The Challenges 

When Third Door Media started to scale up the number of attendees and events on an annual basis they needed an event management platform that didn’t charge per registrant as it was making less and less sense from a business perspective. As they started to evaluate Swoogo, it became obvious that not only was their current event platform way too expensive, the user experience was lacking in everything from the ease of reporting to front-end customization. To put it bluntly, the legacy platform was difficult to use and manage and was overall too expensive.  

The Solution 

Third Door Media was initially looking for a new event platform due to the per registrant pricing not being feasible for their scaling business, but what they found with Swoogo was much, much, more. Swoogo’s user experience and administration are the most powerful features for Third Door Media. The ability to quickly create world-class registrations sites with flexibility in nearly every area has given them the freedom to optimize, test, and explore ideas that were previously limited. Conditional logic, for example, combined with discount codes and custom links has provided them with robust and powerful capabilities, as has the built-in CMS which enabled Third Door Media to pivot very quickly to virtual events when covid first hit. 


Additionally, Third Door Media has leveraged Swoogo’s support and development teams to better understand Swoogo’s API and with each support ticket submission, Third Door Media has received fast replies and in nearly all cases, immediate solutions. Third Door Media stated that Swoogo was incredibly collaborative, open to new ideas, and extremely responsive. 

Overall, Swoogo was the perfect solution for Third Door Media as it’s easy to use, powerful, and allows them to be creative within a framework that reduces development costs, accelerates their ability to innovate, and is affordable.
