Comic-Con International is a celebrated pop culture convention that draws over 130,000 self-professed fans who temporarily escape reality to immerse themselves in all things comics, games, arts, movies and more. It’s where the Avengers cast may show up and attendees can take in panels featuring cast members from shows such as “Game of Thrones,” “Mr. Robot” and “The Walking Dead.”
This past summer Eventbasers Felix, Tom and Scott chose Comic-Con in San Diego as their Ticket to Ride. When you’ve been with Eventbase for a year, you get a Ticket to Ride for an event of your choice that we’ve developed the app for, giving you a chance to see our apps and your work in action. When asked why he chose Comic-Con Felix, an Implementation Lead, spoke for them all when he said, “It’s Comic-Con!! Games, film, TV show panels…” Enough said.
Not only did the three of them enjoy crazy Pokémon Go moments and take in great events such as the “Silicon Valley” and “Last Man on Earth” panels, but they also came back with great insight into using Eventbase apps in the exact environment and scope they’re designed for.
Tom, a Sales Development Representative, found that “attending Comic-Con and using our Eventbase app as an attendee gave me a much better understanding of how I would position our solution in terms of complexity, size, and audience.”
For Scott, a Technical Production Specialist, it was his first time using one of our apps in real life and it “gave me insight into the strengths of the app and opportunities to improve it.”
Helping 130,000 people manage their schedules and plans at an event may be a tall order, but our team is up for it!
