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.

    Whova for a Virtual Event Win!

    Reviewed 4 years ago

    With six weeks to go for a virtual 4-day conference, Whova met all the requirements we were looking for in a virtual conference experience for both the organization and the attendees. The price point was ideal for a small organization, and their a la cart pricing helps keep within any budget. It was a very successful event for the organization and discussion is to have some virtual option moving forward, even if we still hold an in-person event.

    Pros

    A Small non-profit I work with moved their in-person event to virtual event for 2020. With 6 weeks until the event start in September, a decision was made to move it to a more robust option allowing for sponsor interaction. Whova came through for us in many ways - financially, user-friendly for both back end and attendee end, integration with already existing registration platform - RegFox, Zoom interface, meeting rooms, session surveys and robust reporting. Any issues we had and sent support emails were addressed in a timely manner. They offer several help documents and videos to walk you through various set-up and troubleshooting.

    Cons

    Be aware that Whova has their own drip-campaign of emails they send to those attending your event. We were not aware of these prior to them sending, and it cause a bit of confusion and frustration on our end. We are not able to see in advance nor edit those emails, which also contained information not pertinent to our virtual event. We did address this with our sales person in our post-event meeting, and this is an issue they are aware of and addressing.

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

    Reviewed 4 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).

    Don't plan a conference without Whova!

    Reviewed 3 months ago

    A very positive experience. In the two weeks before the conference, I was able to create my 'booth' for others to find out more about my business. At the conference, everyone I spoke to was happy to share their QR code (when I showed them what to do!) therefore, I had all of their details (including email addresses) for contacting them on my return home.

    Pros

    As an exhibitor looking for business, I have found that conferences offering the Whova app are way better than those without. Prior to the conference, you can make links, see if there are particular people you would like to factor into your time and you can arrange meet ups with groups. Being competitive, I can't help myself but like to be on the leaderboard and message those around me!! Using the 'scan a contact' feature was brilliant! Unfortunately, the organisers didn't know about this feature to tell us until the second last day but we definitely made good use of it!

    Cons

    When arranging a meet up, your numbers are limited to 50 at a time and you are only allowed to offer two meet ups until you have four people having replied to say they will be there. At a conference with 1500 attendees, being able to message just 100 of them isn't enough...particularly when some people clearly weren't looking at their app so that invite was wasted!
