Technology: Hosting an Event? There's an App for That

By Selena Fragassi


In recent years, mobile apps have become a planner’s best friend. With just the swipe of a finger, you can sell tickets, track registration, monitor social media activity, store all invoices and files and pretty much have your complete control center in the palm of your hand. Not only that, but the technology is rapidly changing and getting better with each new virtual introduction. In that spirit, we’ve compiled three of the best new apps you should download before your next event.

Eventbrite Neon
If you thought the Eventbrite app was great, it just got a whole light brighter. Neon now allows you to sell tickets to an event on the spot or even after its begun—and offer last-minute discounts. It accepts mobile payments, can scan ticket barcodes for easy entry, keeps track of your guest list and compiles data you’ll need later.

Crowd Mics
How many times have you wanted to ask a participant to speak up during an audience Q&A? Not anymore with Crowd Mics, which instantly turns any iOS or Android device into a wireless microphone. Your attendees simply need to download the app, then speak into their phone and their voice will be heard loud and clear over the room’s sound system. There’s also a text comment and polling feature.

When you don’t have a budget for a photographer or need to capture quick but high-quality shots of your event, turn to Expositor. This photo-focused app helps amateurs determine the right shutter speeds and exposure settings by answering a few questions about your surroundings so you get the perfect image every time.
