REDMOND, Wash., Aug. 4, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Tagboard, the leading innovative social media discovery and display platform, announced today that it has partnered with Eventbrite, the global marketplace for live experiences, to help event organizers easily leverage social media before, during, and after their events.
Eventbrite, which helps organizers manage over 1.5 million events per year, now offers a Tagboard extension directly in the Eventbrite management dashboard. With this partnership, creating and powering a hashtag campaign with Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, and other social media platforms for an event is an integrated process.
"Some of the most successful events in Eventbrite's marketplace are using social channels to not only communicate their message, but to coordinate and promote the attendee conversation around their event," said Dylan Serota, head of partnerships at Eventbrite. "This integration will allow all our event organizers to take a proactive role in owning their event hashtag."
Strategically adding an official hashtag to an event promotes increased social engagement and drives awareness. The Tagboard extension for Eventbrite offers a proven solution to organizers who are looking for new and innovative ways to engage their audiences from the moment they start promoting ticket sales.
"Hashtags are perfect for events because they empower the community to join together in a unified conversation which goes far beyond the walls of the event," said Josh Decker, CEO of Tagboard. "By using Tagboard and a clear call to action, we have seen a direct increase in engagement by more than 10x. With this partnership and product integration, we're thrilled to provide event organizers all over the world with best-in-class tools for social media integration for their events."
VloggerFair, an annual event that brings the top vloggers, with millions of online followers, together for two days every summer in Seattle, utilizes both Tagboard and Eventbrite.
"This integration now makes it so easy for us to create social hype within our community," said Lynn Edwards, who produces over 40 events a year as owner of Proper Planning. "The VloggerFair audience loves to see themselves in lights. Adding Tagboard to our event had an immediate effect on our social buzz which resulted in increased awareness and ticket sales."
