Groupize launches DIY app for meetings, events

Travel and event-management platform Groupize has launched a do-it-yourself attendee app for virtual, hybrid and in-person events and meetings. The Groupize Attendee App includes all the key features and does not need a designer or coder. 
“There is a huge demand for solutions that cater to events when a virtual link just isn’t enough,” said Groupize CEO Alisa de Gaspe Beaubien. “In line with our vision and passion, we created this app for companywide adoption to address an untapped and underserved market. Our app starts at $500 per event and can be configured easily and quickly using company-approved templates. In just minutes, users can elevate their events into interactive, branded, hybrid, and professional experiences with zero training.”
The Groupize Attendee App works with video conferencing services like Zoom, Microsoft Teams, GoToMeeting, Google Hangouts, Amazon Chime, Ring Central, WebEx and others. 
Additionally, the app offers a virtual networking experience with spatial recognition. Planners can create spaces with virtual backgrounds such as lobbies, stages, exhibition halls, conference rooms or bars. Attendees can navigate from room to room and network directly with other attendees within their virtual proximity.
