We proudly sponsored the whole registration process of the event in terms of:
Online Registration & Ticketing
With the help of GEVME, we created a seamless online registration experience for the attendees in the events. The Event Organizer(EO) was able to make fully use of our highly customizable registration form that is both smart and responsive. EO was also successfully driving ticket sales with our customizable ticket settings and simple payment methods.
Onsite registration, Check-in & name badge printing
GEVME provided a hassle-free onsite check-in experience for all the attendees through the use of QR codes and barcodes. Attendees were delighted to check themselves in. We also printed personalised name badges that served as icebreakers at the events, thus creating a comfortable networking atmosphere for the attendees.
Event Sessions Check-ins/Tracking
With GEVME, users were able to create multiple check-in sessions to track attendance of the attendees. The EO simply filtered those who registered but didn’t show up and tracked those who came by simply using a separate session check-in.

GEVME helped in creating responsive landing pages that are easily customizable, SEO-friendly and social media ready.
