Event management & networking platform

4.9/5 (27 reviews)

Converve Overview

Converve is a cloud-based event management and attendee networking platform designed to allow users to manage all aspects of their events, including invitation email campaigns, attendee registration, payment processing, and more.

With Converve, users can create a custom branded event website, with the option to use a custom domain or subdomain instead of the default Converve domain, or integrate the event site into an existing website. Attendees can be allowed to register online through the site, with Xing and LinkedIn API integrations allowing for automatic field filling. Secure payment processing with a range of payment methods can be offered, including PayPal, credit card payments, and bank transfers. Automated HTML and plain text email campaigns can be created for event invitations, updates, and follow-ups, with the option to attach documents including personalized event schedules.

Converve allows event participants to network before, during, and after events, with personal, product, and company profile pages. Participants can browse the event catalog to identify potential contacts, partners, and customers, or use the potential matches generated by the built-in recommendation tool. Friend requests and private messages can be sent, and participants can also request face-to-face meetings at the event itself. Users have full control over whether participants can continue networking using the event platform after the event has ended.

The best meetings organisation platform as of 06/2018

Used Daily for 6-12 months

Great meetings organisation platform

Pros

I have worked with dozens of meetings organisation platforms since 2012 and must say that Converve is the best solution if you need something unique and highly customizable for your event. In addition the developers are very attentive and available.

I hope that Converve team will be able to keep the things rolling and we will see the perfect platform quite soon.

Cons

The possibility of having a template that you can apply to the same type of events during the year is missing. As of now, I need to spend a lot of time to fine tune the settings every time I would like to launch the new event.

Response from Converve

Vladimir, Thanks your review! To balance between software tailored for a specific event and a standard solution is always a challenge. We are working on a template solution you can reuse for event series.

This software compiled all our needs in a user friendly tool

Pros

This online B2B tool has been customized to our methodology and requirements. It is user friendly and includes all the functionalities we currently need to successfully organize a B2B event (application of companies, selection of companies, registration, B2B, reporting, communication and marketing functionalities are all included). The team is solution oriented, flexible and delivers on commitments.

Cons

We have not yet tested the tool in the least developed countries or places with unreliable Wifi access, but I am certain that the Converve team could help finding a plan B if this occurs.

Converve Appointment Platform Review - RTO Summits/Active America China

Used Monthly for 1+ year
Reviewed on 2016/12/14
Review Source: Capterra

We have been using the Converve appointment booking for the past year for 4 of our boutique networking conferences and just renewed our contract for the next year. Converve has been able to customize the platform to fit our needs exactly the way we want it. It is very easy to use from an admin and user point of view. We get lots of compliments from attendees on how easy the appointment scheduling process is, we've been told that we have the easiest scheduling system out of all the trade shows. The Converve customer support is very professional and easy to work with, they have worked really hard to set up a great system for us and are always on stand-by for any questions we may have throughout the appointment scheduling process.

Pros

It has been customized exactly to what we want/need. It is super easy to use both as an admin and also for the user/attendee. The support staff is great and easy to work with.

Well run, easy to customize and user-friendly software

Review Source: Capterra

We found the staff very helpful and available. They were eager to help us and respond to our needs. The Hosted Buyer program we ran included hundreds of participants from dozens of product categories over a 3-day event, and the software had no trouble finding matches, arranging meetings and changing schedules. Thank you very much!

Pros

The interface was very simple and took little time to learn for participants. The communication tools were clear, and most importantly, the quality of B2B matches was so high it was remarked on by numerous participants.

Cons

It did require some time to learn for the moderator, and since the software is so customizable, they can't really do a one-size-fits-all instruction manual. This meant a lot of training at the beginning.
