This lo­gis­tics-in­dus­try me­dia com­pany saw half its busi­ness wiped out when it had to can­cel in­per­son events, but it’s still grow­ing thanks to vir­tual con­fer­ences, a new on­line broad­cast net­work and a de­ci­sion to dou­ble down on its data-an­a­lyt­ics plat­form to help clients set prices and op­ti­mize routes. The four-year-old com­pany hosted 300,000 at vir­tual events this year, up from the 5,000 it planned to host in per­son. In­creased spon­sor­ships for these gath­er­ings are ex­pected to boost sales to $19 mil­lion this year, up from $11 mil­lion in 2019.
