Get to know the Webex Events story

Early Days

After spending a couple of years perfecting their product market fit as Purdue University students, Socio’s founders struck out on their own to disrupt the events market with an application built for in-person event management. They excelled, doubling in size and revenue each of the next two years. 


When the pandemic hit in March 2020,Socio shifted its product focus to meet the needs of virtual and hybrid events, leading the charge in a new era of events.

In addition to product innovations, Socio stood up a Professional Services team and continued hiring to keep up with the explosion in demand for virtual events, reaching thousands of customers in 80+ countries. In recognition of this growth, Socio won the 2021 Mira Awards for “Scale Up of the Year.”

Cisco Socio Acquisition

In 2021, Socio was officially acquired by Cisco to further our joint vision of transforming the event industry by creating the world’s first completely end-to-end hybrid event and meeting technology suite.

We share Cisco’s sentiment that the future of events, like the future of work, will be hybrid. With that comes increased complexity for event managers as they seek to host inclusive and meaningful events whether attendees join in-person or virtually. In March 2022, Socio was renamed Webex Events.
