An app: the best way to present your event

Discover a multitude of formats to present your concept, your events, or the amenities around you

Whether you run a venue or organize temporary events, presenting yourself is crucial to attracting an audience to your events. Choosing an app is to offer you the possibility to tell more about yourself, in the form of articles, photos, videos or even sounds! Use our CMS to create the content you need to introduce yourself, the people involved in your events, the amenities around you, or talk about your past events. Your future visitors will be more inclined to attend your future events if they know a little more about you, your approach and your values

Present your program clearly and facilitate the attendance

Offer your visitors all the best features to view your events and get to them

A clear event list

Thanks to the Calendar section, you can present your program as clearly as possible. Your events are sorted by date and several options are available to best fit your schedule: The Calendar section design allows you to display several events on the same day, and display of events happening on the same day with a mention of Now or the starting time for example. Thanks to these features you can manage events that take place on several days or on a single day.

Several event presentation templates

You can choose from 3 templates for the detail view of your events. You can of course add more or less long descriptions, photos, videos or even embed code to describe and promote each event in your program.

Event geolocation

It is essential that your audience can easily find their way to your shows, conferences or other workshops. That's why each event can be geolocated. Your users can see the location of each session, which can be particularly useful for a festival or a trade show that takes place in huge venues or in different locations. The list of geolocated events can also be displayed on a map to give a global view to your audience.

Itineraries and ticket sales

On your event details page, you can add a buy ticket button that will redirect your users to your ticketing service. Contact buttons and directions to your event are also available to your users. Everything they need to get to your event is on this page.

Bring life to your event

Encourage interaction and create a buzz around your event

List and categorize your users

Display in your app the list of your attendees, your speakers, your artists, your exhibitors... No matter what kind of events you organize, allowing your attendees to create a profile and view the profiles of others will only increase the engagement around your event. User groups will allow you to clarify your user list and provide specific content and communication for each type of user.

Chat

What better way to encourage interaction than with a chat tool? In the context of a trade show or conference, chat is particularly useful to encourage networking and allow your audience to get the most out of your event.

Broadcast your event live in your app

Live features to go beyond the physical and reach a maximum number of people

Stream your event live on your app as video or audio with our advanced features. Offer your audience to follow your conferences, concerts, performances, game sessions... directly on their mobile from a great player. You can use the scheduling feature to give access to your live sessions only at the right time. The rest of the time, you can promote your upcoming live sessions.

Create your own ads

Use them to promote your partners

Integrate an internal ad network into your app to create your own personalized ads. Launch screens or banners, use the advertising spaces of your app to highlight your partners who sponsor your event. GoodBarber's internal ad network allows you to create customized campaigns according to several criteria: show dates, priorities, number of clicks, platforms, etc. In addition to being a major negotiation element with your partners and sponsors, the ads can be used to promote your upcoming events (next concerts in your venue, next conference in your trade show for example).

Manage the hazards of going live

Be responsive in all circumstances and keep your audience engaged

Push notifications

Push notifications are your best ally to communicate instantly with your audience. Use notifications to inform your audience of possible changes or to promote your events. Depending on your needs, you can target the recipients of your notifications according to your audience's behavior (frequency of use of your app, new users), or even their geographical location, which can be particularly useful if you only want to contact your users on site.

Instant content update

A change in your program? No worries, your app content can be created or updated in a few clicks from your GoodBarber back office. Once you publish your changes or new content, it will be instantly displayed in your app.

Submission Section

If you want to give your audience the opportunity to interact with you, you should add a Submission section to your app. It will allow your audience to send you different types of content: photos, videos and texts. In one click their message is sent, which can be useful in many situations! This user-generated content will not be automatically published in the app, you will have to publish it manually from the backoffice, so you can keep an eye on the content sent and decide what you want to display or not in your app. Discover this extension and its main features.

Stay in touch with your audience

Benefit from your event after it closes

Make the most of the attendee list

During your event, your visitors have created their user profile and filled in the information you asked them for. Once your event is over, think about exporting your user list (available in .csv format) in order to use it: offer discount coupons for your next events, targeted communication around specific interests. The user list allows you to create a database around your audience that can be very relevant: you decide what information you will ask your audience when creating their profile, and therefore the information present in the export of the user list.

Collect feedback

Your app can also be a great way to collect feedback from your participants in order to improve and make your events even more attractive. Use 100% customizable forms to collect this valuable information: 16 types of fields are available to meet all your needs. Once your forms are distributed and your answers collected, you can export them in .csv format to process them in bulk. A representative survey of your audience is the best way to improve.

Share your memories of the event

To keep your event engaged and make your audience want to come back, or talk about it, use our CMS sections to publish your event recap or memories. Photos, videos, articles or even podcasts, choose the formats that suit you best.

Why is an app useful for events?

Hybrid events: the new trend

Since the pandemic, event organizers have had to reinvent themselves. If 100% digital events don't meet all needs, a hybrid half-digital, half-physical event seems to be the perfect solution today. It combines the warmth and authenticity of a physical event with the ease of organization, the possibility of detailed analysis and the global reach of a digital event. An app is definitely the best way to communicate with your audience on site and remotely.

A versatile and affordable communication tool

With an app, you meet all your needs in terms of communication. For event organizers, the app will be useful before the event to inform, during the event to animate and after the event to retain and analyze the audience. For cinemas or theaters, your app will be used to share your show times, but also as a ticket office or a loyalty card. You save time, money and resources.

The best solution to encourage interaction between the participants

Whether it's for entertainment or business events, it's crucial to create a buzz around your events in order to engage participants and build loyalty, even turn them into ambassadors. And what better way to encourage networking than with social features? With an app, your participants will be able to view each other's profiles, locate each other and even chat via a chat service. Your app can be used to connect with people while your events are taking place, but also to create a community beyond your events.
