Bizzabo, QuickMobile Win Event Tech Awards

Bizzabo reinforced its reputation as a leader in the meetings and event industry by claiming two honors during the Event Tech Awards, which was part of the Event Tech Live conference last week in London. The all-in-one event success platform won for Best Event Management Software and was voted Favorite Event Technology Supplier in The People’s Choice Award.

“Ultimately, we built Bizzabo to empower event organizers to plan better events and we are honored to be recognized for the tangible impact that our product is making,” said Eran Ben-Shushan, CEO and co-founder of Bizzabo. “To be recognized by both industry experts and event organizers from all around the world for the new platform we launched in February 2015 is incredibly exciting for us. This especially proves to us again and again that our industry is evolving, and the innovative approach we took is perfectly aligned with the needs of modern event planners. This has been an exciting year for Bizzabo and we are very proud of this fantastic recognition. Our talented team (aka “Bizzaboers”) have worked closely with each and every one of our event organizers, listening and understanding their real needs.”

Bizzabo is used by thousands of meeting and event planners around the world. It has offices in New York and Israel.

Vancouver-based QuickMobile won Best Event App and Best Use of Gamification. The gamification award was based on QuickMobile’s leading-edge mobile deployment for Danone UK’s Connect Live internal kickoff event.

“Event apps have come a long way since QuickMobile first introduced the concept back in 2007, with more and more vendors joining the ranks every year,” said David Smith, CEO for QuickMobile. “It’s a great honor to earn this recognition at the Event Tech Awards, which could not have happened without the drive and creativity of our client, Danone UK. It’s really their vision and effort that is being recognized today, and I want to share this award with them and all the talented people at QuickMobile.”

The Connect Live app achieved a 96 percent activation rate, was opened an average of 33 times by each attendee, who spent an average of 43 minutes in the app. Survey response rates topped 60 percent compared to less than 30 percent for non-app surveys.
