Whova 2018: Making Organizers’ Jobs Easier
It’s been a huge year for Whova, as we further advanced our technology and evolved to offer a better product for event organizers and attendees. As a quick recap, here’s what we’re most proud of this year in terms of making organizers’ jobs easier.
- With the multi-track support and track filtering, you can easily visualize and navigate a complicated agenda on a small screen. The color tagging, track filtering, and search options are especially useful.
- Session capacity and waitlist management are easy. You can keep track of session enrollment, estimate and/or set a capacity, automatically send attendees to a waitlist and check in attendees. You don’t need to worry about overcrowded or half-empty rooms anymore.
- Customizable agenda web pages can be created with just one line of copy & paste onto your event website. This is a favorite feature of organizers, as it will auto-update as speakers and schedules change, saving a whole lot of tedious work.
- It got more reliable, secure and faster. Whova Improved it’s underlying infrastructure so that it can easily handle over hundreds of thousands simultaneous users at events around the world.
Better Audience Participation than Ever
Importantly, we made event experiences even better by not only organically drawing them into event activities but empowering attendees to create personal experiences to achieve their goals. So many event organizers excitedly shared their success with us and thanked Whova for the following:
- With the versatile Community Board, attendees can coordinate a ride share, plan social activities and gatherings, create custom discussion topics, post job and career opportunities, create social groups, share interesting web articles, and more!
- The new leaderboard and the friendly competition game naturally draw attendees into the app and increase both the event participation and your app adoption. While earning scores, attendees can be well prepared, get the most out of the event, and make valuable connections.
- The fun-ice breaker helps attendees introduce themselves in a humorous way, start off their networking through the app even before your event begins, and get a conversation flowing smoothly.
