Birmingham 2022 has selected Iventis as its official technology supplier ahead of the start of the Commonwealth Games later this week.
Inventis’ geospatial event planning tool will be deployed to bring together maps, CAD plans and other datasets. This will help organisers create and share their plans with key stakeholders with the intention of facilitating better, faster communication and expediting decision making.
East Midlands-based Iventis said its relationship with the Commonwealth Games Federation Partnership will continue for future editions of the event.
Birmingham 2022 begins on July 28 and runs until August 8.
Joe Cusdin, Iventis’ chief executive and founder, said: “We are delighted to have been selected as the official technology supplier for such a prestigious event within our local region. The Commonwealth Games has shown a commitment to innovation in technology to improve how the event is planned and delivered.
“This complex, multi-sport event is exactly what Iventis was designed for and by using Iventis’ event planning tools, the whole team including stakeholders and suppliers are able to plan every aspect of the event in a truly integrated way – moving away from plans being managed in disparate formats.
“The Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games joins the growing list of major events that have chosen Iventis to transform their planning process. Our team of experts will be seconded to Birmingham for the games in a variety of functions from sponsor services to technology operations and results QA and we look forward to working with the team ahead of and during the fantastic event.”
The Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games involves over 5,054 athletes competing in 72 teams.
Laurence Smith, head of venue technology for Birmingham 2022, said: “Birmingham 2022 is the largest event to be held in the UK since London 2012. That means it is an incredibly complex operation for us to manage. Iventis allows us to knit all of those requirements together in a single platform.
“It’s absolutely fantastic and so useful across the supply chain for everybody to have access across all of the different venues. It’s been fantastic from an efficiency and commercial value perspective.”
