About Us

Technology for the Meeting & Event industry is outdated.

We are on a mission to transform it.

Our Story

Talia Mashiach saw an opportunity to revolutionize the event and hospitality industry through innovative technology. She founded an event services and destination management company in Chicago which she grew over the course of four years.

Leveraging the knowledge and experience she gained from that company, Talia began developing proprietary software to provide a comprehensive Event Commerce solution where all stakeholders in the meeting and events supply chain could request, order and pay on a global scale.

Eved launched in 2010 with a bold mission, to lead the transformation of the $770 billion meeting and event industry from a highly manual, fragmented traditional services sector into a new era of efficiency and automation.
