10 Best Event Management Software & Planning Tools Compared
Life is a series of events. Not all events must be huge in-person events in crowded exhibition halls. These days more events are going online. Otherwise almost all events are hybrid to a degree. Hybrid events combine live and virtual elements.
This article compares 10 good event planning software solutions. We look at which software is best for different event sizes, kinds and industries. Some are great for large live events. Others are better for small online events.
The starting prices for these platforms are listed when available. Most event management software has custom prices. Prices are based on the size, scale, and duration of the event. Event organizers can get a quote by contacting the vendors through their websites.
Event Management is the leading peer-reviewed international journal for the study and analysis of events and festivals, meeting the research and educational needs of this rapidly growing industry for more than 20 years.
- Publish high-quality interdisciplinary event studies work and therefore promote a broad spectrum of theoretical perspectives from management and organizational studies to sociology and social science.
- Encourage the study of all kinds of physical, digital, and hybrid events from small- to large-scale cultural and sporting events, festivals, meetings, conventions, exhibitions, to expositions, across a range of geographical and cultural contexts.
- Actively support authors to take a critical perspective concerning the power and potential of events as a force for social, economic, and environmental good, while challenging where events can do better and make a positive contribution to society.
- Promote bold, interesting, relevant research problems and questions. Examples include why events play a key role for individual and collective transformational experiences; how social movements like #BlackLivesMatter and #Metoo can be advanced by attaching to events like the Academy Awards; through to the way large-scale events are leveraged for urban regeneration and community development.
- Believe research insights are integral to high-quality learning and teaching and we encourage all authors to transform manuscript into a set of Event Management branded PowerPoint slides for colleagues to integrate into research informed and hybrid teaching approaches. Where provided by authors, slides will feature alongside each published manuscript for ease. All subscribing organizations and authors will have access to this library of learning and teaching content.
Event Management is governed by a high-quality editorial board consisting of international leading experts across a range of disciplines and fields, including events, tourism, sport, hospitality, to business studies (see “Editorial board” tab).
STEP 1: All manuscripts submitted to Event Management will go through a rigorous screening process by either the Editor-in-Chief or Deputy Editors to be desk rejected or progressed to one of 40+ Associate Editors who handle the review process.
STEP 2: An Associate Editor reviews the manuscript and decides whether to progress or rejected. If progressed, 2-3 members of the Editorial Advisory Board or those with appropriate expertise are invited to review with an average 2-3 rounds of peer review. Authors have 8 weeks to revise and resubmit for each round of peer review.
STEP 3: Toward the end of peer review the Associate Editor recommends a final decision to the Editor-in-Chief or Deputy Editor who makes the final decision and provides final constructive feedback where appropriate.
STEP 4: Manuscripts accepted are swiftly uploaded to our “Fast Track” system with a DOI while our editorial assistants work with authors to deal with author queries before final manuscripts are made available. FINAL PUBLISHED ARTICLES WILL BE MADE AVAILABLE AS FREE ACCESS (at no charge) ON INGENTA CONNECT FOR A PERIOD OF 15 DAYS and will be actively promoted by our Social Media Editor who works with authors to create a short tweet and author video alongside free links to promote colleagues’ work, across our Twitter and LinkedIn sites. (After the 15 days manuscripts will only be available to subscribers, unless the author has paid for the Open Access option.)

How to Choose the Top Event Management Company for You
Knowing the best event managers in the industry doesn’t mean you’ll magically find the perfect fit. To help you with your choice, we have outlined four actionable tips to guide you through the shortlisting process, helping you ultimately find the right agency for your needs.
Establish Your Goals
Prior to searching for the best event management firm, you should establish your goals and objectives. Think about the purpose of your event — why you organize it in the first place, your goals, the main things you want your attendees to remember, and so on.
Once you define these, you will get a clearer idea about the theme and message of your event. When establishing your goals, consider how they fit in your overall marketing strategy and the mission statement of your brand. Bonus tip: make your goals SMART (Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic, Time-based).
Services You Need
Event management blends many parts that function together. Make sure to weed out the event management companies that can’t address your needs. Do you want to source speakers yourself or do you need a company to take care of this? Will you organize the catering or do you plan on enlisting the agency’s help on that? These are just a few of the questions you’ll have to ask yourself if you want to further narrow down the choice of the best event management companies for you.
Define a Budget
Next, you need to set up a realistic budget. With the top events companies, there usually isn’t a one-size-fits-all option. This means that the final price will be determined based on what you need from the agency. Do you want them to find a venue, take care of the catering, and provide you with an end-to-end marketing service? You’ll have to pay a fee for all of these.
Meet In Person
Following this short guide should leave you with up to three event management companies. To make the final choice, consider meeting each supplier face to face to assess whether the agency is a good cultural fit.
Getting ahead of the competition is essential, and we are here to deliver the best service providers that can get you to where you want to go. To connect businesses with experienced professionals and introduce them to proven software solutions, we perform an extensive analysis and review based on custom-tailored evaluation methodologies uniquely devised for each service or software type.
The benefits of SIEM
Regardless of how large or small your organization may be, taking proactive steps to monitor for and mitigate IT security risks is essential. SIEM solutions benefit enterprises in a variety of ways and have become a significant component in streamlining security workflows. Some of the benefits include:
Advanced real-time threat recognition
SIEM active monitoring solutions across your entire infrastructure significantly reduces the lead time required to identify and react to potential network threats and vulnerabilities, helping to strengthen security posture as the organization scales.
Regulatory compliance auditing
SIEM solutions enable centralized compliance auditing and reporting across an entire business infrastructure. Advanced automation streamlines the collection and analysis of system logs and security events to reduce internal resource utilization while meeting strict compliance reporting standards.
Today’s next-gen SIEM solutions integrate with powerful Security Orchestration, Automation and Response (SOAR) capabilities, saving time and resources for IT teams as they manage business security. Using deep machine learning that automatically adapts to network behavior, these solutions can handle complex threat identification and incident response protocols in significantly less time than physical teams.
Improved organizational efficiency
Because of the improved visibility of IT environments that it provides, SIEM can be an essential driver of improving interdepartmental efficiencies. With a single, unified view of system data and integrated SOAR, teams can communicate and collaborate efficiently when responding to perceived events and security incidents.
Detecting Advanced and Unknown Threats
Considering how quickly the cybersecurity landscape changes, organizations need to be able to rely on solutions that can detect and respond to both known and unknown security threats. Using integrated threat intelligence feeds and AI technology, SIEM solutions can successfully mitigate against modern-day security breaches such as:
- Insider threats – Security vulnerabilities or attacks that originate from individuals with authorized access to company networks and digital assets. These attacks could be the result of compromised credentials.
- Phishing attacks – Social engineering attacks masquerading as trusted entities, often used to steal user data, login credentials, financial information, or other sensitive business information.
- SQL Injections – Malicious code executed via a compromised webpage or application designed to bypass security measures and add, modify, or delete records in an SQL database.
- DDoS Attacks – A Distributed-Denial-of-Service (DDoS) attack designed to bombard networks and systems with unmanageable levels of traffic, degrading performance of websites and servers until they are unusable.
- Data exfiltration – Data theft or extrusion is commonly achieved by taking advantage of common or easy-to-crack passwords on network assets, or through the use of an Advanced Persistent Threat, or APT.
Conducting Forensic Investigations
SIEM solutions are ideal for conducting digital forensic investigations once a security incident occurs. SIEM solutions allow organizations to efficiently collect and analyze log data from all of their digital assets in one place. This gives them the ability to recreate past incidents or analyze new ones to investigate suspicious activity and implement more effective security processes.
Assessing and Reporting on Compliance
Compliance auditing and reporting is both a necessary and challenging task for many organizations. SIEM solutions dramatically reduce the resource expenditures required to manage this process by providing real-time audits and on-demand reporting of regulatory compliance whenever needed.
Monitoring Users and Applications
With the rise in popularity of remote workforces, SaaS applications and BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) policies, organizations need the level of visibility necessary to mitigate network risks from outside the traditional network perimeter. SIEM solutions track all network activity across all users, devices, and applications, significantly improving transparency across the entire infrastructure and detecting threats regardless of where digital assets and services are being accessed.

Garnish is one of the leading event management companies in the USA. It offers services for corporate organizations, ensuring continued growth. They understand that events can be crucial to success, and offer a full range of services from site selection, through onsite support to event survey management. See profile
To compile the list, we devised a custom evaluation methodology based on a multifactor analysis. Our assessment focused on aspects such as customer satisfaction, expertise, experience, and creativity. We also explored the types of services they offer and whether they focus on working with organizations of a specific size or niche.
Before the actual evaluation, we classify the event management firms, verifying if they specialize in a certain niche. Many of them excel at corporate meetings or conference planning, while others shine in social events and parties.
We also check if they work with businesses of a certain size. As with the business niche, some agencies prefer catering to small to medium-sized businesses or individuals, while others plan events exclusively for enterprises and big corporations.
In an attempt to get a piece of the pie, almost anyone that has organized a friend’s party tends to call themselves an event manager. Our job is to weed out these and put together a list of the best industry professionals with the experience to back their claims. To establish a company’s experience, we look at its portfolio and assess the following:
How Well Does the Event Tell the Client’s Story?
Your event attendees need to feel your story in every element of the event. This means that the prospective event management firm should understand your brand, along with your goals and expectations to tell your story with the event they organize.
What Was Unique About the Event?
A successful event is a memorable event. And for an event to be memorable, it needs to be unique. That’s the next thing we look for when assessing an agency’s projects. How unique are they? How does that uniqueness align with the client’s brand and goals?
Do the Events Look Appealing?
Every successful event management company has a variety of photos and videos to showcase its portfolio. It’s important that the events look appealing because the visual stimulus is usually what determines the “feel” of the event. If your event is appealing, chances are it will positively influence your brand authority.
Did Attendees Get What They Needed?
Finally, we check whether the agency managed to successfully address the needs of the attendees. For example, we take note of how well the agency personalized the experience, whether they streamlined the check-in process, the event guide, networking rooms (if needed), etc.
Certifications & Accolades
We also consider any certifications that the event management agency has acquired over the years. They signify that the outfit knows the ins and outs of event planning and has the right experience. Some popular industry credentials are Certified Meeting Professional (CMP), Certified Special Events Professional (CSEP), and Digital Event Strategist (DES).
At this point, we have filtered the agencies based on their experience and client satisfaction. Those that have passed our initial evaluation stage are subjected to an in-depth examination that starts with assessing creativity. We evaluate that by considering their past work and reaching out to the event planner for an initial interview. The best event management agencies will have a creative team that generates ideas and is ready to bring the client’s vision to life. Creativity also helps with problem-solving which can influence the successful outcome of the event.
While assessing the abovementioned points based on the past work of the event companies, there is also the other side — the clients. We look beyond the testimonials on the agency’s site, and check reviews on third-party directories, social media, and Google to verify their reputation.
Client reviews suggest whether the agency excels in particular areas, what problems (if any) the clients faced, whether the issues were resolved, and more. If needed, we reach out to clients and talk about what they liked or didn’t like when working with the specific agency, how satisfied they were, and whether they would recommend the outfit.
Any top event management company would know the importance of having a project manager on board. This role is essential in the organization phase since the agency will need to take care of different tasks including negotiation with rental vendors, meeting prospective guest speakers, exploring entertainment options, organizing catering, selecting and booking a venue, etc. This is just for a single event so if the company handles multiple orders, we want to make sure they have the ability to multitask, and, if need be, to prioritize and focus on specific tasks.
