Comments: I'd first like to say that the customer service for Message Blocks is absolutely impeccable. The response time, availability, and overall willingness to provide us with whatever we needed was incredible and refreshing.

I found the registration platform to be very easy to use and set up. I appreciate having the dashboard visually display the registrations we have throughout the day, as well as having the ability to add custom questions to the registration page. We were able to include breakout sessions in the agenda and gauge interest of the attendees before the event date. The export included all of the relevant information we needed, and also helped us collect information we would not be able to collect with similar platforms.

I think the most important thing I would comment on is their innovation and constant improvement. This is something that I haven't seen in any other system. From mobile application development, to event check-in and automated badge printing, MessageBlocks is constantly working to make all areas of event preparation and execution more efficient.

Len and team are always working to ensure the customer is taken care of and has a great experience from start to finish. Using this event management software has exceeded my expectations, and has also provided unique ways to improve the overall event experience.

Comments: Message Blocks is an overall effective platform for event management. There are a few key details that my organization needed to be more in depth for our events. Although this created some hurdles, the MB staff were very accessible and offered creative ways to get around those hurdles. Now, together, we are working on expanding the platform to meet our specific event needs. This kind of attention to the client is a very important aspect vital to successful event planning. Great team, mainly user friendly platform, and overall very good experience.

Comments: The Michigan Realtors® event team has been using Message Blocks for about six months. We have used Message Blocks for traditional events and even a couple of non-traditional items. Message Blocks provides us with ease of use and the flexibility we demand in event management. What has been most beneficial to us is the control we have over program content from any device, any where.

The Message Blocks team has been there for any questions or problems we have encountered. They have created an environment that encourages users to share ideas to improve the program based on their needs. Ashley and Len have been great at providing tools to accomplish tasks when we needed to capture specific information in our registration process.

After having 3 different event management programs in the last two years we couldn't be more please with the switch to Message Blocks. We look forward to what is to come and how our partnership with Message Blocks will grow our events.

Comments: Meaningful events take time, purpose and energy; every event planner knows this. The events I've been responsible for since using Message Blocks have gotten easier and easier. Message Blocks is now a necessary building block to making my events happen. I start with a template I'm very familiar with, bring in all the people I need to volunteer and get help from key people. All the components I need to produce a smashing success of an event can be conducted through Message Blocks. What's the best part? There's little to no lost time when I need help. The Message Blocks staff IS the best part.

Message Blocks Rocks!

Comments: Message Blocks is a great tool! We love the binder function to keep everyone on our team up to date on the most recent versions of documents. Before, we used to email items back and forth and before you know it, there are 3 versions of the same document floating out there that everyone believes has the current information.

The custom questions are awesome and really tailor our registration to capture the information we need; it is not just a run of the mill registration form, it is more robust than that. The reports are also really easy to use and pull out the custom questions in a seamless and easy to read way.

One thing I am looking forward to is the development of a more robust invitation system so we do not have to manually take out those who already registered before I send out another reminder to register. That is something we have not been able to find in other services and I think it will be tremendously helpful!

The best part of Message Blocks is the Message Blocks team. They are always excited to help and are constantly seeking feedback and ways to make their product better. They definitely put the customer's needs first.

Comments: Message Blocks made planning our launch party quicker and easier. We were able to dump in a contact list, track RSVP's on a simple dashboard, and send updates to attendees. The only con is we thought our emails may have ended up in some spam boxes since we didn't get nearly as many RSVP's as we thought with our original blast out but that might not have been the case.

Customer service was great, we had a question about integrating graphics and we had an answer back right away. Overall we really enjoyed Message Blocks and plan to use the service again in the future.

Message Blocks is the greatest new event management site out there!

Pros: Customer service is phenomenal. Message Blocks went above and beyond to meet our event needs. They even went so far as to customize the colors of our registration page to meet our event - without us suggesting so!

Cons: Some features are not fully developed but I trust they are well on their way. As we ran into snafoos (and we did), Message Blocks was incredibly responsive and pro-active in answering questions and fixing glitches.

Overall: I highly recommend Message Blocks. It is an amazing tool for anyone looking to easily and effectively manage paid OR un-paid events. Thumbs up!

Amazing Service and Intuitive Interface!

Pros: Message Blocks was able to provide everything we needed for our event registration and was always available if we had any questions or concerns. Their response time was excellent! Message Blocks was extremely easy to set up, but also very customizable for our event needs! We also had feedback from many registrants that this was the best and easiest event registration we've ever used. We work with a lot of non-Tech savvy individuals, so this was a huge plus for us!

Cons: When we were first setting up our registration on Message Blocks, there were some features that weren't available yet. However, when we mentioned these issues to Message Blocks they created features to meet our needs within a very short time frame!

Overall: I would highly recommend Message Blocks to any company that needs a customizable registration solution for any event. It is extremely scalable for any size of event and can even act as an entire event management system. They have created a central location for all event planning needs and made it super easy to use!
