The customer service was fantastic - everyone was very responsive and helpful. In comparison to other platforms it seems comparable but for a more affordable price.

There are no automatic emails except for when the submitter receives a confirmation of final submission.

The dashboard is awful and not intuitive at all. Their team does not seem to mind that the interface is not user friendly.

Great CFP tool

Reviewed a year ago

This software has made my life 100x easier.

Pros

This software has everything you need to deploy a successful call for papers tool for a large conference. From a user experience perspective it is very easy to navigate and submit your abstract. The blind and double blind feature is great so you don't have to worry about any unconscious bias when reviewers are scoring. This software has the capability to pre-load reviewers and auto assign based on submitter criteria. IT also includes any kind of report you can think of which makes it extremely easy for the administrator of the team.

Cons

There are no automatic emails except for when the submitter receives a confirmation of final submission.

Vendor response

eShow is a solid product with a lot of customization

Reviewed 6 months ago

eShow has met our needs well. It is not perfect, but it is a great product, especially if you plan ahead well.

Pros

The reporting is robust and customizable, the dashboard is easy to read, support is very helpful.

Cons

You have to rely on support for customization- they're great and can do it for you, but it's not easy to figure out yourself at times. No how-to manual is the most frustrating thing. Onsite staff while super helpful with set up, reporting, troubleshooting, etc. It doesn't include actual registration support- as in helping attendees register.

Vendor response

Hi Sarah- thanks so much for your candid feedback. We agree that the process for learning the system can be daunting, which is why we have recently added a new position to the team dedicated to customer education and developing comprehensive guides to assist in your success. Hopefully this new position and the tools developed will help greatly! Please let our leadership team know if there are additional pain-points that aren't addressed during your next event, as we always strive to make events easier for YOU, not us! Thank you again for trusting eShow, we look forward to a continued partnership!

It works for us….

Reviewed 2 months ago

Excellent

Pros

The support staff is excellent and the customization needed was able to be done per our needs. I love the number of pre-populated reports and how easy it is to get custom reports we need. Accessing on my iPad was a great feature and easy to use on the go.

Cons

The layout of the housing side of the platform.

Clunky and in need of upgrades

Reviewed 3 years ago

Mixed. I liked that it handled everything, hated actually using the software.

Pros

The software truly did it all, it was just difficult to navigate your way there. It manages both attendees as well as vendor registrations which was nice.

Cons

The dashboard is awful and not intuitive at all. Their team does not seem to mind that the interface is not user friendly.

Software is robust, customer service is stellar!

Reviewed 3 months ago

Utilizing Eshow for conference management, registration, exhibitor registration and various other event management functions in one central platform has helped with organization and implementation across various departments and assisted with streamlining communication

Pros

Product is intuitive and modules are easy to use. We are still learning all the various modules and how they can be implemented in our overall plan. Eshow is extremely robust and we are still exploring how we can best utilize the modules. The people behind eshow make it exceptional. Every representative we have dealt with with each module has been excellent. Ticket system for troubleshooting is extremely effective and always easy to get in touch with personnel to fix problems quickly and efficiently.

Cons

Just want to ensure all modules we are using integrate with each other. This comment may be premature but just wanted to be certain the meeting module integrates with the various other modules for example.

Vendor response

JODY! Where would we be without your amazing partnership? Thank you for your feedback. No comment is premature or out-of-line. Your concerns are valid and being addressed! Also- we are beyond pleased to know that our customer service sets us apart. Thank you for your continued trust in eShow, we look forward to the continued years of partnership, growth and expansion together!
