VANCOUVER, Wash. – November 13, 2017 Event technology startup Hubb today announced a partnership with ChickTech to provide its event content management solution for ChickTech’s 2018 ACT-W National Conference.

With less time needed to manually manage content, organizers can focus on thinking strategically about their events and create a better event experience for their attendees. Hubb works with customers such as Microsoft, Tableau, BIO, Red Hat and Intel to help their in-house event teams oversee the programs for their major conferences and meetings.
