Pros: Ease of integration with Facebook events and seems to also allow crowdsourced data. There's a specific niche for concert and entertainment event searchers. Looking for something to do locally, or find out what cool events are happening in the area.

Cons: Not easy to navigate as a conference attendee, not able to get the latest updates or the full agenda of the conference. Also battery draining. But the team is always looking to make improvements and work with us closely to make it a better experience overall.

Pros: We used this software for our event in Miami, we only got access to the platform a few days before our event, and it was a lovely surprise to find it:
Easy to use
Great support
Seamless Integration with Marketing/ Social Media plans

Cons: The only con I have for this product is that it needs to be more widely advertised. While it was of great value to us in such a short period, if we had it sooner the ROI would have been even better.

Overall: Great traction in advertising our event to new markets. Great on site engagement with our patrons also via the social networking tool.

Thanks for your review. We continue to add more events to PLAYEN every week and now average over 220 000 active events listed at any moment. We are working with many events organizers to increase the number of business events and we are sure you will be seeing many more in the coming weeks and months.

Definitely a great tool for venues and customers

Pros: Great place to find a collection of events nationally. Very up to date and easy to navigate as a customer and organizer.

Cons: Waiting for the subscription service to start. I also wish there were more options instead of just providing free tickets.

Overall: It helped gain exposure for the company I am affiliated with

Thank you for the review and valuable feedback. A few weeks ago we launched "Boost", an easy tool for locally targeted event promotion. Yes, more ticketing options are in the works and coming soon, we'll let you know as soon as they are up and running! If you'd like to be part of our "tickets Beta test group", send an email to your PLAYEN Client Ambassador. Have you tried the notifications features to interact with your audience? -Playen-
