Attendify, a leading event app platform, is partnering with Eventbrite to boost attendee engagement by creating private social networking apps. Event planners can now connect their Eventbrite account to Attendify to build apps with a private social timeline, photo sharing, messaging, and attendee profiles that automatically sync with Eventbrite.
“Event apps have taken off in recent years, but most event planners struggle to see a return on investment or even get attendees to download their app,” says Michael Balyasny, Attendify’s Co-Founder & CEO. “They want app to boost engagement, help attendees network, and leverage the app for a more dynamic experience. Our partnership with Eventbrite makes that much easier to achieve.”
Several new features were developed specifically for the Eventbrite integration including ticket scanning as a login method. Attendees can scan the barcode on their ticket instead of having to enter a username and password to login and start using the app. Event planners can also choose to sell tickets through their app and configure other integration settings using Attendify’s web based management tools.
Attendify’s mission of boosting engagement through event apps has caught on with Google, AstraZeneca, Philips, Bloomberg, American Express, and AOL who have all used the platform to create private networking apps for their events. “We’re seeing attendees engage with the app days before events get started and huge usage spikes once it gets going,” says Michael. “Events using our social platform have seen averages as high as 60 sessions per attendee over the course of a 3 day event with thousands of photos and messages sent.”
Trying out an app and connecting Eventbrite is easy, with free registration on Attendify.com and instant preview tools that make creating and testing your app a breeze. The integration will continue to be enhanced with new features planned for the coming months to further leverage Eventbrite’s leading registration platform.
