Groupize, the most innovative all-in-one platform for travel and event management, today announced the launch of a DIY Attendee App for virtual, hybrid, and in-person events and meetings. Designed for events of any size, from internal meetings to large conferences, the app allows companies to level up their experiences for events such as e-learning, training, e-recruiting, team building, trade shows, and more, but for a lot less than existing options.
Industry research shows that average event apps cost between $2,500-$19,000 and can be complicated to deploy. The Groupize Attendee App includes all the must-have features and is not only cost-effective but is the only DIY app that needs no designer or coder.
“There is a huge demand for solutions that cater to events when a virtual link just isn’t enough,” explains Groupize CEO Alisa de Gaspe Beaubien. “In line with our vision and passion, we created this app for company-wide adoption to address an untapped and underserved market. Our app starts at $500/eventand can be configured easily and quickly using company-approved templates. In just minutes, users can elevate their events into interactive, branded, hybrid, and professional experiences with zero training.”
The Groupize Attendee App works with video conferencing services like Zoom, Microsoft Teams, GoToMeeting, Google Hangouts, Amazon Chime, Ring Central, WebEx, and others.
Additionally, the app offers a virtual networking experience with spatial recognition that comes as close to in-person networking as possible. Planners can create spaces with virtual backgrounds such as lobbies, stages, exhibition halls, conference rooms, or bars. Attendees can navigate from room to room and network directly with other attendees within their virtual proximity.
Charles de Gaspe Beaubien, Groupize CCO & Head of Product, adds, “For the last year, I have been pulling my hair every time I had to participate in virtual events on the existing and confusing virtual apps the industry uses. We might not be the first to market with a hybrid attendee app, but we are thrilled to have the opportunity to deliver best in class usability for a fraction of the cost of those legacy systems.”
