Company Overview

Forj has a strong history of looking ahead and making a positive impact. The foundation of our technology was developed over the past ten years where it has been used to build and support an online community of HR professionals. Forj was formed in the summer of 2020 to meet the pressing needs of hundreds of associations searching for a solution for their in-person events.

Inspired by our success in the HR community and in supporting over 150 virtual tradeshows and conferences, Virtual Event Place became Forj. To meet a much larger market opportunity, Forj will offer a broader and bolder vision and value proposition for associations and professional membership groups.

We chose the name Forj because we believe in the power of forging relationships and strengthening bonds between community members in pursuit of a common goal. It’s a name that reflects our commitment to forge ahead and bring innovative solutions to our clients and their communities, as well as their drive to bring people together to bring great value to the world.
