Provides everything you might need when organizing an event for a large group - agenda, notifications, etc. Fantastic service - very professional and kind personnel! Great web editor.

Cons

I've been told that the mobile app is currently undergoing a major revamp, so you'll probably have a better experience with it, but overall it's also good.

Pros

YWCA Canberra started using Bizzabo in 2016, after two years of trying to coordinate our She Leads Conference using our own website. Not only was Bizzabo willing to accommodate our needs as a charity organisation, but the streamlined event management system made everything so much easier, from creating a beautiful website for the event to registration, tracking revenue, and coordinating dietary and attendee details. Since using Bizzabo, the Conference has seen an increase in overall ticket sales, and has been able to increase its reputation as a premier women¿s leadership event in the ACT!

Cons

Nothing in particular - the tax invoicing, with it being a US platform can be tricky for us in Australia, but we've managed to work around this.

We had switched over from a different event management system because it was far too much work to learn & really help our event thrive. We love Bizzabo because of its ease of use, functionality, & customization. It's so ease to use that it's given us a team member back since we haven't had to dedicate one person to learning a new software. It's been great & we absolutely love it!

I've known about Bizzabo for awhile but didn't purchase the platform until the third year of Culture Summit because I wasn't sure if the price was justified. Bizzabo has made organizing Culture Summit 100% easier and I regret not buying it from day one. Bizzabo solves three key areas for me: helping me stay organized, helping me sell tickets, and helping my community engage with each other. Their support team is also best in class! A must have a platform for any event organizer.

We couldn¿t organize our event without Bizzabo! This easy-to-use platform enabled us to build the event¿s website, including ticketing. Mostly, thanks to Bizzabo, participants were able to communicate and engage before, during and even after the event. Further, the costumer service is OUTSTANDING! Bizzabo team responded promptly and effectively and we were able to provide the best service/ answers to our participants thanks to Bizzabo team! We highly recommend any business to use Bizzabo!

Bizzabo has been an easy platform to use and adopt in our organization. We are currently using it for registration for a 500 person gala and a 1,000 person conference. Their customer service is excellent, and I have always been able to get in contact with someone immediately to answer questions and help with problems I have faced.

Pros

The customer services is excellent and setting up customized event registration sites is extremely easy. They were willing to work with us to create features that we needed for our events that they did offer before we were using the platform. They really care about meeting the needs and goals of our organization.

Cons

Bizzabo is a good platform for event registration, but if you are looking for a more all-encompassing platform with auction features, seating features, etc. I would consider using something else.

Advice to Others

As I mentioned above, the software is limited to event registration, so if you are looking for other features such as auction or seating features, I would recommend a different platform.

As a budget conscious non-profit we are always on the look for different options. Working Bizzabo I never felt like the small customer who could be ignored, they listened, helped understand our events and we jumped in. Super glad we did. Bizzabo is a third of the price of our previous software and doesn't feel like I am missing out on too much for that reduction. I am a fan for sure :)

Pros

Very easy to configure, excellent tutorials and support available. Extremely competitive pricing. Modern website templating to create out of the box websites, with easy personalization. Love the customer input they seek for feature improvement.

Cons

Lacking some features of other event management software, but they are working hard on feature improvement and additions. Needs more work on the ticket option and different scenarios faced in B2B conference land.

Advice to Others

Definately worth taking a look at Bizzabo when you evaluate event management software.

Bizzabo is an exceptional all inclusive platform for events. The software was easy to use and not as cumbersome/involved compared to other platforms. One area where Bizzabo could improve on is their 'virtual check-in' since it is very basic in usage (compared to CVENT's On-arrival). It would be great if we can see some updates and allow attendees the option to check-in via Kiosk mode (or self check-in) and record signatures. Other than that, this is one system that I would recommend to my colleagues and I am glad to see how much technology has changed the work that we do in events. Kudos to the team at Bizzabo for filling this gap in the marketplace and I am looking forward to new and exciting offerings/solutions from the product team in the near future!

We ran our last event with Bizzabo's Engagement app and we had great results.

Despite coming onboard only a month before our event which meant we had a tight time frame to set it up, it was an easy and quick process. I really like the simplicity and ease that Bizzabo provides together with the attractive look and feel. Delegates were thrilled with the app as they found it highly useful and interactive.

We are excited to collaborate with Bizzabo for our next Digital Insurance Agenda event and will also consider using their Ticketing Platform for our Delegates Registration.

Bizzabo is a great tool to take control of events. It brings in all the necessary systems to one central dashboard - and yet allows you to integrate with specialist software like MailChimp and SalesForce seamlessly.

Though, this is not Bizzabo's greatest asset. The team that work at this company are so pro-active you can't work out how they can possibly have the time they do for you.

I have worked with a lot of software companies, and they all say they provide real support - but these guys deliver.

Give them a go, and see for yourself.

We used Bizzabo over the course of 9 months to plan an enormous event last month. Our target was 2000 attendees, we ended up with 3000 registrations from around the world!
We must have used nearly every single feature Bizzabo offers - it is a very deep product, so no matter what size or scale the event, it has something to offer.
I can't think of a better way to have managed our event. We run dozens of events throughout the year, and Bizzabo offers a much better product and path to planning and execution than anything we've experienced.
After surveying our internal team about the event planning process, we received a lot of positive feedback - from the CRM functionality to the website and promotion tools.
Thank you!

Bizzabo has been a huge upgrade for our ticketing needs. The landing pages have a great look and feel with easy backend editing and tracking capabilities. The easy embed code to put the ticketing widget in our website is crucial for increasing sales.

The Bizzabo customer service team is incredibly responsive, helpful and makes my team feel well taken care of for any issues we come across. I could write a full page of praise about how the Bizzabo product and team have improved our brand presence, event promotion and sales capabilities.

If you're using any other ticketing system for your events you're missing out on a valuable tool that can majorly level up your business.

So far a unique platform. We wanted to integrate our CRM, Marketing emails, websites, ticketing and get a event app. Bizzabo ticked all of the boxes in theory.

However having used some of the features such as CRM and Marketing, think its more appropriate that they do not use the term " CRM " as its a contact database only. There are no CRM functions.
The real downside to this is the marketing emails element- you can send emails and upload lists but you cannot export or see who is opening/clicking or unsubscribing. Any event organiser requires this - it is a core need and makes you wonder if they really understand their customers market.

If you need a website and ticketing and a App, they seem good at this. They are also good at developing new elements for you on the spot - which is incredibly helpful but also makes you feel like the offering isnt quite finished and their clients are a testing bed to identify and create features that should have been there in the first place.

We would like to see this work and support innovation. None the less without facilitating the core needs of a organiser from a marketing and CRM side, the price tag is unjustifiable and the advertising misleading until those features are fully implemented.

Bizzabo is the Best Way Manage the Entire Value Chain for Your Ticket Holder in One Place

Ease-of-use

Managing ticket sales was a pain a few years ago when eventbrite etc. popped up. Today's that's not the pain. Today's pain is understanding the entire value chain of your ticket holder and driving ticket sales. Bizzabo helps you manage the entire customer relationship from the the time they hit the website (Bizzabo) to buying a ticket (Bizzabo) to retargeting (Bizzabo) to continuous engagement before, during and after the event (Bizzabo app and crm). Their customer service is second to none - the email retargeting alone quadrupled conversions. And there is no other ticketing provider on the market that enables you to manage the entire value chain for the ticket holder.

While we are tech savvy event organizers, 80% of the market isn't. Using a product for web management, a product for email and crm, a product for retargeting, a product for ticket sales etc. and tying them all together is a COLOSSAL PAIN. Bizzabo brings it all together in one place.

End of the day If you don't understand the customer from the time they hit your site, you can't maximize value to them as well as maximize ticket sales.
