Bear Analytics to Bring Data Expertise to Lippman Connects Programs

Leader in Data Analytics Is Tapped to Help Organizers Explore Transformational Technology

ARLINGTON, VA—October 10, 2023—Watching the data analytics revolution gain momentum at an ever-quickening pace, Lippman Connects recognized the opportunity to help exhibition and convention professionals explore what this technology has to offer. The result is an expansive agreement with data analytics leader Bear Analytics.

In making the announcement, Sam Lippman, President, Lippman Connects, said, “Only a couple of years ago, data analytics was the tool of only the largest organizations. Thanks to the innovators at Bear Analytics, events of all sizes are discovering how to use their own data to make better decisions. That’s an outcome that aligns with the mission of Lippman Connects.”

Starting with Attendee Acquisition Roundtable on October 26 of this year, the relationship includes program content and event sponsorship of multiple 2024 roundtables as well as sponsorship of the Exhibition and Convention Executives Forum (ECEF), May 29, 2024, in Washington DC.

Speaking on behalf of Bear Analytics, Joe Colangelo, Co-founder and CEO, added, “As we broaden our customer base within the events industry, our goal is to further expand our thought leadership among event professionals looking to be more data-driven in their approach to event marketing, sales and overall strategy. Lippman Connects Programs provide the perfect forum for us.”
