Denver entrepreneur, Cody Sudmeier, is VEBO’s CEO. Sudmeier launched VEBO on a pilot basis in 2015.
“VEBO has been growing quickly since launching in Colorado and we have been averaging annual sales growth of 300%,” said Sudmeier. “Engaged couples are choosing to collect experiences instead of more stuff.”
Jamie Regehr is a co-founder and leads VEBO’s expansion efforts. Regehr explained, “We regularly perform market analyses to identify our expansion priorities. We are beyond excited to be expanding to such a huge market and diverse state as California. We are also thrilled to be expanding to Nevada, as we will target engaged couples living in the state, but also couples who live in other areas but travel to Las Vegas.”
Wedding registries are a $19B industry in the US. 91% of US couples register for gifts. Historically, the leaders in this industry were retailers that provide household items. This includes companies such as Bed, Bath & Beyond, Target, and Crate & Barrel.
While the industry is dominated by traditional retailers, alternative registries are gaining in popularity. The majority of the alternative registries specialize in cash gifts. VEBO is the first registry exclusively dedicated to experiential gifts.
