EventBank Releases New Community Product Updates

When was the last time you put on a suit? Or a dress? Or even pants?

Like everyone around the globe, the past few months have changed our lives and our work environment, maybe forever. No water cooler conversations about the latest office gossip, no happy hours with co-workers at the watering hole next door, and no industry conferences or seminars to attend and meet like-minded individuals. We are learning a whole new way of doing things, not just how to “Zoom”.

For EventBank, as we have been building the best membership and event management cloud software over the last seven years, we have learned that it is so important for professionals to participate in “communities” and events to continue building their business or their career. Our mission has always been to “to transform the way professional communities enable and enrich relationships” and it is our belief that these relationships are what is going to help propel the world out of this crisis.

Before, many professional communities were defined based on “when is the next event?” – whether it was a conference, seminar, networking event, expo, etc. Now, we must ensure that these communities exist all the time, even from our homes.

Over the past three months, since Covid-19 hit our Asia-Pacific operations and then our five other global offices, including here in the U.S., we have worked non-stop to come up with better technology for our clients to engage with their communities online. Today, after many sleepless nights, we are pleased to launch…
