What is the Socio Platform?

The Socio Platform is the management portal that event and community organizers use to build attendee registration and event experiences that delight. 🤩 Whether your event is in-person, virtual, or hybrid, it's your team's gateway to building, managing, and controlling everything Socio. The Socio team is dedicated to creating the best event technology in the world and backing it with our world-class support team.

Manage Anywhere!

With a mobile responsive design, the Socio Platform lets you oversee your event using your computer from your office, the tablet you carry around while preparing for your event, or from the phone in your pocket at all times! The product works when your event needs you — because your event isn’t run from your office, so neither should your software. 👍

Socio Registration pairs pre-event and in-event data for a more holistic picture of each attendee’s experience (and all the insights that we can glean). Plus, Socio Event Registration is easy to set up, allowing you to spend your time doing what you do best - putting on amazing events.

You have enough to deal with on event day, so we've made Socio Onsite to be the most simple and intuitive event check-in and badge printing solution out there. With Onsite's simple, intuitive badge editor, create custom badges tailored to different Attendee Types.

No hardware? No problem! You can rent iPads, stands, printers, and routers from us, and we'll order your badge stock, too. Everything you need is shipped directly to your venue.

There's so much more to Onsite, so go ahead and check this out!

Communities are just like events, except their time frame can be months or even years! A community can support a variety of business goals, from growing your member base, increasing brand loyalty, keeping attendees hyped and engaged throughout your annual event cycle, and gathering feedback and use cases.

Branded Mobile App

Every event can use Socio's Mobile App at no additional cost, but what if you want the mobile app to be only yours? Socio makes it simple to create your own Branded Mobile App and publish it to the Google Play Store and Apple App Store.

Lead Retrieval

Lead Retrieval turns every booth at your in-person venue into a lead generator! Your Sponsors and Exhibitors can easily and instantly capture attendee information at conferences, trade shows, and other in-person events. They simply scan attendees' QR codes and then rate a lead's quality, export to their CRM, review real-time metrics, and smash ROI.

Live Display

Live Display is perfect for showing event information and attendee interactions on any screen. This display gives Attendees the same branded experience no matter where they look.

You juggle enough, Live Display is designed to be one of the simplest event tools you'll ever use (but we're still here whenever you need help!). Live Display leverages content that you've already created in your Event App to deliver a seamless experience, with virtually no maintenance.
