Santa Fe-based Circa, formerly known as EventGeek, is bring in a community events manager specifically to work with Santa Fe and New Mexico nonprofit and community organizations to use the company’s event management platform.

Circa’s flagship product provides meeting calendars, budgeting and generates sales through online, hybrid or live events to large corporations, CEO and founder Alex Patriquin said.

A Circa employee will help local organizations manage their online events.

“We don’t usually do that,” said Patriquin, adding that large corporations have staff to manage events.

The Circa event management technology will enable local organizations to manage fundraising and membership during an online event, he said.

Circa also has a virtual and hybrid event production studio with green screen that event moderators or hosts can use instead of their home or office.

Patriquin earlier this year moved EventGeek from the San Francisco Bay Area to Santa Fe and rebranded the company Circa. The company also shifted from live event planning to online events as the coronavirus pandemic took hold.

Circa has two employees who work near the Santa Fe Plaza, and it intends to add four employees in January. The company also has 13 remote employees, Patriquin said.
