A comprehensive review of Eventmobi – a virtual event solution
Table of Contents

No one can deny that there’s a lot of event management platforms out there today, each with their own unique strengths and shortcomings. So, how do you choose which platform is the right one for you? Well, that’s where review articles, like this, come in handy. For this one, we’ll be looking at the popular virtual event platform, Eventmobi.

In this review, we’ll cover both what makes Eventmobi a good event management platform and what those potential “gotchas” are. We’ll also be comparing Eventmobi to another more favoured virtual event solution, Remo. 

So, let’s get started with what Eventmobi actually does for the modern event organizer.

{{table-of-contents}}

What is Eventmobi?

Eventmobi prides itself on being an industry disruptor, making major changes to virtual conferences, trade shows, and corporate events. The platform aims to serve as your expert partner, equipped with all the features required to make your event a dynamic and immersive experience that attendees will remember. 

When it comes to planning events, we all know it’s a team effort. But, sometimes it’s challenging to keep everyone on the same page and working towards the same goal. That’s where Eventmobi comes in – it’s main goal is to make sure everyone on the team is in the loop at all times. It’s that simple: they streamline an organziers workload and create lasting memories for attendees.

Eventmobi Pros & Cons

Every platform has its own strengths and weaknesses, and it’s up to each event organizer to carefully weigh these against each other based on their individual event needs. Usually, this can be a time-consuming process, having to watch countless demos, read through user reviews e.t.c. So, we thought we’d save you some time and compile a list of their strengths and weaknesses here for you to review.

Let’s dive into what makes Eventmobi great and where it may fall short:

Eventmobi Pros

  • User-Friendly Interface: Eventmobi is proud of its simple and easy-to-use interface for event attendees. The platform's design elements are intuitive, navigation is clear, and it’s easy to interact with event content, making it a breeze for attendees (even those who have never attended an event on Eventmobi). As an event organizer, we all know our attendees’ satisfaction is paramount to our event success.
  • Comprehensive Feature Set: With its extensive feature set covering every facet of event management, Eventmobi gives organizers what they need to plan spectacular events. Everything from easy registration and quick check-in to interactive real-time surveying, networking tools, and comprehensive post-event analytics. With all of this available right at an event organizers fingertips, Eventmobi optimizes the event planning process. It can also boost participant involvement by providing multiple networking focused feature options for organizers to leverage. 
  • Customizable Event Apps: Organizers may create fully customized event apps with Eventmobi to meet their specific needs and brand identity. Through the provision of theme, color, logo, and content customization options, event planners may provide guests a cohesive and fully branded event app experience. This gives the event an air of professionalism and encourages deeper contact and participation among attendees, especially if they recognize and trust the brand. 

Eventmobi Cons

  • Limited Customization Options: Despite offering a fully customizable event app, the rest of Eventmobi’s platform doesn’t share the same level of customization possible. Some past customers have mentioned the challenge to modify Eventmobi to match specific event branding or event requirements with their limited customization options. Usually, the best virtual event platforms, like Remo, will offer event hosts a wide variety of customization options like white labelling, branded virtual booths, and even customized venue spaces.
  • Occasional Technical Glitches: At the end of the day, Eventmobi is an online platform, so like others it is susceptible to technical glitches or downtime. Even though these problems are not overly frequent, they do still hurt the event organizers and attendees, especially if they occur during a live event. Nonetheless, we’d recommend selecting a virtual event platform that has contingency plans in place to support organizers if issues like these arise. For example, Remo has an oncall development team specifically prepared to handle urgent issues should they come up. They also offer live support 24/5 for both organizers and attendees to troubleshoot any technical errors.
  • Pricing Structure: For some budgets, especially those of smaller parties or organizations with fewer resources, Eventmobi's services can just be too costly. In comparison to alternative options, several clients have complained that the platform is far too expensive for the value it offers. When searching for an event platform, it’s important to keep your budget in mind. Look for a platform that offers flexible pricing plans as well, like Remo, so as you get closer to your event you can easily scale your event up or down as you need.
  • Steep Learning Curve: Although Eventmobi's interface is generally easy to use for attendees, the same cannot be said for event organizers. With all the features offered, also comes all the complexity to learn how to use them. Past customers have complained about the steep learning curve when using the platform’s more advanced functionality. This is worth noting, as it can introduce delays into your event planning process, especially if it’s your first time.
  • Accessibility: A lot of past customers mentioned the inconvenience of the Eventmobi app. To join the event, users have to first download the app and join through there. This proves challenging, especially if users have not downloaded the app in advance, or are in areas with poor wifi or data connection. This is one of the reasons why event organziers look for platforms that offer a browser-based solution, like Remo, so attendees don’t have to download or install anything.

Eventmobi Key Features

A range of effective tools from Eventmobi are available to improve attendee engagement and event planning. With configurable event applications, interactive session tools, networking opportunities, and more, Eventmobi gives event planners all they need to produce successful and unforgettable events. Let’s take a look at five of their most popular features:

1. Customizable Event Apps

Organizers can customize Eventmobi's event applications to fit their own branding and event requirements. Customization options range from changing themes, colors, and logos to adding branded content like speaker bios, agendas, and sponsor details. 

This degree of personalization guarantees that participants can quickly access and interact with the content that is most important to them, while also enhancing the event's overall professionalism. 

Whilst Remo does not offer a dedicated event app, it does still provide a range of customization options for hosts to utilize. These include small customizations like changing colors or adding logos to a fully bespoke virtual event space. This not only aids in boosting brand visibility, but works wonders in fully immersing and capturing your attendee’s attention throughout the event.

2. Interactive Session Features

Speaking about capturing audience attention, that’s where Eventmobi’s set of interactive session features comes handy. Features like, live polling, Q&A sessions, gamification, and more. With these features, Eventmobi gives event planners the tools they need to create memorable and captivating events that boost attendee engagement and participation. 

Like Eventmobi, Remo also recognizes the importance of providing interactive features to increase attendee participation. However, Remo goes the extra mile to also cater to speakers and presenters. Oftentimes at virtual presentations, speakers can feel very alone, because their audience is not physically in front of them, making it difficult to judge whether the presentation is landing or not. So, Remo offers dedicated features like live quizzes to measure understanding, real-time reactions to gauge attentiveness, and even immersive sound effects for auditory feedback.

3. Networking Tools

With the help of Eventmobi, attendees may interact and network through attendee profiles, messaging, and virtual meetups. These networking features enable users to locate and connect with like-minded individuals, industry colleagues, and potential partners, forging strong personal and business relationships. By providing networking options to attendees, Eventmobi enhances the overall experience of events by enabling them to expand their networks and engage in fruitful dialogues and collaborative efforts. 

In comparison, networking is at the heart of Remo’s platform. Known for its authentic approach to online networking, Remo has quickly become the go-to platform for any organizer wanting to incorporate networking at their virtual event. With their unique virtual tables concept, Remo achieves this by replicating the in-person experience as much as possible. On Remo, organizers can host simultaneous conversations of all sizes from 1-1 private discussions to large group gatherings of 50 people. Attendees are also free to move between these conversations as they please, allowing for those spontaneous hallway conversations you find at in-person events.

4. Real-Time Updates and Announcements

One of the best features organizers can include in their Eventmobi apps is real-time alerts. These are super useful at events to remind attendees of important sessions or deadlines for attendee challenges. After all, it’s easy to lose track of time when you’re enjoying an event! These alerts act as a way to focus attendee attention on what matters.

There are some important limitations to note though – whilst these alerts can be sent to segmented groups on the web app, on the mobile app they are just sent to all attendees. Also, on a web-app notifications are only seen when the user opens the app, whereas on a mobile app, you can enable push notifications (but remember not to overuse these as they can get annoying)

Remo too has an announcement feature, but in comparison to Eventmobi it’s more basic and straightforward. Event organizers can create text-based announcements that are sent to everyone in the event. That’s all - easy to learn and simple to understand.

5. Robust Analytics and Insights

You can’t measure event success without analytics, right?! Thanks to Eventmobi’s comprehensive analytics suite, that’s not much of an issue for organizers. With Eventmobi’s analytics dashboard, event organizers can monitor attendance, better understand their audience behaviour, and even assess the engagement levels of guests. Armed with all these insights and  data, event organizers can easily identify what worked, what didn’t, and make data-driven decisions to improve their future events.

This is something Remo offers its event organizers as well - a detailed set of post-event analytics, including attendance rate, engagement levels and even attendee demographics. However, beyond just post-event analytics, Remo offers options for guests to collect real-time data, for example its guest experience survey or content embeds. With this, hosts can easily measure attendee satisfaction during the event as well, so they can make adjustments on the fly if needed or even measure satisfaction over time.

Eventmobi Pricing

Now that you’ve got a detailed overview of what Eventmobi offers (and what it lacks), let’s move on to one of the most important factors to consider - pricing.

Eventmobi provides flexible pricing options tailored to accommodate a variety of event needs and budgets. Their packages and a la carte event technology and production services ensure that organizers can select and pay for only what they require.

Event App and Virtual & Hybrid Event Platform: This covers the basic event platform for your virtual or hybrid event.

  • Single Event Package: Starts at USD$3,500 per event
  • Unlimited Events Package: Starts at USD$9,000 per year (includes unlimited admins, speakers, and exhibitors)

Registration, Website & Ticketing Platform: This package gives access to all of Eventmobi’s registration functionality, like branded websites, ticketing, and custom registration forms.

  • Single Event: Starts at USD$2,500 per event
  • Unlimited Events: Starts at USD$7,500 per year

It’s important to note that these rates are only an estimate and could change based on the scope, length, and extra services that you require for your event. For an accurate estimate, organizers can fill out Eventmobi's pricing form to book a meeting with their team and discuss pricing options.

As mentioned above, past customers have found Eventmobi to be on the most expensive side of virtual event platforms. In comparison, Remo’s virtual event platform, which offers much of the same functionality, starts at only USD$380 per month for unlimited events or USD$900 for single events. Remo also keeps its pricing simple, by offering a lot of their features, like registration and ticketing, to all plans. That way, the actual platform cost is just a result of the number of attendees (not registrations) and your event duration. Like Eventmobi though, you do need to book a short call with one of our product experts to discuss your event needs and tailor a plan that fits your requirements and your budget.

Final Verdict

In this review, we’ve taken a detailed look at the Eventmobi platform - its strengths, its potential shortcomings, its most popular features, and how it compares to popular competitors, like Remo. Whilst Eventmobi offers a dependable solution for event organizers, its limited customization and lack of convenience may prove a challenge for some. Alternatively, the unique functionality of Event Apps may be just what you’re looking for when planning your next event, in which case Eventmobi may rise above all other platforms in that regard.

Ultimately, the decision of which platform to use depends on what aspects of your event are important to you. For example, if you’re looking for a comprehensive event management tool, Eventmobi may be the better option. However, if you’re looking for an engagement-driven, customizable virtual event space with authentic networking, Remo would be a perfect fit. Also, remember to consider which platform better fits your budget – Eventmobi is far more expensive than Remo, so it simply may be out of your budget. Usually, the virtual event platform makes up the most of your event budget, so you have to be sure you’re spending it on the right platform that will give you the most value in return.

Remo: Eventmobi’s Better Alternative

Remo offers an innovative way to host events that merges the best of in-person and virtual events, like no other platform does. Its smooth and realistic user interface guarantees a meaningful and captivating event experience for attendees, no matter where they are. Attendees are given the freedom to network and engage with whomever they please, just like they would at a physical event. Whilst, event organizers are given the flexibility to host events in whatever way they wish to. Remo is the best option for any event organizer looking to create an event that’s immersive, memorable and truly engaging.

Why Remo Stands Out

  • Immersive Networking: Remo places a higher value on creating genuine networking opportunities for attendees than any other virtual event platform, including Eventmobi. Each Remo event space comes with a series of virtual tables (like breakout rooms, but more visual) that attendees can freely move between. These tables can be 1-1 meetings or large group discussions, whatever type of conversations the organizer wants to encourage. With free movement, attendees are able to connect and engage with one another on a deeper level without the pressure of “forced networking”.
  • Customizable Solution: While Eventmobi offers customization on just their event app, Remo lets organizers customize their entire event. This can be as small as changing the color or adding a logo to designing a fully bespoke floor plan (virtual event venue). Organizers have full freedom to create whatever space they please - from a beachside cafe to a meeting room in outer space; they can even recreate a well-known physical location for some nostalgia. More than that, Remo also offers the ability to fully whitelabel the platform for the ultimate branded experience.
  • Easy to use: Like Eventmobi, Remo’s interface is intuitive for guests to navigate, ensuring a seamless experience for them on the platform. However, unlike Eventmobi, Remo’s interface for event organizers to create and manage events is also relatively simple to use. Of course, given the range of features there is still a learning curve, especially the first time you host an event, but Remo also has a dedicated support team available 24/5 to answer questions and 50+ how-to articles available. Also, it’s important to note that Remo is a browser-based platform, so attendees don’t need to install or download anything in advance in order to join (but it does still require a good internet connection for an enjoyable experience).

Frequently Asked Questions

1. Can I use Eventmobi to manage my event registration and ticket sales for multiple events at once?

Indeed, for both Eventmobi and Remo, you can host multiple events at once, each with its own unique registration and tickets. For Eventmobi though, this is only possible if you are on their Unlimited Events plan, and you should also have opted for their Registration, Website & Ticketing Platform plan as well. Conversely on Remo, unlimited events as well as registration & ticketing are available on all plans.

2. Can I use Eventmobi to manage my event's schedule and speakers?

Indeed, Eventmobi has a tool that lets you manage the speakers and scheduling for your event. The schedule of your event can be updated with speakers and sessions, as well as information on the speakers' bios session titles, and duration. The program also lets you manage speaker availability and scheduling conflicts, as well as set session hours and rooms for each session.

Remo opts for a simpler approach by letting you just set an agenda for your event. In the agenda you can highlight which sessions will happen when, and who your speakers will be. This information can also be included in your Event Description on your event registration page.

3. How does Eventmobi handle event customization?

Beyond customizing the event app, past users have noted Eventmobi’s lack of customization options. Within the app, it seems organizers can customize aspects like the color, theme, or logo. If they opt for their own event app, then they also get to control how the app works and what information attendees see.

On the other hand, Remo is all about customization opportunities. From changing simple things like colors or adding your logo, to fully customizing the entire virtual event venue to fully immerse your audience into an experience. If customization is important to you and your events, we’d highly recommend checking out Remo, above other virtual event platforms.

4. What support does Eventmobi offer customers?

Reviews for both Eventmobi and Remo mention customer support being excellent. Both platforms offer a wide range of support channels like chat, email, and a comprehensive help center. Remo goes a step forward though when it comes to troubleshooting issues by offering services like live technical support, where a dedicated Remo representative will attend your event and help troubleshoot with any guests that face technical issues in real-time.
