Some key statistical information
In January 2018 EVENTMANAGERBLOG conducted one of the largest pieces of event planning research ever completed with 2,400 contacts and over 1,000 respondents. The key findings from the research are:
- 53% of the event planners, marketing agencies, and other independent organizers don’t use any form of event management software;
- 60% of event organizers expect their use of event technology to rise in 2018;
- support is the core value for event organizers while the most expected features are: online registration, e-mail marketing, and survey tools;
- independent tools (80%) seem to win over all-in-one solutions (9%) in the event industry;
- the price (61%), too complex and time-consuming (42% together) are the main reasons why most event planners don’t use technology.
It seems that there is a huge gap in the market that can be filled by software providers but they have to reshape their products to better suits clients’ needs. The more comprehensive analysis is available here.
