Organizing events—whether they’re small weekly classes, theater performances, huge golf tournaments, or any number of other charity fundraisers—is a complex and demanding task.

It doesn’t have to be!

With Neon CRM’s powerful event management functionality, you can streamline every aspect of your event planning process from start to finish.

Here’s how Neon CRM can take your event management to the next level.

Create Events Effortlessly

This intuitive tool guides you through the entire process, ensuring you don’t miss any crucial details. You can set up an event even more quickly by choosing from a variety of pre-designed templates that are made specifically for different types of events. 

Say you’re setting up a class, for example. The interface will guide you through entering the location, date and time, registration types, and more. You can even link instructors to the event, simplifying management and communication.

Highlighted features include:

  • Step-by-step event creation flow
  • Event templates for various event types like classes and performances
  • Flexibility to accommodate both one-time and recurring events

Efficient Seat Management

Are you organizing a theater performance or end-of-year dance showcase? You may want to set up assigned seating options… but that can be a huge task.

Neon CRM’s seat mapping feature simplifies the process!

It’s easier than ever to create detailed seat maps for your venue. This will both reduce the risk of booking errors and ensure a smooth experience for your attendees. Your audience will be delighted that they can select their preferred seat to watch the show.

Highlighted features include:

  • Simple seating assignments that reduce errors in seat management
  • Ability to maximize revenue opportunities
  • A more enjoyable booking experience for attendees

Targeted Event Marketing

Successful events start with the right audience—but reaching and engaging that audience can be tricky.

But what if you had tools that can make it easier?

With Neon CRM, you can precisely target your communications to reach the right people. Send targeted messages to different audiences based on their past interactions with you—it’s a great way to send messaging you know will most effectively get them to attend your event.

You can further boost registration by offering special rates for early registration or other discounts to your potential attendees. Try setting up promo codes or discounts for purchasing multiple tickets!

Highlighted features include:

  • Precise outreach for improved event success
  • Increased registration through tailored discounts
  • Personalized thank-you messages after the event is over

Effortless Ticket Sales 

Do you need to end registration before the event so you can share numbers with the caterer? Or do you need to limit the number of available tickets to account for your venue’s capacity? 

While you’re setting up your event, you can easily set a registration cut-off date and set a cap for the number of people who can sign up to attend. If someone registers and later realizes they can’t attend, it’s simple to refund their ticket or exchange it for something else.

Highlighted features include:

  • The ability to set up ticket sale limits according to your timeline and needs
  • Efficient ticket exchanges for seamless transactions
  • The ability to process refunds on the fly

Selling tickets—even if you’re selling tickets to events that have multiple dates, like this one—is straightforward for both your attendees and your staff. And, if someone needs to exchange or return their ticket, you can handle their request in minutes.

Engage Attendees 

Want to run more successful events? Give your attendees a better experience! 

Neon CRM modernizes the sales and check-in process for both your staff and your event attendees. Everyone will appreciate a shorter, more efficient admission process with quick check-in—it saves your staff some effort and sets the tone for an outstanding event. 

There are extra benefits for staff, too! Managing everything is easier now that they can access real-time attendance data, and digitally scanning tickets at the event will prevent fraudulent admissions.

Highlighted features include:

  • Speeds up the check-in and admission process
  • Provides real-time attendance data
  • Prevents fraudulent ticket entry
  • Simplifies ticketing with digital and printed ticket options
