Authentric was founded in 2020 when among all the other life altering transitions caused by the pandemic, we were witnessing the shift of in-person events to online and thought to ourselves, “Wow, many of these ‘virtual’ events suck!”
Yes, Zoom and many of the related online meeting tools proved to be an evolutionary (and in many cases business saving) way of conducting relatively short meetings in a new and productive way; but when it came to moving a conference, tradeshow, users group gathering, or similar event online … well, doing that online was an enormous challenge that often missed the mark by a wide margin.
We knew there had to be a better way, we sought to Reinvent Attend.
Based in beautiful Colorado and led by seasoned entrepreneurs from the design, media production, and teleconferencing industries, Authentric is dedicated to being customer focused, technology experts without being beholden to technology, and most importantly, producing events that deliver real value, both to those hosting events and those attending.
