    Our experience with Bizzabo was great. Liat gave me constant support and was very patient in walking me through every feature. We really liked the new calendar that unfortunately was released only a week prior to our event. I had never created a website before and I found this fairly easy to manage. All the figures on the tickets were helpful to break down the ticket revenue for our personal budget.

    Pros

    The software was quite straight forward even for beginners, and if something was unclear Bizzabo support would always find a way to explain or solve problems. It matched all our needs in terms of keeping track of tickets, changing them, adding some parts of the website at a very late stage, sending push notifications through the app etc.

    Cons

    I felt like you couldn't play too much in terms of the size of the new tabs, inserting more pictures..making it more fun rather than quite fixed

    Pros

    - easy handling, customer-friendly platform
    - website editor & mobile app
    - quick and high-level assistance of customer support
    - what is important in organizing and executing a successful event (setting up an event website, communication with potential attendees, building a community, managing registration, etc) are easy to accomplish and require less efforts from human resources thanks to this amazing software/tool/platform
    - continuous improvement of its features

    Cons

    Obviously, there are some limitations in the customization of some elements, as in most of the softwares/tools. However, I have a very good experience with the customer support at Bizzabo, as in such cases they offered some alternative ways to find a solution to my problem/issue, etc. They have never left me alone with unsolved issues, and I really appreciate their quick and high-level support and assistance.

    Huge time saver and therefore a money saver - the tedious tasks that one would have to deal with on other website platforms are no longer a problem and one can really focus on generating revenue.

    Pros

    The back end is extremely easy to use and well automated. It has saved me so much time to focus on other marketing tasks. The front end has some great design options that are perfect for our events. The support team is always very helpful.

    Cons

    There are some limitations due to us being a South African run company like only having one currency per site available however they have been very helpful in making this work for us and coming up with solutions that work. Any limitations that we have had were addressed and are no longer a problem.

    Before we used our own main website, which was really hard on time management as every change we had to do was through our development team (even when it came to changing a full stop). Now we have full control over the website, design, registration etc.. The support team are fantastic when you have any problem big or small. Really useful when you are on a deadline.

    Pros

    How user friendly it is, everything is simple yet complex enough to do all the functions you need it to.

    Cons

    If you are not experienced in CSS there are only a few templates to choose from.

    Pros

    I like the features. It's more for large conferences rather than medium or small. Which is probably the reason for the high pricetag.

    Cons

    I put up with pushy cold call/telemarketer calls for almost 2 years from this company. Each time they would call I let them know the timeframe that I look at implementing any changes for our event department. I would give them a date to call me back to discuss. Not one time did they ever listen. Then when I finally wanted to consider implementing the software in our business, I was told that there was nothing available for less than a month. Are you kidding me? I didn't need half of the features that the girl was pushing. She promptly told me that if anything changed with our budget that I should give her a call back. Lol
    Bizzaboo CEO....stop recruiting used car saleswomen to push event software. I dont have the time or the patience to retrain them ever time they call me.

    Bizzabo is a great event management/marketing tool for organizations which would like to benefit from a comprehensive package solution, including an event website and app. Their customer support is great and helpful. What I truly appreciate is that Bizzabo constantly seeks to improve their product - for us the only functionality missing at this point is the option to schedule one on one meetings for attendees via the app, but this seems to be in the pipeline for the near future.

    Pros

    + Event packages include website and mobile app
    + Integration options with existing tools such as MailChimp
    + Great and responsive customer support
    + Easy to set up ticketing and payment systems
    + Constant development and improvement

    Cons

    - Missing functionality to schedule 1 on 1 meetings (but Bizzabo seems to work on it)
    - Polling functionality didn't work as smoothly as expected

    Sometimes they let their IT people design the system. But they are not congress organizers

    1. Easy to use - Bizzabo includes many useful features that simplify the usage for the event organizer.

    I have organized probably over 10 conferences with Bizzabo, it was great when I started with it, and ever improving since.

    Pros

    The UI is very intuitive, very fast and responsive. It allows managing multiple aspects of your event, including ticketing, website (i.e. speakers, sponsors, agenda) - adding a speaker is a snap since it takes most data from the speaker's LinkedIn profile. You can either use your own website, or integrate widgets in your own site (which I do).
    Everything is also reflected in an app which your attendees can use. Also attendees can network before and after the event using the app or the web interface.

    Cons

    I would like it also to have some sort of a 1x1 meetings scheduling system, hopefully that feature is in the pipeline since they already have all attendees data.

    It's a nice tool and made us rethink how we manage events.

    Pros

    It was nice that all aspects of a successful event were all in one place--on the command center. Which allows for registration, marketing and management all in one interface.

    Cons

    The cost. Especially when coming from EventBrite. And the package only allowed 3 events per year which we would need to upgrade for more than that.

    That a software gives you the opportunity to do a free trial is excellent. I like that it's an original product.

    There are things that disappointed me for example that is a slow software, and the installation takes quite a bit. But the things that allow you to do this software are great.

    Do not waste your time with this website. We used Bizzabo for an event and every email that we sent was flagged in 75% of our recipients inboxes because of Bizzabo's URL for the event website. There were so many bounces and unsubscribes!

    Lots of time saved when able to market and administer your tickets one place.

    Pros

    We all know that it's not enough to sell tickets; you need to market event. With Bizzabo you can do all in one, which saves you lots of time and efforts.

    Cons

    Bizzabo is amazing, but why not offer even more features? An Event Planner needs lots of features that I'm sure Bizzabo could offer as well.

    Pros

    The easy to use solution suite to organize an event (from website to ticketing): it is very user friendly and has the features you need to market efficiently the event (website, newsletter, email, contact database) and to manage it (registration, ticketing).
    The networking platform was a great feature: People could see who was attending, started conversations before the event and scheduled their meeting. A lot of the interactions that happened onsite was prepped by the software solution.
    Finally customer support was excellent.

    Cons

    We had an issue with displaying the pictures and the bio of the participants but it was resolved by the customer support team.
    We also had an issue with our message coming out of the Bizzabo being identified as spam by some of our recipients.

    Ease of use and modern design. I also like that it provides multiple templates to fit the mood/theme of your event. The most priceless feature...is the customer service and help/tutorial owl.

    Cons

    It doesn't offer intuitive registration (question) build-out and that's sorely needed in my organization. Also, I'd like to see a feature that allowed for isolated confirmation and group registration (ie, if a group is registering I need to know the names, dietary needs, media release, etc for each person but they should all be tied to the purchaser/one record)
