Raising the Bar for a Single Event
Last month, we broke new records when one of our customers hosted an online event that had 5,152 people in attendance – a 159% increase from the previous record. 🎉
Here are some interesting stats from that event:
- 93% of attendees that filled in an automated post-event survey said that they are likely to attend future events. An overwhelming majority gave the event 4 to 5 stars when rating overall satisfaction (out of 5).
- With 29 booths, each booth had an average of 572 visits throughout the 7-day event. The highest was 2,659!
- 72% of attendees entered the event from their mobile device – proving once again that it's important to choose virtual event technology that's designed to be mobile-friendly. Like Fairwiz!
Features, fixes, and enhancements to make your job easier.
- Bulk import attendees. Collected event registrations from a different marketing channel? Now you can bulk import those contacts into Fairwiz!
- Automated post-event surveys. You'll be able to automatically get feedback about what your attendees thought of their online event experience with you.
- Enhanced landing page builder. We'll be making it easier customise your event registration pages.
- We squashed bugs. Lots of them. 😊
- New dashboard. We're working hard to upgrade the dashboard and make it intuitive, user-friendly, and modern.
- New attendee UI/UX. In addition to the new dashboard, we're also improving the user interface of the attendee.
