Meet people and learn new skills through events
Communities & Events
As an event organizer, you bring people together, and help create new friendships and partnerships. You are building a community. We help you run uber-awesome events while strengthening your community.
Continuously grow your community
When you hold your event, the participants will talk about how great it was, sharing it with their friends over Facebook and Twitter. Even after your event is over, people will still be able to sign up for your Doorkeeper community, meaning you'll have even more people to invite to your next event.
We'll help promote your event
We know getting participants is tough. When you host your event on Doorkeeper, we'll help promoting it to our network of event participants. Additionally, we'll automatically let other event listing sites know about your event, making it easy for new participants to find your event.
Participants never miss the next event
When someone signs up for your event, they'll become a member of your community. The next time you create an event, you'll be able to invite all your community members to attend, so no one ever misses out on your events.
Reminders and updates for participants
Someone signs up for your event. A month goes by, and they forget about it. With Doorkeeper, you can easily send out a reminder email a couple days before the event, making sure they don't forget about it.
Eliminate no-shows with prepaid events
When you collect payment at the door for your event, typically only 50 to 70 percent of people who register will actually show up. This makes planning a nightmare. By charging in advance for your event, you dramatically increase the percentage of people showing up for your event.
Participants can have all Doorkeeper events in their communities show up automatically in their calendar. This way, they'll be reminded about your upcoming event and can easily plan for it.
No more paper lists
Finding one name out of hundreds can be painful. With Doorkeeper, you can check in participants online by using our web interface or our ticket scanning app.
Know your participants
You can create a custom survey that people will fill out when they sign up, letting you know exactly what kind of people are attending your event.
Take your data with you
We let you export all your participant data, including their email addresses. So should you decide to move, your community can move with you.
We have been using Doorkeeper to manage our events for almost 5 years now and I can't imagine running our activities without it. The key elements of managing membership communications, pre and post show, along with quickly breezing attendees through check-in at the venue are mission critical and have always worked without fail. I would strongly recommend this platform, without hesitation, to any community events organizer.
What I love about Doorkeeper is it's ease of use and intuitiveness. It was definitely designed with the user in mind.
It's clear the founders understand community and community management. They are flexible, they listen to the users and are willing to take the time to enhance the site for the communities they serve.
