Connectiv Announces the Acquisition of LAB Miami Ventures’ Events Portfolio
Connectiv, the team behind InsureTech Connect (“ITC”) led by Jay Weintraub who launched and sold both LeadsCon and MAU, announced today that it has acquired the events portfolio of Miami-based LAB Miami Ventures. LAB Miami Ventures portfolio includes events in the Logistics, Travel and Real Estate spaces. Events produced by Connectiv will kick-off with Logistics beginning in 2021.
With some predicting the global logistics market to be worth almost $13 billion by 2023 there is no better time to focus on a space so greatly impacted by AI, machine learning and automation.
“Understanding how we can use these innovations to improve productivity, efficiency and experience will be integral to the evolution of the industry,” said Pamela Granoff, Director of Events at LAB Miami Ventures who will be speer-heading the launch of Logistics under Connectiv. “As one of the fastest-growing verticals, the Logistics space is in desperate need of a truly global event, the kind of events Connectiv is well versed in producing. Being a part of this team will provide us with the resources to better serve the industry with a multi-day world class gathering.”
“In the same way that we have created the world’s premier Insurtech event in ITC, with 8,000 attendees from over 65 countries expected next September, we look forward to doing the same for the Supply Chain and Logistics industry,” said Jay Weintraub, CEO of Connectiv. “Pamela’s passion for being industry first and people first aligns perfectly with how we think of connecting.”
Connectiv expects over 2,000 attendees comprised of tech entrepreneurs, investors and Supply Chain / Logistics executives to hear 250+ speakers at the Spring 2021 event which will be held in Las Vegas.
Previous speakers at the LAB Ventures Logistics events have included:
Martine Eshkenazi, Strategic Initiatives Lead, Uber Eats
