💰  Event eCommerce Marketplace, Beta is Live!
eCommerce Example

Our company is on a mission to help event planners become event strategists. Part of that means helping planners re-innovate their business models because events are changing - fast. From speakers and attendees to exhibitors and sponsors, everyone's becoming more selective with their time and funds. We have to start thinking beyond event apps and registration platforms, the time is now.

Events are going to need more data, new revenue channels, better automation, and integrated technology solutions to succeed. Today, we want to focus on something we've been working very hard on, and that's bringing eCommerce to the world of events.

Today, we've officially launched PheedLoop's beta program for its eCommerce toolset. These tools enable attendees to make mobile purchases from the event (merch and swag, anyone?), or from online stores your exhibitors, speakers, and sponsors can set up in their portals. If you organize trade or consumer shows, this feature will be a game changer, and overnight will turn your 2-day event into a year-long opportunity to sell, promote, and profit. It'll also draw more attendees to your event, they'll want to attend in-person to grab their gear!

We are absolutely thrilled and excited about the new opportunities this is going to open up. Click the button below to join our beta program.

  Matchmaker Mode for Attendee Meetings
Matchmaking Picture

We're always so thrilled and excited to see events making use of our meeting/B2B system! We love seeing attendees connect with each other not only at events but before and after them too.

Now, event planners have a lot more control over the meeting process! We just launched the ability for planners to turn on "Matchmaking Mode". This mode allows attendees to "poke" each other and share their intent to meet another attendee only with the event planner. The event planner can then schedule the meeting themselves, and carefully curate meeting experiences for their events.

This is a great tool for small, professional events where a highly curated attendee experience is critical.

🎟️  Pre-Programming Your Tickets
Thanks to an amazing request from one of our favorite events, we recently added the functionality which allows forward-thinking event planners to pre-program their ticket sales!

With new start and end time settings, you can plan all your tickets, from early-bird to member-only options months in advance. It's simply set and forget after that point, and you can watch your tickets come online and offline automatically at exactly the right moment.

Thank you to all our customers who keep sharing amazing ideas with us!

  Manage Your Automated Tasks Better

Our team has been taken by storm over the last few months by the interest and excitement around PheedLoop's task automation and management features for exhibitors, sponsors, and speakers. Organizing events at scale with small teams is the future of event planning, and automation is the key to unlocking that future.

Now you can better track which exhibitors, sponsors, and speakers have been assigned certain tasks, how often they've been reminded, and send bulk manual reminders. You can even export task completion data.

Over the next few weeks, you can expect countless new features to come out to the task automation system. From in-email task completion to velocity trackers, and more!
