Event Espresso is a major technology sponsor of Social Media Week. Event Espresso provided core registration functionality and developed powerful user management controls. A major portion of our involvement was making sure the roles and permissions, with the addition of regional manager permissions, set up to work across the network of 12 different sites/event cities.
Seth worked with them personally to make sure that the development went smoothly. Social Media Week had one designer and two developers working on an integrated theme.
