About Us

The best inventions are always borne from a true necessity… our research and found that Non Profit Events and Festivals had many issues that hampered their efficiencies and lowered their bottom line fundraising efforts. These issues mainly dealt with the manual processing of paperwork, reports, workforce management, vendors and online ticket sales. So, from this research we developed a system of web-based modules that enable charitable events to drastically cut the man-hours needed to produce a successful event by streamlining the following areas:

  • Ticketing Sales and Redemptions
  • Registrations and Signups for all types of Events
  • Vendor and Exhibitor Applications, Vetting, Positioning and Payments
  • Artist, Band, Parade Registrations Scheduling and Placement
  • Volunteers Registrations, Communication and Scheduling
  • Sponsor Signups, Management
  • Ad Placements on your Website and Tickets
  • Donation Collections and Tracking
  • Silent Auctions
  • Donation Collections, Competitions and Tracking
  • Social Media Management
  • Website and Content Management
  • Point Of Sale
  • Merchandise eCommerce

Features at a Glance

Ticket Management

Simple, Efficient, Print-at-Home Ticketing will draw large crowds to your Event, but large crowds can be a bigger challenge to manage. Event Essential’s online ticketing not only lowers mounting ticketing costs as your Event grows, but makes “gate management” manageable!

Volunteer Management

Volunteers are a vital component for the success of an Event, which can save companies thousands of dollars on their Event budget. The number and quality of your volunteers can also make or break your Event. The more volunteers you have, the better customer service you provide at your Event and hence, more repeat attendance year after year!

More Info

Exhibitor/Vendor Management

Vendors and Exhibitors always weigh the benefits versus the cost of any Event they attend. How will their Brand be presented at your Event? What type of marketing opportunities will attract them to exhibit at your Event? These are only a handful of important questions an Event Planner needs to answer not only to attract a vendor or exhibitor, but give them a reason to attend year after year.

Sponsorships

Sponsorships are a driving force behind any successful Event. Sponsors generate working capital for your Event, create Event buzz and promote awareness among participating exhibitors and vendors. Sponsorships can add hundreds, even thousands of dollars to offset event marketing and promotion costs, however, donors must see benefit to their investment.

Hardley Strictly Bluegrass

I can’t tell you how much better my life has been now that we’ve got Event Essentials for Hardly Strictly Bluegrass. This time last year I was pulling my hair out and losing sleep and now I’m just casually scheduling folks while enjoying a coffee. It’s incredible.

Vicki

Sherman Oaks Chamber

Our new website and administrative site saved us hours and hours of manual work. We were able to keep track of our vendors online, create excel spreadsheets to sort vendors and analyze results and even send ad-hoc emails (both mass ones and ones to just certain kinds of vendors) quickly and easily. We were able to update information in real time. Whether we had a last minute change on the stage, a new sponsor or a community update, it was easy to log-on and keep our website accurate. We even created a great photo gallery of our event – loading the hundreds of photos took about 5 minutes!

Case Study

Key to a successful event

Thousand Oak Brew Fest

When our Kiwanis Club first discussed our needs with Event Essentials the solution sounded like it was too good to be true. However, when all was said and done, it was way better than we had hoped for. Our Vendors found the system easy to use and had no issues registering with it. Our Kiwanis Club received more complete information, so we could make quicker decisions on them attending the event and sending them event updates .

The ticketing and check-in processes were amazingly easy. The system streamlined our check-in process allowing us to check-in over 700 attendees in less than an hour. We had hundreds of compliments on “our” system.

Thank you again for the excellent customer service, support and especially the marketing help with our event.

BrewFest Co-Chair
