Best event planning software

An event organizer knows that without tools for managing logistics of an event, it's hard to organize it, even with a lot of experience.

The good news is that there is now software to help organizers. The bad news is that there are so many platforms that when choosing one, you will inevitably fall victim to “analysis paralysis ”.

In order to help you avoid this, we've compiled a checklist to assist you in choosing the right product.

To qualify for inclusion in the Event Planning category, a product must facilitate logistical planning of the event. This also includes assisting in developing the exhibition layout, including floor plans and seating charts, as well as helping to develop the layout functionality.

This software also has to help  :

  • schedule the development process

  • manage staff resources,

  • track expenses and payments.

  • Maybe you need to quickly launch a website for an event?

  • How will you interact with your visitors?

  • Which registration tool do you prefer to use?
