Every business has a story, tell us yours.
VoiceHive was born out of my experience as a professional emcee and trivia host. I wanted an easier way for the audience to interact with the people on stage and with each other. So, sometime in 2012 I connected with Andy Grant to found VoiceHive and we began building out our event technology platform. Now we are involved in all aspects of events. We continue to enhance our live interactive tools, as well as adding features to support many other event management tasks. Our customers love that we can provide customized solutions without the customized prices.
