What is event layout software?
At its simplest, event layout software enables you to visualize a physical event space. This includes the ability to plot and move around furniture and other items that may be included in an event plan. More advanced event layout software offers a range of features, including the ability to manage attendee lists and account for individual attendee needs, designate areas of an event space for different purposes (like a dance floor or catering area), and more.
The best event layout software:
- Automatically lays out common event setups, or templates, to save you hours of repetitive work.
- Fosters clear communication with venues to encourage collaboration, not frustration.
- Functions as a sales and marketing tool, rather than just an operational tool.
What are some benefits of event layout software?
- Increased revenue from upsells and cross-sells.
- Higher close rate and client satisfaction due to enhanced communication and collaboration.
- Confidence in safety and event spacing; planners can see what their event will look like and have confidence in their vision.
- Events are easier to execute with a clear, visual plan.
