In January 2023, Ungerboeck rebranded to Momentus Technologies to unify the organization and vertical-specific software under one vision to meet the dynamically changing needs of the venue and event management industry. This was a critical step in our company’s history after the acquisitions of EventBooking, Priava, Showorks and Risk Manager two years prior. Today, our brand represents what we’ve become since we started on this path — a portfolio of brilliant people, modern technology and science-backed solutions to provide our customers with the best solutions for venue and event management.Learn More
