The four reasons you should choose EventsFrame over Eventbrite

Sunday 7th January, Rauris, Austrian Alps

Eventbrite is the 800-pound Gorilla in the ‘events software’ space. It’s the system most people start off with when they first run events and we were no different over at AppsEvents where we used Eventbrite for three years. Eventually it became unsuitable for our needs (more info coming next week in the blog on ‘The Origin Story of EventsFrame’) and led us to develop our system, which we aimed to improved on EventBrite in three specific ways:

Multi Event Reporting - Eventbrite allows you to run multiple events BUT it doesn’t allow you to easily report across multiple events. As an event organizer this means you have to look at one event at a time. With EventsFrame you can filter, sort and report on any field across multiple events, and for detailed analysis our ‘spreadsheet export’ function means you can instantly look at your date in Google Sheets or Excel

Cost - This is a no brainer. Eventbrite charges yo a ticket fee of 3% on every ticket. Our pricing is simple and up-front. $100 per month for as many events you want! You can set any ticket price and have as many attendees you want…. This means no ticket fees ever. Remember this is on top of the money you are paying to PayPal (which both systems work great with)

Flexibility of ticket types and discounts - Check out this short video from co-founder James Sayer for a two-minute intro to our features. We run multiple events a year and we know the level of flexibility that event organizers need.

A beautiful UI - It’s simple, it’s elegant, it calculates the total order price on screen as you go…. automatically adding discounts. Again James’ video shows how this works.

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 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
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…
