Evia is a company with deep roots in the Seattle technology community and in digital event media. Founded in 1993 as Tri-Digital by Mark Monrean, Roger Swearingen and Jeffrey Fessler (a company president, a techie and a marketer), the company began when these three co-workers from a Seattle technology company realized there was a huge demand for digital media content on CD-ROMs that could be used in presentations and documents.

Evia has evolved over the years to serve the needs of a growing number of clients interested in harnessing the power of video to engage audiences. We have grown from a three-person company with one primary client to one of the top three full-service companies in the world that streams, captures and distributes video online for events. Today, Evia serves hundreds of clients including Amazon, Starbucks, Microsoft and Tableau, providing digital event solutions at events across the globe.
