Bizzabo

Bizzabo is great for hybrid events. Or for virtual events with totally separate sessions. It's less of a fit for virtual events that have multiple agenda items but ideally one stream. Bizzabo is not great for speakers that are not technically savvy. Sometimes the video stream functionality has required troubleshooting or hasn't worked if the speaker just left a Microsoft Teams meeting. Bizzabo is great for giving ownership to event planners, email communications, and the website. With relatively little training, it's easy to get them to create or update emails and pages from existing templates. The ability to manage tickets, registrants and emails in one platform is wonderful as well.

I can't provide a scenario where Dryfta could be well suited. I guess it's a matter of delivering what has been promised on time, and without having to invest thousands of hours in extra work, as it was in our case. If it worked properly it could be a good tool for any conference.

Pros

Bizzabo

  • Bizzabo makes setting up registration for an event very simple. You can make it more complex if you require that, but if you only need to capture basics and payment, it is easy to set up.
  • Making a custom event website is also very easy. There are a lot of widgets build in with content you might need, such as Speakers. While it takes a little bit of use to figure out how it works, once you know the basics, creating a multi page website with all your event info is super easy.
  • Creating custom ticket types and promo codes is full of options and it’s easy to allow many different options for purchasing tickets. From expiring ticket types to tracking promo codes, you can allow people to buy tickets with unlimited options (early bird, sponsor discounts, etc.)

  • It has a lot of functionalities (website and administration) all included in the same platform. If it worked properly, it allows you to organise a conference paper-free.
  • Help desk responds quite quickly
  • They consider making improvements when asked for.
  • It’s not too expensive.

Cons

Bizzabo

  • I am hoping that one day there will be a way to stream whilst also having webcams for audience members simultaneously (i.e., a blend of the interact and stream options). The blending of these two options would really take it to the next level for us.

  • Multilingual issues. Although it is advertised as multilingual, it didn’t really work as such. The many issues that popped up throughout the conference preparation were fixed little by little at a cost in time, from help desk emails and to struggles with the unfriendly UX.
  • Admin pages reloaded every time you clicked on a button (their developers seem to ignore Ajax technologies). It was time-consuming and required constant page searches.
  • Inflexibility in many of the supposed functionalities it offers.
  • Certificates were not modifiable nor custom when we had to send them (it was solved months after the conference finished when we were surprisingly contacted by the help desk).
  • Problems with the size of images to be displayed on the site, very small fonts and limited options to display content. We had to hire a professional developer in order to get a graphically consistent and presentable website.
  • Very poor mobile version. Too big margins, unreadable text, endless text blocks and lists, distorted pictures, etc.
  • Issues with the ordering of the authors’ names for different proposals (authorship being so important in research).
  • Fixed, inflexible fields in the contact sheets, speakers info, and so on.
  • Special character issues (due to Latin characters and other types used in linguistic research).
  • Not being able to include links in the HTML editor due to Dryfta's inadvertent decisions to block them.
  • Only one Superadmin user allowed to access the full functionalities of the platform, so we had to share it (consequently not knowing who did each action).
  • Problems with the generation of reports and the high complexity of their interface.
  • Some issues on the mandatory anonymity. The double-blind review process not fully respected due to unclear user info and options, with other issues coming up on the go such as unwanted info in automated notifications and messages in the Welcome dashboard.
  • Not being able to use the other payment methods on the platform because they were incompatible with the conference country.
  • Missing information and time wasted when creating events for sessions with info that already existed in the server that randomly failed to be selected. These issues were reported even with video proofs (help desk didn’t believe us), and were never solved. We had to repeat the same processes again and again, never knowing what was going on

      It was quick, that's all we can say. Quite a few times they sorted out the problems and issues. But, sadly, sometimes their answers were useless and irritating (not addressing the problem or simply ignoring it, "passing the buck"). In some cases, they pretended the problem didn't exist and we had to send them videos as proof. No response to that.

      Alternatives Considered

      Bizzabo

      Our team looked at other potential solutions to our virtual shows but ultimately ended on Bizzabo. The security that Bizzabo offers with its customer support team and reliable platform drew us to them. The features provided have allowed us to put on great shows for our clients. They are also actively updating the software keeping it fresh.

      Return on Investment

      Bizzabo

      • Since we have only used Bizzabo for a year we are still learning and figuring out the nuances of it but I would say that one thing it has done is impressed our current clients which makes them want to continue to work with us.
      • We hope to use Bizzabo as a tool to recruit more clients i the future
      • It has cut a third party out of the system as we have our own dedicated platform to use and do not have to rely on a separate agency to use a different platform.

      • The overall performance was okay in the end, but it was due to our team's commitment and effort. Without that extra work, the results would have been awful.
