Apps for event planning

Planning an event is a huge and complex undertaking, with countless tasks to keep track of, tight deadlines and multiple stakeholder demands.

Thankfully, with the use of digital technology, the enormity of event planning becomes a whole lot easier.

And with most solutions now offered through apps, you gain the added convenience of accessing them on your smartphone or device, while on the go.

Here are our favourite apps for event planning:

Eventbrite – a ticketing website and app that allows you to go paperless through online event registration and ticketing. The app allows attendees to show their tickets on their phone, and for hosts to quickly scan at the door, with the attendee list updated in real time.

QuickCal – an intuitive calendar app that lets you create events using natural language, for example, ‘event starts @5’. It gives you reminders, shows you multiple calendars and provides views of upcoming events.

Scanner Pro – go paperless with your documents and receipts by scanning them into the Scanner Pro app. It scans documents with a snapshot and converts them to PDF, ready to email or save.

Super Planner – don’t stress about running out of drinks or overcrowding anymore, Super Planner calculates venue capacities, staffing, and catering to avoid these kinds of issues.

Asana – a task management app, Asana let’s your team collaborate seamlessly together. It allows for project teams to allocate, organise and manage tasks or communicate directly using chat functions.
