How many Activities will you consume?

An event is an outcome of a number of different activities over a period of time. Examples of activities are the various Speakers, Sponsors, Exhibitors, Marketing Programs, Registration, Accommodation, etc. that you need to manage for your event.

A small, half-day event with one meeting room, 5 speakers, breakfast and lunch, attendee registration, and marketing would involve the management of approx. 10-15 activities.

A larger 2-day conference with multiple breakout rooms, sponsors, speakers, multiple meals, etc., would involve the management of approx. 50-75 activities or more.

Our pricing model reflects the typical workload different groups of users can manage over the course of a year. This workload is represented in terms of total activities managed across all events you do.

We believe this pricing model would be a fair way to apply to teams that do a lot of small events as well as to teams that do a few large events per year. Or some combination of big and small events.

Of course, we welcome your feedback to help improve the model!
