From your basic ticketing and organisational event apps, to the professional, boutique tech facilities that can take your event to the next level, apps are changing the event-planning game.

Here are five of the best.

1. Eventbrite

By creating an event profile on Eventbrite, you can promote the event, sell tickets and let people gain entry, securely, without needing to print anything off.

It's the key to making any event work.

2. Super Planner

Superplanner has all sorts of incredibly handy tools, like a quick VAT calculator, drinks budgeter, and guides to different sorts of place settings.

An indispensible assistant that fits in your pocket.

3. HeyTell

If you're orchestrating a large-scale event, and you have a team, you need a way of contacting each other instantly and seamlessly.

Heytell will turn your phone into a walkie-talkie! Turn back the clock and turn up the convenience.

4. Doubledutch

Now we're getting high-tech.

Doubledutch is an app for high-production events, that allows attendees to conduct surverys, network with relevant guests, organise their agenda and integrate their social media accounts in one event profile.

Every conference planner should be thinking about using this app.

5. Eventmobi

And finally, the be-all-and-end-all of event-tech: your own app for your event.

This is the option offered by Eventmobi, which can construct an app that your attendees can download that is completely customised and personalised for your event.

This can strengthen sponsorship pitches, offer games for guests, crucial data and analytics for you, and private in-app chat for everybody. It's the definitive tech solution for trade shows, conferences and large-scale events.

We hope you found our list useful, and don't forget that when it comes to venue-hire, there's only one place you should go.
