About Shindig

Shindig is a cloud-based virtual event management solution, which helps businesses host, monetize and record events to communicate, collaborate and connect with audiences on a unified platform. It provides virtual green rooms for organizers to privately screen participants before broadcasting them on stage.

ShinDig is uniquely dynamic among other event platforms

We're producing panels, workshops, and award shows that allow people to see each other in the room, the way they would at an in-person event. Interaction between attendees can be real live video chatting, not just text chatting. The rotating CTA widget is also great, because it allows us to provide our sponsors some additional real estate / web traffic.

Pros

Shindig has great customer service, and a responsive development team. Interaction between event attendees is more dynamic and flexible than other platforms. Customization and uploading backgrounds in the event rooms gives you the opportunity for fabulous aesthetics, and makes people really feel like they're "in the room," plus provides you plenty of branding opportunities. Being able to upload heavy video files and play them flawlessly is a great feature. And capturing recordings in full screen makes it like zoom, but way better. 6 podiums on the stage covers our needs. Shindig helps our events shine!

Cons

The wysiwyg editor for the event landing page is a little clunky and out of date, but you can work around it. We have used eventbrite for our ticketing, because shindig doesn't yet have complex registration options built in, such as multiple custom discount codes.

Reasons for Switching to Shindig

We wanted more control over the aesthetics, to allow our event to feel like a festival, and we wanted our events to feel more dynamic and interactive for the people in the room.

Closest to in-person virtual event as possible.

Shindig allowed us to host an virtual conference (postponed in-person conference) that provided participants with a unique, engaging and informal experience. They did not experience death by PowerPoint/lecture.

Pros

I like how Shindig allows for attendees to network with other attendees - video and text - without any involvement by the organizer.

Cons

I wish there was a way to have participants fully understand right away how to get the most out of their Shindig experience.

'a virtual experience as memorable as any in-person event'

Shindig allowed us to switch our Homecoming event to a virtual one seamlessly, while also allowing our global alumni community to join the experience.

Pros

Shindig allowed our alumni to catch-up with each-other in actual private conversations, yet still be apart of a bigger audience, and ask live questions, by video, to our keynote speakers.

Cons

The learning curb of how to best get the full shindig experience was challenging for some.
