Really like the appearance of reporting and the web booking.

Eventbrite

Eventbrite will really help you if you need to host a single event, or a series of events. In fact, it might be appropriate for something as simple as a family or school reunion where you want to easily build a landing page and collect payment. Eventbrite is also sufficient for B2B marketing teams and large events. Eventbrite will do better on the more simple end of the event spectrum. For a business with hundreds of events and complex integration needs, it might not provide all that you want

Pros

  • I like the appearance of the booking confirmations - it is more visually appealing.
  • The booking module is fairly simple and user friendly.
  • It works with our campus financial system and allows the system to take payments for bookings, which we cannot do with EMS currently.

  • Organized well for event logistics/questions: great to refer to before, during or even after an event (time/location/attendees etc.)
  • Great way of communicating with attendees: whether in a public post on the event page or handling follow up afterwards
  • Trusted brand that many companies are using: don't have to worry about spam events

Cons

  • I really like the look and feel of ActiveNet Reporting, but it isn't extremely customizable. Maybe there is something I am missing, but other employees have shared that same feedback.
  • It would be nice to have the system synchronize with other software we use. (EMS, StarRez, etc.) When planning conferences, we currently have hotel guests and registration that we would like to share information for through each system. Currently it is just double data entry.
  • Would like to be able to add more resources and details to a room booking and have the corresponding departments be notified of the order/track inventory.

  • Finding events organically (I've only used Eventbrite for events that have been sent my way)
  • Communicating other features/functionality that the average user may not know (I have a feeling I'm not using the platform to it's fullest potential)
  • Can't think of any other cons really; it serves its purpose pretty well in my opinion

So easy to setup and build an event, especially for someone like me with limited programming experience.

Alternatives Considered

I would continue using ActiveNet over EMS only because it connects and talks back to Banner, which EMS currently lacks. Otherwise I am not sure I would choose it over anything else as the functionality isn't quite the same as the competition.

Eventbrite was selected by my internship advisors. They preferred to continue using eventbrite as it was an effective way to communicate with event registrants and track event participation.

Return on Investment

  • Not sure yet.
  • It is newer to me and my department.
  • Double data entry which is just extra man hours.

  • Eventbrite has had a positive impact on time-management but streamlining the time spent on event coordination.
  • It has made event registration a much more painless task.
