Entrepreneur Daphne Hoppenot, The Vendry’s founder, studied engineering in college and worked at a high-growth B2B tech company called Yext for the first eight years of her career. There, she ran partnerships and was constantly hosting or attending business events of all types. She was inspired to launch The Vendry after realizing how under-resourced the teams planning these events were in sourcing both creative inspiration and the venues and vendors they needed for their events. From this, the Vendry, a professional network and marketplace for the corporate events industry, was born. The Vendry serves as a resource connecting planners with the best agencies, venues, and vendors for their events.
