Attendees can explore and purchase merchandise, manage group registrations, and even personalize badge names and group memberships for a personalized touch.

Our support for on-site point of sale transactions ensures that your convention runs smoothly, allowing for easy, real-time sales during the event.
Create and manage informational pages effortlessly with our built-in content management system (CMS). Build menus and dropdown submenus to provide attendees with all the information they need in one place.
