual, geographic planning to the whole team.

Iventis Founder, Joe Cusdin, has worked on several major events including London 2012 and the Baku 2015 European Games and created Iventis after realising the day-to-day challenges planners had when developing and sharing plans. The problems that can arise when stakeholders do not have reliable data to work from and costs involved when remedying them can be colossal.

Iventis makes planning major events and operations more efficient and effective. The platform comes complete with a variety of map and satellite data sources that can help teams visualise everything from block plans during the bid to furniture and equipment planning during delivery. Plan, share, collaborate and control with Iventis.
