Share your events with your social network

Along with the great new functionality that was launched last week for the EventElephant system, we have one more fantastic update that will make it even easier for you to sell out your events.

A new tool in the
EventElephant system lets you instantly share your event with your social network including Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, MySpace and Bebo.

When you click on the relevant icon, an update about your event will be published on to your social networking page and with a link back to the event registration web page - meaning your whole personal network will be able to view and book directly on to your event. Make sure you check it out today!

Don’t forget that you can also follow EventElephant on Twitter by

Summer release – lots of new tools, lots of new upgrades

This week saw the launch of a new bunch of updates to the EventElephant system.

At EventElephant we’re committed to making the event organiser’s life as hassle-free as possible. That’s why we’re continually updating EventElephant. We release literally dozens of functionality enhancements every month. A nip here. A tuck there. If it makes EventElephant faster, easier, or more enjoyable to use, we’ll do it. Many of the updates we release are based on the feedback we receive from organisers themselves.

The great new functionality and tools are available for you to use immediately and will make creating your registration pages and managing your event even easier! For a full list of the updates click here. Here are some of the highlights;

Copy you existing events
When you are creating a new event registration page you will have the opportunity to copy most of the details from an existing or previous event. This will save you precious time when trying to duplicate an event.

Preview your event as you go along
As you are creating your event in the ‘create an event’ wizard you will now be able to view what you are creating as you create it. When you click the ‘Preview’ button a new window will open allowing you to visualise how your event registration page looks each time that you add text, a banner/logo or an image.

Waiting lists for sold out events
When tickets have been sold out for your event the system will automatically start to compile a waiting list of potential attendees.

Attendees who try to book tickets only to find them sold out will be asked if they want to join the waiting list for when more tickets are released by the organiser.

New RSVP functionality for organisers
Organisers will be able to give attendees the option of responding to an invite to attend their event with a Yes/No or a Maybe. If you have chosen to use the RSVP functionality then a new RSVP report will be available for your event in the Event Control Area. The report will present a list of potential attendees who have declined your invitation or who are as yet unsure about attending.

If you would like to know about future updates to the system please subscribe to the EventElephant Blog.

What a Pair! Hollywood Celebrities sing for Breast Cancer

'WHAT A PAIR!' is an annual celebration of duets by Hollywood icons to benefit breast cancer research. The annual event, now in it’s seventh year, has raised over $2 million dollars towards breast cancer research. Proceeds from the Los Angeles show will go to the Breast Centre at the John Wayne Cancer Institute at St. John's Health Centre.

The show attracts huge Hollywood stars and for one night only they can let their hair down and show their support for this great charity by collaborating and singing famous duets. Artists who have performed in past "What A Pair!" events since 2002 including Jamie Lee-Curtis, Marianne Jean-Baptiste, Taylor Dane, Jackie DeShannon, Joely Fisher, Sally Kellerman, Faith Prince, Lea Salonga, Lea Thompson, Nia Vardalos, Marg Helgenberger and Jorja Fox from CSI Vegas, will unite with new participants to continue the tradition.

This year's event is taking place on September 26, 2009 at Santa Monica's new Broad Stage Theatre. To read more about the event and to purchase tickets visit
