About Fourwaves

Fourwaves is a fast-growing Canadian startup that recently opened an office in Brussels, to better serve its European customers as well as dynamite its growth on the old continent!

Since its inception in 2012, Fourwaves’ purpose is to support research and the whole scientific community by helping them host their scientific & academic conferences. Our customers are research centers, universities, government agencies (e.g. NASA) and R&D-focused companies (e.g. BASF) all around the world.

Our platform is an all-in-one event planning solution for in-person and online scientific conferences. After having halted its growth in 2020, the COVID pandemic unleashed Fourwaves potential with its unique virtual features, leading to a nearly 200% growth in 2021. In the coming years, our ambition is to become an international hub dedicated to science and research. Want to know more: have a look here.
