When asked why the Monterey Jazz Festival chose Lennd as their partner, Production Manager, Bill Wagner, said:
“With so many logistics associated with a complex event such as the Monterey Jazz Festival, a good database platform is crucial. Our various departments need to have up-to-date information available at their fingertips to operate smoothly and effectively. Our Festival has been looking for a complete solution to manage the organization’s needs. LENND’s platform fulfills a great deal of our needs.”
“It’s always incredible to work with and support such a progressive event team. Even though they’ve been producing this historic event for so long, they continue to find ways to improve. No wonder it’s such an amazing event, year in and year out”, said Chris Carver, Co-Founder and CEO of Lennd.
When asked what impact Lennd can have on the industry as a whole, Wagner said:
"I’m certain that a majority of large festivals and events would benefit from an all-inclusive event management platform like Lennd; most organizations use several independent databases that don’t communicate with each other, reducing the efficiency of the organization."
“As the experience economy continues to grow and evolve, consumers continue to expect more and more out of the events they attend. Since production budgets are not expanding at the same pace, more and more event teams are leaning on technology to streamline their event operations. It’s really exciting to see partners like the Monterey Jazz Festival rally behind Lennd and the technology we continue to release. They understand the benefit now, but they also see the unlimited potential” said Carver.
Lennd is a next generation event management software platform that simplifies operations and logistics so event teams can work smarter, move faster, and improve their ROI.
