Oliver Rowe is co-founder of award-winning events platform, VenuIQ, which gives users the tools to instantly create apps and web experiences for virtual, hybrid and in-person events.
Oliver has worked in the technology space for over 20 years. Having initially started in B2B telecommunications for one of the largest independent partners, he then went on to become sales director and shareholder at 21 and led revenue growth to £10million, at which point the business was sold in 2012.
Following that, he launched his own communications business, Fusion Business Communications Ltd, in 2013, and software company Majero Ltd in 2014, under which the BuddyCRM and VenuIQ platforms sit.
VenuIQ has won multiple awards including ‘Best Conference Technology’ and ‘Best Use of AI’ in 2019 for its Event Builder platform, and ‘Best New Product’ in 2020 for its Safewatch tool, which allows organisers to track delegates and ensure social distancing by alerting them and the delegate to any breaches. The tool also manages contact tracing if required.
