NORWALK: E-touches, an event management software company, has purchased Zentila, a web-based venue sourcing and booking site for corporate event planners. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed, but the move is to expand E-touches’ footprint in Orlando, Florida. Zentilla “boasts a strong convention-business industry.”
Zentilla CEO Mike Mason will join the company as E-touches vice president of sourcing and Zentila is expected to maintain its company name and Orlando presence, as well as its 15 employees. However, E-touches’ spokeswoman Kristen Carvalho told the Orlando Business Journal that it plans to hire about 35 more people by the end of 2017. The combined firm employs approximately 165 employees. E-touches has raised more than $30 million in venture financing in the past six years.
