Avivant Partners

Insightful I Independent I Innovative
And above all, dependable, particularly in the face of pressure.

The name "Avivant" itself, with its deep roots coming from Hebrew and French languages, serves as a poignant reflection of intersections. These intersections are not just in name, but in our brand's philosophy—a harmony between industries, bridging domain expertise, and our innate ability to represent our clients with eloquence and fluency that makes them shine.

The logo visually reflects the A and V sounds in the brand’s name. These two letters come together signifying the meeting of languages (A from Aviva, a Hebrew word meaning springlike; V from Vivant, a French word meaning alive) literally, but also the meeting of cultures, domains, people, and ideas in a more figurative sense. After all, Avivant Partners is in the business of managing events and associations, where minds meet and new ideas are created.

“Human connection has been challenged.
We're here to strengthen it through our association and event work.”
