Event Management vs. Event Automation

The emphasis of event management software tends to be directed to the activities required to plan, coordinate, and promote events.

Event Automation is different because it:

  • Captures and digitizes information about how prospects and customers interact with events, every step of the way.

  • Enables marketers to measure and understand the relative impact of events on revenue.
