A2Z Events

Well suited for sessions and events information with the exception of large white space areas when viewed. Depending on how your organization is set up the only "less appropriate" area for us would be the actual accounting side, but that is because our accounting department prefers to maintain invoices, etc out of their own system. However, the invoices provided by A2Z does aid them when the are reconciling to their own system

Guidebook

Most of our meetings are too small to bother using it but it is great for our larger workshops. If you have a complex schedule or agenda it is better than a paper agenda and allows you to adjust changes live in the agenda during the meetings. We only use it a few times a year because we only have a few larger meetings.

Cons

A2Z Events

  • Coming from software where I had a huge amount of access to the "backend", it would be nice to be able to manipulate areas of the Exhibit Floorplan a little easier with regard to items like tables, chairs, stages, etc. Maybe add some icons that could be pasted into the floorplan for faster success?
  • The agenda within A2Z does not give you the ability to host on your own conference site.
  • The agenda view is sometimes perceived as being too long, there's a lot of extra "white space".

  • Sometimes we have had issues with it not updating our changes very quickly and while at a conference that can be problematic.
  • I have had difficulty making edits or changes from the mobile app so I have to go grab the computer to fix something.
  • Some attendees have had issues downloading and logging in depending on which mobile phones that they are using. It may be operator error.

Alternatives Considered

A2Z Events

A2Z is so much better than ExpoCad. It is easy for the exhibit sales team to use and it is easy for the attendees and vendors to use. Pulling the program book is a cinch now. I don't understand how people still use ExpoCad?!

Guidebook

We use both but for completely different reasons. We use Guidebook to manage our attendees and communicate with them during large workshops. We use Airtable as a spreadsheet type database for tracking things.

Return on Investment

A2Z Events

  • Positive - it provides one place from which primary players in the conference could pull information. A2Z maintains consistency and lowers the discrepancy issue when everyone tries to keep their own little database.
  • Positive - Time Saver.
  • No negative that I can recall.

Guidebook

  • None really as we are a non profit and these meetings we use it for are free
