Eventcore, a Seattle startup focused on event planning and management, has raised $4.1 million to grow on a national level.

Alan Frazier’s East Seattle Partners led the funding round. Nick Zabriskie, a partner at East Seattle Partners, will join eventcore’s Board of Directors.

The cash infusion allows the 46-person company to a national sales and marketing presence speed up product development. Up until now, eventcore primarily focused on the West Coast, but it aims to gain a national foothold with these moves.

Eventcore has been around since the 1980s, focusing purely on technology solutions at events to begin with. Over the years, the company has grown to cover every part of an event, from registering guests and finding lodging, to managing on-site issues and scheduling sessions.

“Our customers want more from event technology,” Mark Johnson, eventcore CEO, said in a statement. “more real-time information, more attendee and presenter tech tools, and more third-party integrations. This partnership with our new investor group will allow us to expedite the release of these items, improving the customer experience overall.”

Eventcore manages events as small as 35 people, to as large as more than 35,000. The company said on its website it has worked on events like the Microsoft Tech Summit, Zillow Premier Agent Forum, AT&T Shape and Red Hat Summit, among others.
