THEIR STORY

Empowering bicycle builders

The mission of the North American Handmade Bicycle Shows (NAHBS) is a simple one: Showcase the talents and share ideas among the best builders of handmade bicycle frames in the world. Since its debut in 2005, NAHBS has become established as the world’s number one handmade bicycle show.

In addition to many US frame builders, exhibitors from countries including Australia, Canada, Denmark, France, Germany, Great Britain, Italy, Japan, and the Netherlands have helped the show become an international display of bicycle craftsmanship.

THEIR GOAL

Seamless registration before and during the event

After several years of dealing with issues around exhibitor and attendee registration, NAHBS knew they needed a platform that could work fast without causing any unexpected problems. They also wanted a way to manage their volunteers without using multiple programs.

THEIR SOLUTION

Managing the details within one effective platform

In an attempt to get ahead of the typical issues they were facing year after year with their event, Jennifer Best, Director of Operations for NAHBS, reached out to SpinGo to inquire about the Event Master platform.

With Event Master, NAHBS created custom exhibitor applications and screened applicants. Once an applicant was approved, NAHBS collected payment for customized booth options, mapped them on the exhibit floor, and collected compliance details.

In addition to getting help with their exhibitors, NAHBS also used the volunteer feature in Event Master to communicate with volunteers and schedule shifts without any confusion.

With exhibitors and volunteers ready to go to their event, NAHBS only had one thing left to handle, their attendees. Using Event Master, NAHBS checked-in and credentialed attendees onsite within seconds.

THEIR SUCCESS

Organized management for a flawless event.

With SpinGo’s Event Master, the NAHBS team was able to move a record-breaking number of attendees through the event quickly. The platform was able to simplify how NAHBS onboarded exhibitors and provided customized credentials for each exhibitor’s booth staff.

With Event Master, NAHBS achieved the following:

  • 4,000+ attendees checked-in
  • 152 exhibitors credentialed
  • 90 volunteers onboarded

After years of dealing with issues at check-in, it was so wonderful to have SpinGo move our exhibitors and attendees through the event without any setbacks. I am so grateful for SpinGo’s help managing our event!
