Changes with EventsXD for 2017

By | News, Updates | No Comments

To our Amazing and Wonderful Community,

EventsXD had an amazing 2016 and unprecedented growth. We had events happening worldwide and from different industries. We could not have done it without your support, patience, and feedback. Thank you for joining us as we head into 2017.

Since the beginning, we set out to create an amazing platform for event organizers and provide a powerful tool to make the best event possible with ease, efficiency, and without breaking the bank. It is still our ongoing mission today.

We grew fast and we grew strong. We still continue our dedication to bringing new innovations to our platform and serving you the best we can while being self-funded.

To support our growing platform, our community, and the amazing team we have, we will be showing in-app ads to drive revenue and continue building the platform you all deserve. EventsXD offers a free platform because we believe anyone should be given the power to create amazing and stress free events using today’s technology. We are and always will be a free platform. The introduction of ads is to help offset our operation cost. Ads are shown on the EventsXD mobile app after an attendee visits your event screen. 

We will be adding the ability to remove in-app ads with a low cost upgrade which we call Freedom From Ads for $14.99 or you can get our new starter pack that combines Custom Branding and Freedom From Ads for $19.99, so you can provide the best experience to your guests. If you upgrade to a private conference or sponsor showcase, you automatically get an ad-free event. Head over to the “features” tab on your event dashboard to see the newest features.

We have also launched a white label enterprise application for events or conferences that need their own dedicated application. We are introducing it at half off for a limited time. Read more about it here.

We understand that many of you rely on EventsXD worldwide and we want to continue to bring you the best experience. Please feel free to let us know how we can serve you better.

Thank you from the entire EventsXD team.

EventsXD was at BizBash Live Expo in New York

By | News | No Comments

What an exciting week! EventsXD went to New York to exhibit at a tradeshow called BizBash Live Expo at the Jacob Javits Center. BizBash Live Expo is a tradeshow for event organizers and event supplies to connect and see the latest in the event industry. Naturally as one of the leading event apps for event organizers worldwide, we had to go!

It was a fun filled event, we were able to connect with many event planners, corporate event specialists and other event services. It was extremely successful for getting exposure and connecting with our customers. We learned some of their concerns, what features they were hoping for and happy when they were shocked that EventsXD is FREE to use. Our giveaway was a coupon code that unlocked all of our premium features to allow you to further customize your event to your brand. If you weren’t able to stop by and need a coupon code, send me an email and Ill be happy to send it over.

We also had a fantastic time touring New York and learning its rich and deep history.

In preparation for this exhibit, we created a new video which helped drive traffic to our booth and allow for a quick explainer. Check out the video here or head over to our Facebook page.

I’ll be doing a post on how we created our promotional video and how much impact it had at the exhibit so stay tuned for that!

With the recent 7.0.1 update of our android app, we wanted to announce another good news. The US Trademark application office has granted us rights to EventsXD®. It’s exciting news for us and we look forward to announcing new features coming soon!

We also wanted to share a tip to make your events more successful. When you create an event with EventsXD, all events come with a free event website.

What you get on the EventsXD’s Event Website:

  • Conference information including a map of the location
  • Social sharing links
  • Contact event organizer form
  • Speakers bio page
  • Session page where attendees can build their own personalized agenda for the event
  • Sponsor page
  • Custom pages

The most successful events we have seen at EventsXD took full advantage of the free event website letting their users know about the possibility of creating their own personalized agenda even before the event has begun. The agenda can then be viewed under “my agenda” in their EventsXD app and updated at anytime. This handy tool allows for event and conference attendees to have flexibility in their schedule and letting them attend the sessions they are interested in. Custom pages are used to give additional information such as travel, hotel, transportation.

You can read our guide to get started using your public event website.
