Turning events into communities

Events and communities go hand-in-hand. Pappyon is building the ultimate space that makes it easy to have the best of both worlds.

“After every event, it’s like we’re kicked out of the party, left to our own ‘devices’, scrambling to find each other to reignite connection. The bubble just bursts…we’re keen to help you change that.” – Sonia Zeiback | Founder & CEO of Pappyon

Event tech bringing business networking communities celebrations innovation leadership to life!

Come for the occasion; come to engage, to learn, to celebrate. Stay for the connection; for the conversations; for the memories.

Pappyon is a dynamic platform that modernizes event management and attendee engagement by blending private social networking and contact management technology.

Our goal is to simplify the process for event hosts, organizers, and stakeholders who work hard to unite attendees, sponsors, partners, and speakers. They do an amazing job at creating powerful communities and moments but sadly, the magic fades quickly.

By using Pappyon as a central hub, the true essence of events can be captured in dedicated spaces that can act as digital venues. Venues that enable all participants and attendees to come and go as they please.

Now, the information and knowledge shared and the experiences, conversations and connections formed, no longer need to be momentary.

An engaging and on-brand touch point

Ultimately, every dedicated event space can serve as a single source of truth for hosts, organizers, featured participants and attendees.

This begins with the set up — where an organizer starts to unleash the magic that awaits!

  • Create your event Home Page
  • Build the program and agenda – single or multi day events
  • Profile partners, sponsors, speakers & other featured participants
  • Set the admin and attendee engagement parameters 
  • Send out invitations, keep track of them and more!…

Enable attendees to remain connected

When networking – be it in person or at virtual events – as an event organizer, you’re either the hero or the thorn when it comes to enabling connection.

Pappyon focuses on the former, choosing to celebrate you, the organizer, as the hero. After all, without you, the opportunity to connect wouldn’t exist in the first place.

With your event space on Pappyon, never again will attendees miss a chance to connect if they forget their business card or leave their contact details and social handles scattered throughout a chat room.

💚 All connections an attendee makes through your dedicated space, will attach to their app account on Pappyon to keep!

Maintain a consistent brand identity

Consistency with brand identity plays a big part in the success of most businesses. Take this survey as a case in point: 68% of businesses said brand consistency contributed to revenue growth by 10 to 20%.

With this in mind, we’ve got your back!

Maximize impact for Partners and Sponsors

On mainstream social media channels, the individual solely owns their connections. That’s not the way it rolls on Pappyon. Here, event partners and sponsors are empowered to create their business accounts to manage their profiles and team representation seamlessly.

Dual Ownership: A unique Advantage

Event partners and sponsors can embrace the unique “dual ownership of connections” feature on Pappyon. This is to ensure that no connection nor opportunity is lost. 

Enhanced Business and Team Visibility

By linking their business account to their featured profile within your event space, partners and sponsors and their representatives, can enjoy greater visibility and increased engagement opportunities.

The app is only needed if people wish to accept your invitation to join your network on Pappyon.

Not at all. When you invite a non-Pappyon subscriber to connect with you, they’ll be given an option to join by creating a free App Profile.

The ultimate objective here is to support you in the building of your invitation-only network.

With your Pappyon ConnectionCard, it’s definitely a case of “out with the old and in with the new”!

There’s no need to use paper business cards or any other business card solution that consists of a physical element (e.g a metal card, NFC tag, etc).
