It provides passionate individuals an opportunity to share meaningful and memorable interactive brand experiences. inVNT provides proven event expertise that will make our company a more attractive strategic partner for global advertisers. This acquisition complements our traditional and digital advertising assets, and I see enormous potential to grow this business."
