6 undeniable benefits of using an event app (for elevated event experiences)

Samantha Gennet

It has become clear that having a successful event in the post-pandemic environment depends on high-functioning and accessible apps.

Hosting an event with hundreds, possibly thousands, of attendees is no small feat.

You need fast and simple solutions to tackle your event difficulties.

Discover six reasons why using event technology has become so vital, what problems you may face, and how the event app Ventla is your ultimate solution.

 

Stay on time (even with last minute changes)

Event technology is hugely beneficial for ensuring everything happens when it's supposed to happen; before, during, and after your event.

Events are organized, carried through, and entirely dependent on time. To ensure that every deadline and session is punctual, you need a space to keep track of each step.

Ventla offers administrators and attendees alike a comprehensive view of the schedule.

Having a place where everyone can view the most up-to-date version of the schedule at any time can give you peace of mind knowing that everything is running at the rate it should.

Even with last-minute changes, Ventla is a fast way to update everyone on the changes in real-time.

 

Make it easy-to-learn and easy-to-use

Audiences are sometimes off-put by using new technology during events. Trusting an event platform with the entire program schedule can be intimidating.

And as an event planner, learning an all-new system is the last thing you need to worry about.

That's why you want reliability, guaranteed support, and ease of use in your chosen platform.

Clients and users have praised Ventla for its readily available and intuitive software.

Administrators can easily navigate the app, while attendees find the app incredibly functional and straightforward.

Ventla also offers dedicated support and training throughout the event planning process, meaning you are never alone when you get stuck.

 

Keep your attendees safe and secure

It is extremely important to have a secure system that you can trust.

When sharing attendee information and exclusive content during your event, you must ensure access is limited to your intended audience only.

Ventla guarantees a private and protected virtual space for you and your attendees to roam freely without any security concerns.

All embedded live streams and videos are safely hosted within the app and can be accessed on any mobile device or web server.

You can protect your event further by using private event codes or limiting it to invite-only access.

 

Encourage an active and engaged audience

Attendee engagement is the core of an event; it's the main factor determining an exceptional event over an unmemorable one.

With event technology, it's never been easier to keep your attendees engaged and excited throughout your event.

Leveraging Ventla's activity feed, polling, surveys, and session Q&A can help you captivate and hold your audience’s attention.

And with push notifications, your audience will never miss an opportunity to interact.

 

Save money and the environment

Leveraging an event app not only helps event planners save money but also helps save the environment.

With a near-total reduction of paper by housing all your event’s content in an app, you are saving yourself tens of thousands of dollars in printing.

And if that doesn't convince you, consider your event's carbon footprint that you are greatly reducing without needing paper.

 

Bridge your virtual and in-person audiences

The dynamic of events has shifted since the pandemic.

Whether you’re dealing with a virtual, hybrid, or in-person event setting, you can rest easy knowing that Ventla can seamlessly connect the different parts of your audience.

Ventla allows attendees to direct message one another, creating a large potential networking web for them - whether they are attending in real life or virtually.

During sessions, you can utilize the app's live polling and Q&A features to ensure your virtual and in-person attendees are still a part of the conversation.

Centering all communication around the app will unify both sides of your audience and guarantee everyone is on the same page.

 

Summary

Event technology will separate and heighten your event from past events.

The pandemic played a role in why event apps are now more important than ever. They are the force that drives your event's atmosphere, timeliness, and motivation as virtual and in-person attendees unifies.

An event app accomplishes all the technical details and promises high attendee engagement.

Checking all this off your list, you can focus on the other creative and finer-tuned aspects of event planning.
