Birmingham 2022 selects Iventis as official technology supplier 

Following a competitive tender process, Iventis has been selected as the official technology supplier to the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games.

Iventis’ event planning tool will be used by everyone involved in planning the event. The organising and operational teams will 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 more than 5,050 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.

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.”

Joe Cusdin, CEO and founder of Iventis, said: “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.

“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.”

Iventis’ relationship with the Commonwealth Games Federation Partnership will continue for future editions of the event.
