Palo Alto, Calif. and San Francisco – October 31, 2012 – SurveyMonkey, the world's largest online survey company, and Eventbrite, the leading online event registration and ticketing company, today announced a partnership to improve collaboration and feedback between event organizers and attendees. The technical integration of these two services enables organizers of any event to quickly and cost-effectively collect feedback, insights and suggestions from attendees for future or past events.
"This partnership is a perfect match because we're in the business of helping our customers make better decisions and Eventbrite is also focused on providing actionable data to their users," said Dave Goldberg, CEO, SurveyMonkey. "Our companies have similar goals of disrupting traditional processes in order to deliver a better customer experience, and this new offering brings more efficiency to the way event organizers gather and implement insightful data from their attendees."
The new integration is made available through Eventbrite's API and provides a way to collect input on many aspects of an event - from polling attendees on topics of interest or wine selection preferences prior to an event, to understanding if attendees learned relevant tech skills from the conference presenters after the event. This pre- and post-event feedback will help organizers better tailor their events to their attendees' interests and provide critical post-event feedback for improving future events.
"We continue to create and find innovative ways to help event organizers host successful events and sell more tickets," said Kevin Hartz, Co-Founder & CEO of Eventbrite. "We are so pleased that leading companies like SurveyMonkey are developing on our platform, which gives our organizers the opportunity to collect important insights to create and host the best events possible."
To launch a post-event survey, Eventbrite users can log into their dashboard, select the desired event, and immediately enter into a simple online process to create and distribute a survey of their choice to attendees. Additionally, the companies created four new event feedback templates that further simplify creating and customizing a survey for organizers.
