Not only is the product innovative, but it also connects audiences in a way that has never been seen before. Verena Krausneker, Feldenkrais Institut Wien: “As a professional meeting facilitator & moderator, I ADORE my Catchbox! It always surprises the audience and keeps me from having to run around the room. Especially during Q&A session, I ask the first questioner to pass the Catchbox to the next person, which really increases audience engagement. And since I don’t have to run around, it saves precious time!”
Comparing to other event apps, Eventory wasn’t created by an IT department that has zero knowledge related to event management. Real planners (who truly understand the struggles of event managers) created the concept and the design of this app and web platform. Eventory is a powerful tool fully aligned with the planners’ needs. Moreover, Eventory focuses on helping planners to gather valuable data about their attendees. With Eventory, planners are able to transform the attendees’ actions and moves into valuable source of data, this way boosting not only the event experience, but also the event ROI.
“Eventory is great, easy to use application that can easily streamline the work of small team of people to you just clicking through the whole event setup, tracking and review.” CISCO
