Overall Satisfaction with Whova
Whova is now a three-year active part of our Spring meeting of a (metal building) industry association. We introduced Whova to our members in 2020 to aid our need to go virtual, but without losing the critical interactivity of a face-to-face trade show/meeting. With 2022 being an in-person event, we carried the Whova app forward to enhance the experience, and it worked! The app interaction offered many solutions; car-pooling from the airport, like-minded groups (cigar and bonfires) meeting in the off hours, proposed questions for the "subject matter expert panel" session, etc. One problem that did arise is the excessive emails/notifications. Both to our work email addresses, and more within the app. We don't need an influx of emails or notifications for every action in the app. At one point I had over 300 notifications in the "community" section. Would be happy to have a functionality to choose which categories to be notified of additions/changes.
- Ability to create, staff, and interact with a "virtual" Trade Show Booth, including gathering leads/prospects
- Create respective chat groups for industry topics
- Allow for multi level sponsorship branding, and metrics reporting
- Generating an EXCEL report of all scanned prospects for follow-ups. Makes for easy dissemination to the respective sales team member for follow-up and opportunity close.
- As mentioned; would like the ability to choose which activity notifications I respectively receive.
- Would like to see the identifications of those categorized simply as "visits." In a live trade show, we step out of the booth space and interact with every person walking by. A listing of "54 visits" does not help in my marketing/sales strategy.
- Simple gather, sort, and disseminate leads/prospects scanned
- enhances interactivity of in-person meetings
I will rate it as a 10, as my use/leverage of the Whova app did not require me to contact the support team.
Whova follows a fairly direct intuitive path. The key to implementation is; to do it. then play with it. then use it. and repeat

Whova played, and delivered, excellence as a virtual tool, and then elevated the in-person interactivity. Well Suited - interactivity between attendees. It is a simple, barrier-reduced path to connect/communicate with any and all attendees. Less Appropriate - the interactivity with the trade show portion attendees. As mentioned earlier, a listing of "54 visits" and no visibility to them is not helpful.
