How do my event guests join the app?
All you need to do is send a hyperlink to your guests which contains a download button to your event. When they press the download button on their smartphone or any web browser, the app will automatically join them to your event. The app is free to all guests and contains a simple sign-up process.
When should I send out the invite link?
We recommend twice, 1 month before your event starts and 24 hours before. Your guests will then have the chance to join the pre-event conversation.
What is Hub Feed and do I need it for my event?
Hub Feed is a great way to boost guest engagement. You place the Feed on any big screen at your event, and guests can post pictures and videos directly to it. It's a safe, closed off way for you / all your guests to share and have fun - without the prying eyes of the outside world.
How do Broadcasts work and don't they become a nuisance after a while?
Our location fingerprinting filters broadcasts by knowing when that user is physically at your event. When they are, they will receive all messages from all users, however when they are not they will only receive the most vital alerts. This means they don't get overloaded with messages.
Why can people only post into the Hub Story when they are physically at my event?
The Hub Story is reserved for people on-site as the Hub Story is the best way to show everyone what's happening in the moment at your event. After your event has ended, people can watch your event feed highlights from start to finish - you can even share this feed on your external channels too.
What are Communities and how do they work?
Like WhatsApp groups. They are group chats - instant message conversations shared between multiple people. Anyone at your event can create a community based on any topic (or sub-topic) to do with your event. Only people who have joined your event are able to create, see or participate in your event's communities.
What are the limitations of Communities?
There is no limit to how many people can join a community, the only limit is how many user's will be notified of new messages. Since communities have grown to thousands of users in the past, it is impractical to notify every single user of every single message. As a work-around, people will receive 5 new message notifications for each community they joined, unless they engage with that community in some way. Users can mute or leave a community at any time.
What is the purpose of Communities?
That's a deep question. The short answer is to help your guests find others at your event that they want to meet and build a deeper connection with. E.g. at a music conference, people who enjoy rock music can instantly meet everyone else who shares that passion.
How long will the app stay active?
Based on the usage tier you have selected, the app will stay active for 3,6 or 12 months. This can be extended by repurchasing HeyHub for your next event, or adding additional months of usage.
How can I monetise my event through HeyHub? How is the process different from other services?
The main difference is that HeyHub is a social platform so HeyHub boasts an average engagement rate of 60% of all event attendees signing up to the app. This additional engagement is the perfect captive audience for your sponsors, who can send full screen photo / video based ads / promotions directly to your guests. HeyHub even goes a step further, sponsors can even display their ads on the Hub Feed (on the big screen) - smoothly mixed in with your other event based content.

What are the benefits of the Experience Edition?
