The Pros

Makes Life Easier: Event apps help to simplify the registration and ticketing process so that you can concentrate on doing other things. It also doesn’t take a lot of resources to set up an an event page.
Easier Promotion: Many event apps come with the ability to create clickable widgets to be embedded on websites or social networks, which can be very useful to promote your events.
Improved Experience: By using an event app, you can create customized messages to keep attendees updated about different aspects of an event, such as major attractions, speakers, etc.
Increase Engagement: By providing a platform to discuss and share information, it helps to increase attendee engagement. You can also create real-time reports to analyse your event’s performance.

The Cons

Subscription Costs: The Majority of top event apps cost money to use, with some even charging an additional amount for each ticket sold.

Lack of Reach: Not many attendees may know about or be willing to download your event app, which can, in turn, negatively affect your total attendance.
