Bizzabo is well suited for marketing and event teams that don't have a dedicated web developer to build event sites. The platform is intuitive and easy - it allows my entire team to build and edit our events sites. It also allows us to keep our entire event program hosted on one platform (webinars, virtual, hybrid, and live events).
Read full review Pros 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.) Read full review Cons Integration with Teams / Teams Webinar.

Bizzabo is extremely user friendly. The website builder is very simple to use and can creative some astounding looking websites, with no technical know how. The setup of the account, adding users, managing events and user access to events, as well as creating events from scratch or from existing "templates" (actually just standard events that we set a far off date from and copy as a template) is very simple, but powerful as you can pick and choose exactly what to copy over. It is also a very user friendly platform for the attendees and speakers (both for virtual events and physical events for speakers as the speaker, and partner, portal is very simple to use and can be custom created for the exact specifications you need).

Support is always quick to respond. However, some issues are out of their hand, and in these cases, it is a laborious process to then submit a suggestion for how to improve the product. However, where they can rectify an issue, support has gone above and beyond to deliver and do so efficiently and in a friendly manner.

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.

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.
