Dan Hodges

Founder and CEO

Dan Hodges — Founder and CEO of Custom Curated Experience — has been a pioneer in the advertising, technology and marketing industry for nearly three decades. He directs Custom Curated Experience, a world leader in curating events, transforming businesses, innovating products and services, and making breakthrough connections. Custom Curated Experience works with Fortune 500 companies as well as cutting-edge start-ups.

The inspiration for Custom Curated Experience stemmed from a partnership with the U.S. State Department that focused on finding innovative ways to use mobile technology to assist with disaster relief following the 2010 Haiti earthquake. The idea of developing a process that would provide executives with immersive learning, business development opportunities, and strategic connections—while keeping the bottom line in mind—was born. Custom Curated Experience created a groundbreaking program for the Mobile World Congress that has since been rolled out to other leading industry events. To date, over seventy organizations have participated in this program, which has been formalized as Custom Curated Experience.
