Top 3 Reasons to Use an Event App

Event apps are a great tool to help improve your attendee engagement and encourage networking whether your event is virtual, in-person, or hybrid.

Whether you host in-person, virtual or hybrid events, an event app can be very helpful for boosting audience engagement. It is known that video conferencing platforms such as Zoom have their limitations. Given its few options for audience engagement and security concerns, an add-on in the form of an event app can provide interaction and networking capabilities.

1. Makes Event Organizers’ Lives Easier

No Downloads
A big concern many event organizers have is that attendees will not be willing to download an app to engage with the event. You’re right! BuzzIt thought of that too. That’s why your event’s page can be accessed through the user’s web browser (e.g. Google or Safari) on their phone or computer!
Don’t Need to Print Programs or Create a Schedule
There are a lot of moving parts to planning and running events. An event app can minimize the headache (+ waste!) of printing programs. By integrating your schedule and speaker, sponsor, and attendee profiles right into the app.
Easy Set-Up + Requires Minimal Attention During the Event!
Setting up an event app is quick and easy. All you have to do is integrate your speakers and sponsors into your unique event page. It also requires minimal attention during showtime, so you can focus on doing what you do best!

2. Engages Your Audience

Any event can benefit from a way to ask and answer questions in real-time. Encourage your audience to ask questions on a Q&A board to incentivize attendees to form strong and meaningful connections.
If you’re hosting a competition, voting is a great way to interact with your audience members. For example, you can have an “Audience Favourite” category with an honorary mention or special prize for the winner! This will give your audience a stake in the competition and increase engagement.

3. Provides Networking Opportunities

It’s possible to network through event apps too. Audience members can chat with each other. The speaker, sponsor, and attendee profiles allow participants to discover each other on social media, provide website links, and/or email addresses to make connections easier. 4. It Doesn’t Have to be Expensive!
Who Says Providing your Audience with a Great Event Experience has to Come with a Large Price Tag?

Expenses can add up very quickly in event planning. Thankfully, engaging your audience and providing networking opportunities doesn’t have to come at a high price! Whether you are a non-profit or for-profit event organizer for a large or small event, an event app shouldn’t break the bank. BuzzIt offers transparent monthly and one-off event pricing for you to find what works best for your events.
