ACTIVE has combined the power of big data methodology with over 15 years of its registration history to offer customers actionable and unique insights and analytics.
“We look forward to working with ACTIVE to better understand the trends and competitive landscape that affect our events.”
“With the launch of Activity Cloud, we are offering unparalleled business intelligence to event organizers to help them drive participation growth and increase revenue,” said Darko Dejanovic, Chief Executive Officer at ACTIVE Network. “We have made significant investments and have spent the past 18 months with our team of data scientists while leveraging our relationship with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) to aggregate registration data, real-time participant behaviors and social media trends. Our goal was to create in-depth insights and analytics to help our customers optimize revenue, increase participation, understand the competitive landscape and make better business decisions. The use of data to more intelligently manage all types of activity and participation-based events is a game-changer for our industry and our customers.”
ACTIVE Network Activity Cloud seamlessly weaves together data from activity organizers and participants with powerful insights such as participant propensity, social media trends and household demographics, providing event organizers with actionable intelligence that has previously not been available in this market.

I opened Sportech, the first triathlon pro shop, in 1983. Our first shop was in Irvine, California at a very modest 1200 square feet. We quickly outgrew this store and opened another in across from UC Irvine about double the size and later added another store in Dana Point in 1985. My partner (Steve Brugh) and I felt there was a burgeoning market of triathlon and the individual sports of swim, bike, and run.
