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

Save money by having a single tool to promote events and engage attendees. Generate more revenue by leveraging your community (sponsors, advertisers, cross-selling your services, jobs, materials,…).

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

From small to large conferences and networking events. The largest event was a business school alumni conference for 1,000 delegates, we are hosting a Gaming Festival of 36,000 people in May 2015.

What does your tool help event planners do better?

Saves time as all-in-one tool (reduce duplications) and engage audiences before, during and after the event increasing online visitors traffic up to 12 times.

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

We brand, integrate everything and we are capable to customise the solution (add special new features) as every client has different needs and their events aim to be “Best in class”.
For instance, as it’s all integrated, our event app allows to have 100% of your attendees profiles and encourage engagement even with the ones who did not download the app.

What is the single coolest feature of your product?

The private event on-line networking area and its associated community, being all responsive and mobile. It encourages attendees to come back again and again to the event page to network and access content, and once the event has passed, the conversation can continue in the community and more attendees from other events join so every event the organiser runs, the bigger is the community and higher the revenue opportunities.

Anything else we need to know?
