Eventjoy – Event Planning from A-to-Z

Planning a major event—like a conference or a summit—can feel like a monumental task. Tickets need to be sold, event websites need to be designed, and attendees need to be checked-in. Eventjoy is a web-based application that can streamline this process for overworked event planners, bringing all the most important tools for planning conferences and other big events under one roof.

Eventjoy lets you pick and choose which tools you need for your upcoming event. Start by promoting your event with a custom website and downloadable mobile app. Once your website is up, you can start selling tickets to attendees online. Collect both money and attendee data (like contact information, for example), without lifting a finger. Eventjoy manages every aspect of the ticket sales process, and even manages the attendee check-in process with digital tools and barcodes that can be scanned on the day of the event. Get attendees excited for that big day by sending real-time messages through your mobile app, and create polls to find out what types of things people would like to see at the venue. Using the mobile app you created through Eventjoy, your guests can even discover who else is planning to attend the event and network with potential business contacts in the days before they arrive.

Using all the data and information you generated through Eventjoy, you can create displays for televisions and projectors at your venue. Highlight activity around the event or showcase social media buzz as a way to build the hype and get people excited about sharing their experiences. Eventjoy is an excellent all-in-one solution for event organizers planning large gatherings like conferences and forums.

    Why wouldn’t you mention Eventbrite in this review — at least among the competitors. Aren’t they the leaders in this sort of thing?
