EventZilla – Online Event Registration
Found In: Business
Historically, event management has been big business and a tightly controlled cartel of a small number of event organizers who have always tended to squeeze out competing promoters and organizers by means of proprietary ticketing software solutions. For example, if a large or aspiring music band wanted to go on tour, often it could come down to which organizer has the more efficient ticketing software solution that would win the contract to provide the marketing, promotion and venue management services and with them holding the leverage of the ticketing solution, often the organizer could and has extorted unfair commercial advantages over the entertainers. That is, many an entertainer has not wanted to agree to the terms of deals presented to them by an organizer, but there simply was no other alternative to the ticketing solution needs and so great concessions had to be given away on the venue marketing and management rights and the promotion as a whole simply because the organizer had exclusive access to the ticketing system.
Eventzilla is a complete turnkey solution to this dilemma because it enables any group of interested people to host their own event promoting it the way they see fit. By having an end to end ticketing solution that works on and offline, entertainers and event managers are able to avoid expensive set up fees entirely, and instead only pay a fee per paid up attendee. And so Eventzilla is an online event registration and ticketing software solution for anyone big or small hosting an event or conference, seminar, fundraising event or training workshop. With now more than one thousand event driven organizers from all around the world now using Eventzilla, they are easily and professionally able to handle all the complex registrations processes and to attend to payments and ticketing either online, offline or both while they promote their events on Facebook and or Twitter. That is. Eventzilla easily manages all attendee communications, confirmations and cancellations quickly and efficiently and integrates with modern marketing tools like the social networks.

It was always designed around supporting the needs of small to medium size events with a cost effective model, and yet its functionality can handle the most complex and largest events with ease.

The Eventzilla system is designed to integrate with both Facebook and Twitter for social network marketing of events meaning that promotion and ticket sales can be achieved with remarkably low and efficient cost structures.
