WeConvene and Intrado Digital Media Announce a Strategic Partnership to Enable Capital Markets to Bring Investor Engagement into a New Era; a Win for All Capital Markets Players

November 25, 2019

NEW YORK, Nov. 25, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- WeConvene, the largest investor access platform, and Intrado Digital Media, have today announced a strategic partnership that streamlines the way corporations engage with the capital markets.

The partnership leverages the leading IR Webhosting and Webcasting technology from Intrado Digital Media and WeConvene’s meeting management platform to deliver an end-to-end engagement solution. As a result, Intrado Digital Media clients will be able to use WeConvene’s scheduling technology to view the availability of their contacts and easily schedule in-person or virtual meetings via their IR websites and webcasts. The result is greater investor access and real-time shareholder engagement. For the first time ever, corporations will be able to connect with shareholders automatically and in real-time, meaning less time spent on logistics and scheduling, and an overall more seamless workflow for investor relations teams.

“We are truly excited to partner with Intrado Digital Media, as it brings us closer to delivering on our shared vision of creating a seamlessly connected ecosystem between the three sides of the capital markets, enabling them to engage in the most efficient way,” commented Radek Barnert, CEO at WeConvene. “This partnership offers a breadth and depth of engagement between investors, investor relations officers, the sell side and other shareholders that has been unavailable until now.”

“Our business has been built on enabling the IR Buyer to communicate efficiently and effectively with their audiences,” said Ben Chodor, President of Intrado Digital Media. “We are excited about how this partnership will set the groundwork for initiatives that change market behavior.”
