KNOXVILLE, TENNESSEE – Jan. 29, 2019 – EventBooking, a venue management software company, just reached 1,000 client venues.
Founded in 1999, EventBooking’s first client was Thompson Boling arena, which is located in their hometown of Knoxville, Tennessee, and serves as the home of University of Tennessee basketball. In the 20 years following, EventBooking has found its way onto five continents and 23 countries.

It might not be over night, but that’s not necessarily the goal. My journey has been slow, steady, and upward. And I’ve been able to savor it the whole time.”
