We’re letting more people into the beta for managing the entire conference website. Our goal for these websites is to have simple defaults that are clear and engaging from the attendee perspective, but flexible when the conference organizer needs it. But what does that mean concretely?
Below is the basic feature list. If you want to participate in our beta, fill out this beta request.
Page Builder: You can’t have a website without web pages. This is the feature that lets you manage your home page or your contact page, for example.
Sponsor Listings: Easily enter information about your sponsors and have them show up on a single listing page. Entering sponsors is meant to be simple enough that you don’t have to get your web designer involved.
Program Listings: Easily enter all of your events, talks, sessions and activities.
Presentation Files: Post your presentation files and session handouts. If some of your presentations are hosted on a service like Slideshare, we handle that too.
Speaker Listings: Easily enter speaker bios and photos.
Mobile Website: We’ll display a mobile optimized version of your website that will work on any phone’s web browser.
Session Ratings: Simple online ratings that attendees can give from their computer or their phone.
Registration Integration: We don’t do registration, but we connect directly to two of the best, Eventbrite and Regonline. Or you can connect your registration directly to us through our API.
Social Attendee Directory: This was our original feature, a social network to give attendees an opportunity to connect before they show up.
Attendee Discussions: Let attendees discuss the conference beforehand, let speakers get feedback on their topcs.
Agenda Builder: Let attendees bookmark activities that they are interested in and see who else is in a session with them.
