Unlocking the Power of Local Events: Local Media Consortium Partners with Evvnt

Evvnt

Miami, Florida – Tuesday, 2nd April 2024


Today Evvnt, the local events discovery and ticketing platform,  announced a newly formed partnership with the Local Media Consortium (LMC), a strategic alliance of local media companies, that unlocks the power of local events, providing members with the tools and resources needed to thrive in the events industry.  This new revenue stream for media companies is made possible by leveraging Evvnt’s unique technology and their experience with optimizing consumer engagement with local events. LMC members have the opportunity to become even more integral parts of their communities while driving growth and audience engagement.


According to Reuters Institute for the Study of Journalism, events have emerged as the fourth most important revenue stream for publishers in 2024. Despite this, many publishers have yet to fully capitalize on the revenue potential and audience engagement opportunities that come with promoting and ticketing events.



A survey conducted by Nielsen reveals that 82% of consumers are more likely to trust and choose a local provider over a national chain. This statistic underscores the immense opportunity for members of the LMC to establish themselves as locally-recognized, consumer-facing events brands in their communities.


"Events are a priority for publishers who want to increase engagement with local audiences, raise their brand awareness and diversify their revenue stream" said Fran Wills, CEO of the LMC.  "Partnering with Evvnt provides a turnkey way for the LMC’s members  to launch a successful event program in their community and optimize this profitable revenue opportunity."


Richard Green, CEO and founder of Evvnt said: "Evvnt is thrilled to partner with the Local Media Consortium, the leading, innovative alliance of  over 5,000 local news outlets across the U.S. and Canada. Together, we are committed to empowering local media outlets with innovative solutions, enhancing their capabilities, and creating new opportunities for growth and audience engagement. This partnership exemplifies our dedication to supporting the thriving ecosystems of local media, local events and local communities. Together, we can build new revenue streams to ensure local news organizations continue their important mission of providing timely, accurate and compelling information for the communities they serve.”
