• Bizzabo Launched New Event Website Builder

    POSTED November 2, 2015

Bizzabo recently announced the launch of its easy-to-use event website builder, included free of charge for organizers using Bizzabo’s all-in-one event success platform. This platform allows event organizers to build a custom event website within minutes—no prior coding or design experience required. These sleek, professional cloudbased websites are fully integrated with wider event management software in order to streamline event planning and allow event organizers to keep event information timely across platforms.

“Developing a website builder was a crucial component of our event success platform,” says Bizzabo CMO and co-founder Alon Alroy. “Event organizers deserve a tool kit that allows for the ultimate event planning experience from beginning to end.”

Designed specifically for event planners, the event website builder delivers the ability to design and brand any event’s public image. Event organizers are granted full control over their web presence, ticket sales and registrations, while providing attendees with a seamless, registration experience, improving the overall event experience greatly. Key features include the ability to host the site at a URL of choice, on-site ticket-selling and customization capabilities, SEO optimization, and synchronization with smartphones and tablets. 

Event planners often prepare for the worst, but one thing they likely didn’t anticipate was a global pandemic when selecting event cancellation insurance policies for their 2020 gatherings. Panicked planners began contacting Marcia McKinney, owner of Northeast Insurance Advisors, in late February and early March, but as meetings and events ground to a halt, they were already out of luck.

“It’s kind of like trying to buy homeowner’s insurance as your house is starting to catch fire... it’s too late,” says McKinney.
