If you are an organization who is hosting a ticketed event such as a concert, a block party, a 5k fun run, or anything that may require a pre event registration / ticket purchase, this product could potentially be very useful for you! My Fraternity used Eventzilla's product for our last four events including a concert, a 5k run, and 2 golfing tournaments! Using this tool, we were able to raise significantly more money than we had from previous events. Additionally, this product was exceptionally useful for the 5k because of the amount of information we needed to collect through the registration form prior to the event. Using the Eventzilla forms, we were able to discover participants' age, gender, t -shirt size, # of registrations, phone #, email, name, etc. and provide them each with an excellent, personalized experience.

WebEx Events is a great tool for hosting both an event website and an onsite event app. If you are looking to integrate an on onsite and online event, they have this capability, as well. The staff is always very helpful and I am able to get answers to my questions in a timely manner
Read full review Pros Managing registration and attendees. Creating landing pages, registration pages and promoting them. Automates waitlisting and approvals. Live streaming and polling. Internal in-built payment processor. Read full review It has quite a few optional and customizable features that can be utilized. It's easy to integrate your existing tools like Zoom, YouTube, Vimeo, and streaming services. It's flexible in the way that you upload content in that you can enter things one at a time on the website, or use a spreadsheet to upload a larger amount of content. Read full review Cons Customization features for emails could be improved since most are automated reminders. Sometimes too difficult to create a simple event with loads of choices available. Many times we simply want to create a normal event without much hassle. Read full review Sometimes I feel like it uses too many resources and makes my computer go slower Chats of the webinar dissappear by default, but sometimes important info is shared and could be nice to have the option to save it The quality of the video gets chosen by webex by default, sometimes maybe it would be nice to get the option to fix manually what's the minimum quality you want. Just to not talk with pixels Read full review Usability
As, stated before, the only thing that I found to be difficult when using this software was pointing an existing domain to the Eventzilla Registration landing page. I followed all of the steps as illustrated and I continued to experience errors when trying to navigate via the domain. I could not get in contact with support and so we chose to use the extremely long Eventzilla domain. This was not a big deal, but it would have been nice to use our own domain that we purchased

Support is adequate, but sometimes has difficulty grasping all of the pieces of a question. Once, I asked for help with a relatively technical integration that we were using to track event effectiveness, and their answer left me wondering if they even understood that the feature I was asking about even existed in their system.

Eventzilla is a budget-friendly tool and has a very dynamic pricing model. You only pay for the features you use.

We have used multiple virtual event platforms in the past, as well as trialed several. We ultimately decided on Webex due to the aesthetics of the website, the incredibly easy build-out process, the 24/5 support, the user-friendly front-end interface, the multiple ways to monetize sponsorships, and ultimately... the price. The value for what you get is incredible compared to other platforms.
Read full review Return on Investment We use it for internal events, so mostly our ownemployees join the events. These are usually fun events, so ROI is not expected. Most of the times, we are simply organizing recreational events for our employees, so it boosts the morale of the participants to have a proper organized setup for the events they attend. Read full review WIthout socio, I am not sure we could have put on a successful virtual event the past two years. Their tool and level of customer service literary kept our business alive. We heard from multiple attendees that are simply sick and tired of coming to virtual events, however, that socio was the best platform they had used and set us apart from other virtual events they had joined. In a post event survey, 2/3 of our attendees rated the socio platform 4 or 5 stars (out of 5). Read full review ScreenShots
