Give attendees the option of joining a waiting list when your event is full

If your events are popular, or if you are restricted on the number of people you can have, you may find that you need to have a waiting list. This means that, if your event is full, people can add themselves to a waiting list. If someone drops out of your event then the person on the waiting list can be added to the list of attendees. You can require that wait-list attendees pay for their spot in line so that you can try to add more capacity to your event.

Check-in attendees by scanning event tickets or looking them up with a mobile app

Our event app allows you to transform your Android and/or Apple mobile device into an onsite attendee management tool. The event app gives event managers the ability to manage check-ins at the door of your events. You can even use the event app to scan tickets (optional upgrade), check attendees in/out of events, view attendee/registration and event info.

Event managers can also login to the website to view attendance records, generate an attendance list and export the list to a report in CSV format.
