EventsFrame update and Taiwan trip recap


Sunday 21st January 2018 - KLM Business Lounge Amsterdam Airport - en-route from Taipei back to Prague

Thats me in the photo 'rockin' the mic' at our Taiwan Google Summit ;)

I have spent the past six days in Taiwan exploring some new areas with my wife, meeting sponsors, talking with entrepreneurs, catching up with friends and making new acquaintances. The central reason for the visit though was for our fourth annual Taiwan Google for Education Summit this weekend, managed by EventsFrame co-founder James Sayer....It's important to emphasise again that we run a large GLOBAL events company, and crafted EventsFrame initially for ourselves. Myself and co-founder Simon Payne come from the SAAS world so we exist at the intersection of beautifully designed, usable technology and streamlined in person events.

So on to EventsFrame updates. This week we pushed two new features to the live system:

1. Invoices for offline payment - You can now easily create invoices through EventsFrame for attendees who don't want to pay online.

2. Spreadsheet export for all user and order data - This is a game changer for you! Most systems have clunky reporting interfaces and if you run multiple events like we do you just want to set your data free and get it it into a spreadsheet so you can sort and filter - so thats what we've given you :) Remember EventsFrame is the one events system that has seamless granular reporting for MULTI-EVENT producers.

What EventsFrame learned from Eventbrite

We founded EventsFrame after our endless search for an awesome event ticketing and attendee management system. We started as many people do with Eventbrite and after racking up fees to Eventbrite of over $6000 a year for a pretty average product we started to plan our own system. That system became EventsFrame…. Quite simply the best way to sell tickets and manage attendees for any event producer, big or small.
So what were the three BIG problems with Eventbrite that lead us to develop our own system? Here you go….

1.It’s crazy expensive

It boggles the mind but Eventbrite is still getting away with charging 99c plus 2.5% of your ticket fee! Now here is the problem.... Most other ticketing companies base their pricing off Eventbrite as it’s what they feel they can get away with. We can tell you categorically there's not much more work involved to process 5 tickets compared to 50 so why charge more? This was a fundamental founding principle for us. Unlimited events and unlimited att…

How to run an events company on (almost) completely free tools

Edinburgh, Scotland 18 Feb 2018

I'm just heading back to Prague after a fun weekend catching up with University friends in Edinburgh. The photo above was taken in the BrewDog pub and as a huge fan of the company (and as a shareholder via 'Equity for Punks') I'm on a mission to visit all their worldwide bars...so far I've been to Hong Kong, London and Edinburgh.

So for this weeks post I wanted to give a quick 'behind the scenes' look at a multi-event company, and the software systems we use to manage and promote all our events. I think this information is useful whether you are running one event a year, or 100's like us.

Three of the co-founders of EvensFrame work at AppsEvents, a 'Google for Education' partner who runs over 300 events annually quite literally across the globe....from Peru to Oman to South Korea. When we founded AppsEvents in 2012 we built the business as a globally distributed team (more on that on a future post), and almost com…

How to get attendees to actually turn up to your free events

I'm across in Dubai this week running a free event so it's the perfect time to release this post. We asked our customers to tell us the number one topic they wanted to hear about on the bog and this was it! I hope you like it and please check out our amazing attendee ticketing and registration system over at www.eventsframe.com
How to get attendees to actually turn up to your free events It's the problem every producer faces at some time. You’ve done all the hard work, the venue is ready, the catering ordered, the name badges laid out. So you pace around....and wait….and wait…. for the first attendees to arrive. You don’t know if everyone will come. Will it be 80%? Will it be half? Will it be noone? The first attendees arrive and you relax a little, but now much.
We’ve all been there. At our company AppsEvents we have run over a hundred free events, ranging from small promotional sessions, to large conferences funded by sponsors. Along the way we have learned a lot and ref…
