Event Management Platforms Overview
What are Event Management Platforms?
Event Management Platforms provide tools to plan, market, and manage the attendees of events. While similar to Event Registration Software (also commonly having a registration web interface), Event Management Platforms emphasize marketing, revenue, or lead generation. That is, they address the motive for holding the event.
So event management software provides features to engage attendees before and during events (e.g. digital signage, ads), and then also collect leads or gather data (e.g. surveys and forms). Some Event Management Platforms are highly industry or type specific. For example, they may specialize in golf tournaments or other sporting events, equestrian events, or trade shows.
Features of Event Management Platforms:
Event management platforms contain the following feature sets depending on the type of events the vendor specializes in, these including:
Event promotion & marketing
Social media promotion, event reminders
RSVP, attendee registration web interface
Attendee room booking & itinerary management
RFP / eRFP venue management and bid management
Event workforce management, scheduling, permissions
Attendance tracking, ticketing & badge management
Call for papers, abstract, agenda management (academic conference)
Sponsor and exhibitor management
Speaker bio and presentation management
Peer attendee meeting and interview scheduling
Social engagement, social wall, digital signage
Mobile app for registration, engagement, or survey response
Light event management solutions can be cobbled together with free tools. However, for robust integrated feature sets Event Management Platforms are delivered via a software-as-a-service and purchased on a monthly or annual subscription. If the event management platform is oriented around event promotion, then pricing most usually scales with number of sites and feeds where promotional posts appear, as well as number of posts issued. If the platform is oriented around surveys or lead capture, then pricing concords with number of respondents or responses scanned, and complexity of data required.
Many Event Management Platform are designed to support complex or highly specific event-types (e.g. trade shows, academic conferences, etc.). In this case, pricing is based on feature breadth and specificity, and also industry type. Complex platforms tend to be modular; you buy the features you need. Also, some vendors supply live support or personnel along with software. Some vendors also provide kiosks, ID readers, displays, and digital signage, for purchase or rent.
