Active Network Plays Role in White House Easter Egg Roll

The Active Network handled the ticket lottery for the White House Easter Egg Roll.

The party for families with children featured several games on the White House grounds, including a race to determine who can move an Easter egg the fastest. The White House said it expected 30,000 people for the event.

Active Network is a San Diego-based business that provides online registration for the Recreation.gov website — which processed registrations for the White House event. The Active Network has been managing the White House Egg Roll since 2010.

Vista Equity Partners bought the Active Network in November for $1.05 billion. Previously, the Active Network was a publicly traded company. The last full year for which Active reported financial results was 2012, and it was a good one. The business grew its revenue by 24 percent to $419 million.
