Thankfully, with SpotHero, guests can find a parking location, reserve it online or through the app, and pre-pay to secure it. All you have to do is pull up!

Let’s face it, we all have our phones glued to our hands majority of the day. So why not create a hub where you can send attendees to for event information, rsvp’s, engagement and more. Guests can stay up-to-date with all event information and last-minute updates with push notifications, or they can interact with other guests by asking questions through a forum-like system.
Use social media for event promotion and feedback.
Branded hashtags, live streaming, custom geofilters, polls, contests, the list goes on. Social Media is an amazing tech tool for event planners. Not only does it encourage guests to show behind the scenes and in-the-moment photos and updates, it also provides event planners with insights on what guests enjoy or don’t enjoy as well as see feedback and suggestions – all for free! Online users are more than willing to share their experience online, so let them with social media.
