Loopd’s subscription-based platform offers event planners and marketers the intelligence to help them build more effective strategies through a combination of onsite technology and an analytics engine. This acquisition complements etouches' recent data-driven approach.

Shane Edmonds, CTO of etouches, said: "After the development of our in-house event performance and ROI solution, Loopd was the logical choice to help continue our journey to offer clients data-driven technology to enhance their events in real-time. Once integrated into the etouches platform, Loopd’s technology will provide our clients with remarkable insights into their event and business goals, as well as elevate the onsite experiences of their attendees."

As part of the acquisition, Brian Friedman, co-founder and CEO of Loopd, will join the etouches team as director of product for mobile, data and engagement. Commenting on the acquisition he said: "I couldn’t think of a better synergy for our experiential data-driven technology than etouches. At Loopd, our goal was to prove ROI to attendees, partners and event marketers by using the latest advancements in technology. The mission and culture at etouches is a natural fit for Loopd, and together we will bring mission-critical insights to the world through leading onsite technology."
