Boomset is a startup founded by two friends who were tired of waiting at the door to get into events. The company was created to offer event planners new and better solutions to utilize with event staff, exhibitors, vendors, speakers, attendees, marketing executives, and other professionals.

What happens when multiple users with the same email register in Boomset?
It is possible for multiple guests in Boomset to share an email address. Since users sign in with their email, only one of the guest's information will be brought over by default. To address the email duplication issue, you should manually update the guest's email in order to have it populate correctly in the Socio Platform. Click here to learn more about Socio's user profile.
What happens when an update happens in Boomset?
Fields pulled from Boomset overwrite the fields on the Socio Platform. Keep this in mind and avoid integrating fields that you or the Boomset users might update frequently, such as the biography.
It's also possible to only bring over attendee information one time, and not sync updates. Let us know in advance if this is something you're interested in.
