Lumi, the global market leader in the provision of technology and services to facilitate the smooth running of AGMs, Investor events and member meetings, today announces the acquisition of Voting Partner, Germany. Headquartered in Nuremberg, Voting Partner has been closely aligned with Lumi for a number of years, as an exclusive partner covering the German market.
Frank Schoonhoven, Managing Director of Lumi Netherlands comments “This acquisition cements what has been a very successful, long-standing partnership and we are delighted to welcome the team from Voting Partner into Lumi. From our perspective, this acquisition continues to support our global strategy, as well as the opportunity to further expand our client portfolio across Europe”.
Thomas Wehrmann from Voting Partner added “Having worked closely with Lumi for many years, we are pleased to formalise our relationship and create Lumi Germany. Our team recognises the opportunity to drive further growth across our market, and we are excited to capitalise on the demand for hybrid and virtual meetings with Lumi’s world-leading technology”.
The adoption of technology to facilitate virtual meeting participation accelerated significantly as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, and has led to a hybrid meeting format emerging as the new normal for many organisations. Diversifying how shareholders, investors and members can attend and participate has led to increased engagement, with technology playing an increasingly integral part of ensuring accessibility and transparency.
Lumi is the leading digital platform facilitating in-room, hybrid and virtual AGMs, Investor and member meetings for the world’s largest corporations and membership organisations. It is the only platform that digitises the entire lifecycle of meetings in a single solution that enables inclusivity before, during and after the live meeting.
Based on proprietary, patented technology, Lumi provides software, hardware and services that assist registrars, Investor Relations Officers and event organisers to register stakeholders and provide live, secure polling, Q&A management services, and relevant reporting.
Lumi's recent acquisition has expanded its European footprint, with offices in France, Italy, The Netherlands, and Belgium. The company also operates in other regions such as APAC, The Middle East, Africa and the Americas. In most of its active markets, Lumi benefits from highly differentiated operations, thanks to experienced and renowned Managing Directors who lead each team in their respective countries.
