Likelihood to Recommend

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

Whova

Whova does a great job as long as you don't have to track time and attendance. I would recommend to others for ease of use and features that help simplify the conference planner's workload. I was really excited about Whova and how easy it was to create a conference. However, it falls short as a CE issuing platform. If they would work on adding those features, I would consider using them again.

Pros

A2Z Events

  • Very easy for the exhibitors and the attendees to navigate the floor.
  • It looks very crisp and is easy to print.
  • The online exhibitor search field is awesome - so easy for our attendees to map out who they want to visit.
  • The support team is very responsive and the training opportunities are flexible.

Whova

  • Whova is affordable! Out of all of the solutions we researched, the price for the value was extremely competitive.
  • The Whova management dashboard online was easy to use and able to be managed by multiple people on our team.
  • The app was easy for our attendees to use and they enjoyed interacting with other attendees through the bulletin board and messaging service.
  • The name badges for our attendees were easy to design and print straight from Whova which saved us a lot of time and ensured their names, titles, and companies were consistent with what they typed at registration.
  • Whova's event evaluation integration with SurveyMonkey was seamless and easy to use. We had used SurveyMonkey for our event in the past, and it was great that users could access the evaluation straight from the Whova app.

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".

Whova

  • Agenda design options are limited. There are more things you can't do than you can do to the agenda.
  • Buggy -- does not work on iPads in vertical orientation.
  • Customer support is limited.
  • Don't expect to cancel an event and get your money back. I had clients decline the application after 1 week (months before the event)-- and Whova refused to issue a refund.
  • Whova branding is overpowering. Everything has Whova branding all over it. Your brand barely exists. Not one email has your brand on it and customers/moderators/speakers do not realize who Whova is or why they got the email. These emails need the ability to be modified.
  • Customer messaging goes out without warning and most messages cannot be modified.
  • Sponsor/Exhibitors is a half-baked implementation of a beautiful idea. Unfortunately, Exhibitors cannot see what their page looks like when done, so you have to send them a screenshot, thus obliterating the promised efficiency that you hoped to gain. You have to set up all sponsors manually. This needs to be a simple checkbox in the exhibitor area.

Whova is quite user friendly, and helpful for the conference planner. It has features such as sample emails to attendees and import abilities if you have your sessions on a spreadsheet to avoid having to enter each session manually. Another thing we didn't like was the inability to allow attendees to enter a pre-recorded session only when it is scheduled to be presented. It's either all pre-recorded can be viewed once the conference opens, or none.

It was a great experience. A last minute change for our organization that has a conference every other year. I was disappointed that the conference was not going to happen this year. Then didn't expect much when it was changed to an online conference. What a surprise. It was great! So much more than I expected.

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?!

Buzz is difficult. I wish we could use Whova for teaching because it is so simple and mobile! I can't even get my classes uploaded easily on the Buzz platform. Can Whova increase its usages to include online teaching for the K-12 levels? That would be amazing!

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.

Whova

  • I didn't pay to use the technology; was a recipient as a result of attending a conference. HIGH ROI for me as a made a number of new contacts even though I spent the first full day listening to presentations. Having the app allowed me to do the networking I came to do without having to be seated next to the person I wanted to meet.
