What is the “problem” that your tool seeks to solve?

Attendease brings beauty, ease-of-use, cost savings and innovative technology to the world of enterprise event management. While Attendease’s end-to-end suite of tools provides both event managers and attendees with a wonderful online experience, Attendease is engineered to be easily customized in order to pixel-perfectly match any design as well as smoothly integrate with existing systems. Attendease is the modern alternative to the outdated, closed and complex systems that have become the industry standard.

What is the best audience for this tool? Corporate events? Social? Other? Large? Small?

Attendease is designed to power large conferences or festivals that offer a multitude of sessions, speakers and venues. Our strength is in our scheduling tools, from building the schedule on the admin side to publishing it for attendees. While Attendease is useful for running one-off events, our clients enjoy huge cost and time savings by leveraging Attendease’s cloning feature to publish hundreds of events that share the same pre-designed templates.

What does your tool help event planners do better?

Attendease saves event planners time by offering a breadth of enterprise-level tools that cover the majority of the online event management spectrum. Attendease’s integrated feature set is also designed to allow event managers to easily and intuitively make changes and publish them immediately to their event website, mobile app, or directly to attendees themselves. By combining real-world event experience and the latest web technologies, Attendease maximizes an event planner’s efficiency, productivity and ability to impress.

 

How is your tool different from/better than the competition?

Attendease has a unique combination of features that set it apart from many platforms on the market. These features include:

–       A revolutionary drag-and-drop schedule builder to slot sessions across multiple venues

–       Easy and intuitive drag-and-drop form building interface for registration and surveys forms

–       Custom, mobile-friendly event websites that pixel perfectly match existing branding

–       Easy reuse (via ‘cloning’) of pre-designed templates for multiple/recurring events

–       Mobile-friendly attendee scheduling without requiring the overhead of a mobile app

–       Ability for any developer to modify the event’s look and feel via CSS and JavaScript

What is the single coolest feature of your product?

The Attendease Schedule Builder. It combines a modern, drag-and-drop interface with advanced functionality and ease-of-use. Our schedule builder has been adopted by some of the world’s largest tech conferences and powers a schedule accessed by over 30,000 attendees and features thousands of sessions. We believe our schedule builder is an unparalleled tool that can help event planners greatly simplify the scheduling process.

Anything else we need to know?

Our event websites are totally customizable with CSS and Javascript. This allows for a high degree of control over styles and functionality. Some of our clients have customized their event sites scheduled to perfectly match their company website without even requiring our involvement.

 

This weekly series spotlights a new tech tool that is designed to help make planning events much more seamless. Whether it’s using event software to track every detail from start to finish or mobile apps that deliver content to attendees’ fingertips, these technologies allow planners to divert their stress to more critical issues like deciding which napkin color looks best.
