Life on the road isn’t always easy, but isn’t it wonderful when you check into a hotel and have the concierge there to answer your questions, give you directions, and provide you with all the useful information you need for your stay? Concierge service is certainly a perk, but now it isn’t only for hotels and it isn’t only face-to-face. When you provide your event attendees with access to Concierge EventBot you give them the information and resources they need for your event directly at their fingertips. Concierge EventBot is an incredible AI chatbot that is designed specifically for events, making it remarkably easy for event guests to stay in the know and up-to-date when it comes to schedules, agendas, event logistics, wifi, directions and parking, information on speakers and exhibits, and so much more. And since the concierge at a fancy hotel would never ask anything of you, Concierge EventBot isn’t going to ask your guests to download an app or learn anything new—everything can be communicated through text, Facebook Messenger, or other familiar messaging channels. It’s time to give your event attendees the luxury of information and communication, because being in the know feels good. And don’t they deserve it?
Crate. Hmm, sounds like one of those services that delivers a box of food or clothes to your door based on your online preferences, all so that you can be well-styled and well-fed without the work. Pretty close, but no cigar. The general idea, however, is spot on. Crate doesn’t offer food or clothes delivered in a box, but it does provide you with the perfect content for you to share via Twitter or across other social media using your Buffer account. To start, you create a (surprise, surprise) Crate. Your Crate is a collection of tags: keywords, blogs, domains, journalists, topics, and usernames that describe the kind of content you’re interested in sharing. Based on the tags in each of your Crates, you’ll be sent the best content that you ca share immediately or schedule for later. And with Crate doing all the searching and finding, you’ll have a lot more time to start getting s*#t done. Hallelujah!
Just like Ms. Julie, your 1st grade teacher, always said, “there’s an artist living in each of us,” and even if you never made it to art school and you wear a suit and work in an office and your moment to be the next Van Gogh has come and gone, it doesn’t mean you shouldn’t make things look good. And that, my friend, is where Crello steps in. Crello is a graphic design tool that gets your creative juices flowing and designing in no time at all.

When you’re looking to keep your audience engaged the last thing you want is a long pregnant pause as a microphone is slowly passed row by row to Mike in the back of the room. That time lapse kills audience interest and participation and only gives everyone ample time to wonder what cheese is being served and if there is an open bar at the reception. The obvious solution is to take the dead air out of the conference room. But how? Boy oh boy, have I got the answer to your riddle. Crowd Mics transforms each participant’s phone into a wireless microphone. That sounds too good to be true, but it gets even better. Crowd Mics also allows audience members to text questions and comments and answer live polls throughout the event. So even Shy Susan from accounting can get involved. Turns out she has some pretty swell ideas.

Don’t deny it, being fought after by a bunch of creatives from around the world sounds like a dream come true. If that’s the case then you can call me The Deliverer of Dreams, because I’m here to transform that creative fantasy into a very tangible and repeatable reality. DesignCrowd is basically the dating app of the design world, with the added perk of everyone wanting you from the get-go, and you chiseling away at the choices until you meet perfection. Here’s how it works: you post your design project with a brief description and budget in the DesignCrowd marketplace and before you know it you’ll have loads of designs from creatives all over the world headed your way.
