World’s Leading Networking Platform and Event App for Conferences Evolves Current Offering into a Comprehensive Integrated Management Platform for Event Organizers
New York (18, February, 2015) – Bizzabo, the world’s leading networking platform and event app, announced today the launch of the first ever Event Success Platform. The all-encompassing management platform provides event organizers with the ability to increase productivity and ticketing revenues, build truly engaged communities through big data insights, and effectively manage the event from start to finish – all from a single holistic platform. It is the first tool that empowers small to medium event organizers with a complete system to promote, manage and monetize their events.
“The Bizzabo Event Success Platform is the next step in the natural development of our product – a comprehensive system where event organizers can actually take more ownership of their event branding and overall event experience”, said CEO Eran Ben-Shushan of Bizzabo. “After working closely with thousands of organizers we understood the need for a holistic event software that works. We wanted to free the industry from a reliance on multiple siloed tech solutions that increase an event organizer’s workload, minimize their ability to measure success and limit productivity. By evolving our current product offering we are able to provide a one stop shop for all event technology needs, delivering the same quality we’re known for through a much more enhanced and complete experience from start to success.”
A typical organizer of a midsize conference can employ more than seven different tools to run a single event. Website builders, ticketing platforms, email services, spreadsheets for contact management, polling solutions for collecting feedback, event apps for providing event info and networking, guest check-in software and more. Each tool is sourced from a different vendor with its own pricing, contract, interface and analytics, raising costs, decreasing efficiency and making the task of collecting information in real-time especially challenging. Using the Bizzabo Event Success Platform, organizers are free to focus on creating superior event experiences.
Starting today, organizers of professional events can use Bizzabo’s Event Success Platform to create an event website, sell tickets, launch an event app, initiate email marketing campaigns, build engaged networking communities and get to know their audience using a smart contact management system, specifically tailored for events. The platform helps organizers measure success by generating real-time analytics on each feature giving a snapshot of all aspects of an event’s progress as it happens. The success dashboard allows organizers to deliver on measurable ROI to stakeholders, and track how are they doing compared to their goals.
The Event Success Platform has already been used by an exclusive group of dozens of conferences from around the world before the official launch this week. It allowed these event organizers to have a firsthand experience of the features of the new offering.
“With the new Bizzabo platform we were able to increase our tickets sales and save valuable time thanks to Bizzabo’s all-in-one solution”, said Ofir Leitner, Founder of the Mobile Monetization Summit. “The boost in sales due to attendees’ social shares generated by Bizzabo was key, but of equal importance was the ability to more effectively manage the event to help us improve the experience for attendees and streamline the work process for us. It has removed many of the headaches normally associate with these events while providing great insight to help us prepare for the next event.”
The integrated event management platform comes at the end of an exciting year of growth for Bizzabo. 2014 saw the release of real-time polling and survey features, cross platform agenda speakers and content management, the passing of the 4,000 professional conferences milestone, and a new funding round. The platform is an organic expansion of Bizzabo’s current offering, strengthening its presence within the meetings and events industry.
Launched in July 2012, Bizzabo is the leading networking and mobile platform for event organizers and attendees, and is now unveiling the world’s first event success platform. It helps organizers create successful events by empowering them to build amazing websites, sell tickets, grow communities, go mobile and maximize event experiences – using a beautiful, user friendly platform.
Bizzabo is used by thousands of conference organizers from around the globe. It’s available online and across iOS and Android devices. The company has offices in New York and Israel and was co-founded by Eran Ben-Shushan, Alon Alroy, and Boaz Katz.
