New Interactive Floor Plan Builder for In-Person and Hybrid Events!

New Interactive Floor Plan Builder for In-Person and Hybrid Events!

Events are Coming Back In-Person, and PheedLoop’s Ready!

All event professionals have heard for many months from event technology providers is the endless sales pitch that virtual events are the future, and more recently, the fuzzy concept of hybrid events. Virtual and hybrid events are definitely a big part of the future and come with countless advantages, but tides are turning, mass vaccinations are underway, events are planning for on-site experiences again. The good news is, PheedLoop is too, and we’re going way beyond the basics!

The reality is becoming increasingly obvious for virtual event tech companies - in-person events are hard! Simply streaming content or video calling between attendees isn’t enough, there are countless logistical elements involved in planning in-person events.

If your goal is to invest long-term in a true end-to-end event management platform, PheedLoop’s going to be your best bet. Our platform and team has been powering in-person events for years and thousands of virtual events too, so we know what it takes.

Over the next weeks and months, you’re going to see PheedLoop announce many refreshed in-person event products that we’ve been updating behind the scenes over the course of the pandemic, hidden from view as we unleashed countless virtual event products. Get ready for some amazing updates for in-person events!

New Interactive Floor Plan Builder

One differentiator among many PheedLoop has traditionally had in its offering for events is the ability to implement interactive floor plans allowing for embeddable widgets, live booth selection, navigation, and more. Particularly useful for trade shows.

We’ve always touted how self-serve the PheedLoop platform is, but one aspect of it that certainly wasn’t was the design and implementation of interactive floor plans. It required event planners to send us their floor plans, and our designers re-rendering them in an interactive format. It often required a lot of back and forth, updates, and manual iteration, and although we realize that’s the status quo in our industry, it didn’t align well with our approach to letting event planners take maximum control of their events.

Well, that’s now all a thing of the past. Our new floor plan builder is now live, and it is a tool that allows you to create interactive floor plans all on your own!

The new floor plan builder is in beta mode right now, available for anyone to use! Even if you don’t have the interactive floor plan power-up, you can use the floor plan builder to create and export floor plans as images for external use. With the power-up, the floor plan is automatically embedded and integrated into all the different portals your offers and fits right into your workflows (e.g. booth selection for exhibit sales, navigation in the mobile app, etc.)
