More and more event organizers are looking for a solution to their need for dynamic and responsive websites. With the new a2zShow software that incorporates Bootstrap, an open-source framework for building responsive web interfaces, this task has been simplified, especially for our clients who already use a2zShow to manage their online exhibit sales, conference management, sponsorship sales and other event management processes.
We recently highlighted Digital Signage Expo for their innovative use of a2zShow for their 2015 event website. Another client who is succeeding with the a2zShow solution to create a responsive event web site is the West Coast Art and Frame Expo (WCAF). WCAF serves the multi-billion dollar art and custom picture framing industry. WCAF Expo owners, Hobby Pubco of Freehold, New Jersey, have been a customer of a2z’s event management platform for the past eight years. The new event website delivers a consistent, interactive and responsive user experience across multiple devices.
Not only does the website look great—it was easy to build since it is integrated with a2z’s software for all of the back-end operations. Any changes or updates made to content on the back-end are shown in real-time on the public facing event website. WCAF event organizers share more about how the new a2zShow helped them to offer a more immersive experience to their attendees, as well as, how easy the software is to use.

Also, a2z and four of its clients were recently recognized with 2015 WebAwards for Outstanding Achievement in Web Development. Each of these sites were also built using the new a2zShow software. In addition, Pixe Social – a2z’s sister company – was recognized for the 2015 Best Application Service Provider Website. Both the a2zinc.net and pixesocial.com websites were built using a2zShow.
In the old days, your event management software sat on one side of the “house” and your website sat on the other. The event management application came from one supplier. Websites, on the other hand, were built by a third-party website development company. This old model contributed to increased issues with data synchronization, software or application synchronization, brand continuity, vendor management, and training for managing multiple applications. It’s different today. One company and one platform can manage both sides of the house and make it so much easier for event planners.
