Tired of arbitrary ticketing fees and ineffective check-in processes, we started Guestsnow to help solve some longstanding issues experienced first-hand in the event world. We're excited to see our founder's journey featured on Mixmag, which has benefited firsthand from Guestsnow's features at their The Lab NYC events.
Guestsnow has a new feature: ticketing! You can now sell tickets through our event management platform, in addition to managing guest lists, check-ins and VIPs. Get all the details on our blog.

When the king of energy comes to you to help organize one of their parties, you better be at the top of your game to make sure everything goes without a hitch. Red Bull has worked with Guestsnow for several of their events, including Club James earlier this year, and one of their favorite features is our multiple-level access to guest list management.
They used it again for the Red Bull Breakfast Club event they hosted at Life Is Beautiful this September. If you’re not familiar, Life Is Beautiful is an annual music/art/culinary festival in downtown Las Vegas that started in 2013. This year’s festivities were headlined by acts like Chance the Rapper, Gorillaz, Muse, Lorde and featured street artists and food installations to delight every palate.
For their event, Red Bull asked their production company, GRIT NY, to use Guestsnow for check-in. All collaborators, from admins to event managers across GRIT and Red Bull, had access to the app, allowing everyone involved to easily add guests to the list before and during the event. Red Bull oversaw app permissions so that for example check-in staff would only be authorized to check guests in without affecting the list.
Other useful Guestsnow features Red Bull enjoyed include our RSVP invitations, QR Code scans and offline mode. The event was a hit with the 900+ guests and Red Bull, and we look forward to working with them again!

Let's embrace it and Ditch the Clipboard. Here are 7 ways event tech & Guestsnow can change your life for the better.
Events are stressful; that’s a given. The more you plan ahead, the better event day will go -- also pretty straightforward. So how can you make sure your check-in line moves quickly and your heart rate... does not? One answer: Guestsnow.
With a collection of carefully created features, Guestsnow ensures that your pre-event to-do list gets checked off quickly and seamlessly so that your day-of tasks stay at a minimum. Here are few tools you should never go without:
Promoter Access to Guest Lists
Stop the madness of adding names last minute to your guest list, or worse, during the event itself. Guestsnow allows you to give Promoter Access to collaborators so that they can take the onus of adding their own guests to your list. Of course, you’re still in charge of how many guests they can add, including number of +1s, +2s, etc., and their ability to check-in guests.
Guestsnow’s automated RSVP system allows guests to respond directly via the email you send them, so you don’t have to manually confirm their presence. What’s more, they receive a personalized QR code they can just show at the door for hassle-free check-in.
Add Guests On-the-Go
Of course, sometimes you actually need to add guests on-the-go… Guestsnow has that covered too, in just a few taps to help you save time and tension.
Push Notifications for Super VIPs and Artists
Another great benefit of Guestsnow’s digitized solutions are the push notifications you get when your most important guests arrive. You can stop scanning the room frantically -- you and your people will know right away when it’s time to lay out the red carpet.
These are just some examples of how Guestsnow can help you simplify the tasks that typically take your attention away from the event you’ve spent all this time preparing for. Use that newfound headspace to greet your guests, troubleshoot all the other stuff and generally give your event that extra je ne sais quoi.
Try Guestsnow for free or log into your existing account to make use of all these great features and more. The best part: it’s one flat fee per event for access to all the perks Guestsnow has to offer.
Creating and managing your events with Guestsnow is the best way to ditch the clipboard and check-in your eager guests. But we can’t forget that Facebook is still an important hub for tracking your social calendar and events. Thankfully, you don’t have to choose.
In the first Facebook Events integration of its kind, Guestsnow can seamlessly connect your Facebook Event with your Guestsnow account so you can tap into all those social followers and enjoy the full slate of event management features Guestsnow has to offer.
Here are some of the benefits:
- Easily integrate your Facebook Event with the click of a button
- Send out confirmation emails with scannable QR codes
- Sync changes and updates to your guest list anytime
- Check guests right in without having to collect new RSVPs or download contacts from Facebook
- Pull in important Facebook Event details like Title of your event, Date, Start & End Times, Event Location and Guest Names
Now, there’s no reason to limit yourself. You can get the best of both Guestsnow and Facebook without cramping your style and knowing no other event management platform can currently do the same.
