Our history

The company’s story begins in 2020 with the arrival of COVID-19. Christopher Leduc, owner and founder of BonSpot (2016) and Phazes (2011), has doubled his efforts and his resources by surrounding himself with a team of experts in order to quickly offer solutions to the urgent needs of the event industry and to help as many businesses as possible.

When its founder, Christopher Leduc, was contacted by the organizers of the Saint-Hyacinthe Agricultural Exhibition, he already had a solution to offer them to organize their event virtually. For the past 8 years, they have trusted him to produce audiovisual and advertising productions. This well-established entrepreneur from the region is well known for his ingenuity, his tenacity and his ability to carry out large-scale projects.

This collaboration allowed for the virtual production of the largest agricultural festival in Canada, which has been making history for over 183 years. This first mandate won second place in Canadian innovation at the CAFE (Canadian Association Of Fairs and Exhibitions) Gala.

 

Umanize’s mission is to humanize the virtual user experience in a world where digital transformation is accelerating. To offer even more affordable solutions, Umanize is taking advantage of its growth to develop different templates for different types of events at accessible prices.

In a short period of time, Umanize has positioned itself as a Quebec leader in event technology solutions with its immersive platform and its numerous functionalities. Umanize has confirmed the extraordinary potential of its solution by developing partnerships with agencies and companies that are leaders in their field.
