Collecting Attendee Info

Pick a Ticket Platform

There are several tools you can use for your online registration. We play nice with virtually all of them. Recommendations to consider:

Feel free to use another solution. Just make sure it exports to an Excel/CSV file.

Ask the right questions

Your best chance to capture key attendee data is when certain points of information are required for registering. View an example.
  • Ask attendees for their position and company.
  • Ask required multiple choice questions as these questions will become your filters.
  • Ask for Twitter handles and Public LinkedIn URLs.
  • Feel free to ask for additional websites such as personal blogs, company websites, or anything else.
  • You can download our helpful event checklist (pdf)

I Already Setup Registration

If you didn't capture this info yet, don't sweat it. You can send out a followup survey to capture the missing information. Feel free to use any survey tool to do this or use our template to get you started. Just create a copy of google form, customize the questions, and send out to your attendees.

Exporting Registration Info

Attendee data is used to build your mobile app and ensure only attendees have access. Our software syncs this data with shared public profile information to build a more social profile without duplication of any information. It also provides existing social channels for attendees to connect with each other.
