After managing in the events industry for over 15 years Katie Fountain found that there was often a gap between vendors and organizers. Having worked on hundreds of events in several different countries, there was always the issue of sourcing event contractors. Spending hours per event finding the correct photographer, catering, entertainment, etc. she though that there must be a better way and, 1 Web Events was born. It has been years in the making and has finally been launched in 2017 in Vancouver, Canada.
1 Web Events is a directory for event organizers to easily search through, cutting down the time so that they can concentrate on what they enjoy (organizing and planning). For the vendors, it is an opportunity get seen by the various organizers so they can spend less time advertising their service, and spend more time doing what they enjoy. By incorporating a public volunteer board and event calendar, it is the one stop for the event industry.
