Square Meal set up and sell out their event in record time thanks to EventElephant

Earlier this year, UK events company Square Meal approached EventElephant to help them build a registration website for their upcoming ‘Altitude 360’ event in London. The event was to celebrate the launch of Altitude 360’s new event space including the brand new River Room, plus an exclusive first view of the newly expanded panoramic space with 360 views of the London skyline. Time was short as they needed to get invitations sent out straight away as well as start taking bookings for the event. This is where EventElephant stepped in.

Simon Anderson, Marketing Executive for Square Meal commented ‘I've used several other online attendee management systems in the past, but always been disappointed - EventElephant was an entirely different experience. We didn't have a great deal of time to market the event and needed to set up an online registration page immediately - to my relief, the EventElephant set-up process was extremely user-friendly, and the site was up and running in a matter of hours’.

Not only were Square Meal able to set up their event in a very short space of time, they managed to sell out their event in record time also. To do this they used the simple marketing tools available to all organiser within the system.

Simon said ‘The system offers a wide range of layout, graphic and text options, so creating a bespoke site is incredibly simple. You certainly don't need to be a web genius to produce an eye-catching website, and the EventElephant team are always happy to help out over the phone.’

Square Meal are already planning their next event using EventElephant due to the massive success of ‘Altitude 360’. Simon added ‘The registration process for our event went very smoothly and we even surpassed our original target number of registrants. To any marketers frustrated with their current attendee management systems, I would certainly recommend EventElephant’.
