Whova product overview

What is Whova?

Whova is a cloud-based event management software that enables businesses, universities, exhibitors, and government organizations to engage with attendees, generate name badges, handle online registration processes, and host video conferences. It lets organizers restrict event access to registered attendees, view recorded sessions and streams in a unified platform, and inform audiences about conference updates via push notifications.

Key benefits of using Whova

  • Whova's lead retrieval app helps trade show organizers automate processes for website creation, exhibitor profiling and communication, and booth mapping, improving business opportunities and lead capturing across exhibitions.

  • Administrators can build websites for specific events using preconfigured templates and utilize a centralized dashboard to gain insights into social media activities and refine marketing strategies to attract potential attendees.

  • Event organizers can use Whova's virtual conferencing capabilities to engage with attendees through live streaming, pre-recorded videos, polls or discussion forums, community boards, chats, and other networking or in-person events.

  • Whova provides a white-labeled mobile event application, which allows organizers to track personal agenda, take notes, share documents, scan attendees' business cards, communicate with sponsors or vendors, and more, whilst on-the-go.

  • Customizable event ticketing and registration functionality let administrators create various kinds of tickets based on events' requirements and include custom questions for attendees to fill out during registration.

    Pros
    This has been a useful tool for networking virtually. As an exhibitor we've had good attendance to our virtual booths and good lead generation.
    I would readily recommend this app for any group event for the ease of use and the ability to create better interaction with attendees and organizers.
    It was actually a very positive experience. The software worked great and we were able to accomplish more than I thought we would utilizing the virtual conferencing.
    Cons
    The only thing I can say disappointing about this software is that I was not exposed to it first.
    I'll be really disappointed if the next conference I attend - virtual or in real time - does not use it.
    There have been other virtual neuroscience meetings that have not worked well and as the president of our Flux society, I was nervous.

    As a frequent user - there's nothing better

    Reviewed 4 months ago

    I really appreciate the ability to look at other attendees profiles and see where they're from and connect. I've made a lot of connections this way and really love that function. It's also really easy to find event info (assuming event organizers add it in) and get updates when something changes.

    Pros

    As an attendee of events that use Whova, I love how seamless it is. I'm involved as a board member for some of these event organizations and the staff loves it as well.

    Cons

    There's nothing I don't care for. I know some users had problems with connectivity inside conference halls - so contributing questions for a speaker via the app, and staff receiving them can be a problem. Not sure what the

    Way to go Whova

    Reviewed 4 years ago

    This app was good to have to help me interact with others at the Convention, too bad one it over its over. I wasn't able to access the information like photos after the conference had been over for a while.

    Pros

    I found this software very helpful in keeping up the events at the Phi Theta Kapp National Convention. There were thousands of people and so many events it was overwhelming at times. I liked how the software helps you meet others at the convention, displays photos of events and there is ecen a messaging feature.

    Cons

    The only drawback I had using this software was trying to find an log onto the PTK Convention in the first place. It has been a year so maybe that issue was fixed. You had to wait and get a code to join the Convention, maybe PTK could have sent the code with the confirmation emails or something.

    Nice features but unreliable. Do not use for critical applications.

    Reviewed 2 years ago

    Pretty horrible if you have to explain an audience of 1000+ people that the app was down for >1.5 hours mid-conference.

    Pros

    Nice features, admin interface relatively user-friendly, user-interface very user-friendly.

    Cons

    I used it for a large virtual conference (1000+ attendees, up to 10+ parallel sessions), and it was down for >1.5 hours. Extremely embarrassing and impossible to recover from it. Medium impact weakness is that the interface is not very responsive (i.e. slow). Minor impact (but nonetheless frustrating) weakness is that the admin interface is buggy (or has 'quirks' like they call it themselves). From lots of things we could notice this is not a company built on solid software engineering (e.g. they use "FirstName LastName" as the 'key' to identify attendees, and some of the admin features behave in a very illogical and unexpected manner).

It is so valuable in keeping us on track .

    Pros

    Its a Powerful Software that is designed such that its easy to use.

    Cons

    The desktop app could need More features.
