Event ticketing platform:
Event ticketing software is a fundamental platform where event organizers can sell tickets online. This platform allows the creation of a ticketing site for an event and the sale of different types of tickets (standard or VIP). The software includes basic social media and email marketing integrations, as well as analytics tools to track sales.
All-in-one platform for face-to-face, virtual, and hybrid events:
All-in-one event management software provides everything an event planner needs to manage hybrid, virtual, and live events, including registration, marketing, networking, sponsorship, and all analyses. The software is fully customizable and flexible to the wants and needs of event planners, with CSS, integration, and API connectivity. A robust all-in-one platform might have a learning curve for new users, making customer service crucial.
Out-of-the-box platforms are for ordinary live events that require no customization and offer powerful additional features. While advertised as ready-to-use, this software is usually the hardest to learn, and users often report taking time to understand the platform before using it.
Network platforms are ideal for connecting attendees at hybrid, virtual, or live events. They were specifically developed to connect attendees and are not a full-scale event management system but rather designed as an add-on to event marketing software. This platform is best used when integrated with more comprehensive large-scale event management software for more robust networking capabilities.
The app-based platform serves as a support tool for event attendees. While not as powerful as web platforms, it is an important integration for web platforms in live and hybrid events. The app-based software includes event-related engagement, networking, and analytics tools. It wasn't designed for streaming and watching shows but has been used for surveys and gamification at events, as well as things like online maps and schedules.
