    Science and Technology Australia (STA) is Australia’s peak body in science and technology, advocating for and bringing together scientists, scientific societies, governments, industry, and the broader community to help solve some of humanity’s greatest challenges.

    From low-tech and time-intensive to high-tech and time-saving

    With over 115,000 scientists and technologists as members, STA runs a range of professional development, member meet-up, and industry and partner engagement events. Previously, these events were managed through email and spreadsheets, which Events and Membership Manager Mitchell Piercy described as “very low tech but high time cost”. Now, the team leverage EventsAir’s suite of event management tools, including the event website, registration, event app, agenda, and accommodation, which has helped them save time, increase efficiency, and level up their event management processes.

    “I would highly recommend EventsAir to anyone doing it the old way, it professionalizes everything.”

    Additionally, the EventsAir platform has been invaluable from a project management perspective, helping to keep Piercy’s team on-task and the event planning on track. “[The team] get email alerts when certain tasks are due and they can log into EventsAir to keep track of projects”, Piercy said.

    Revolutionizing audience engagement with event apps

    Having the ability to engage and directly communicate with event attendees via an event app has been a game changer for Piercy and his team. “[The event app] is very intuitive to use from both an event manager perspective and also for delegates going to events; it’s revolutionized how we engage with our delegates,” Piercy said.

    Turning feedback into action

    A core part of the EventsAir ethos is that we listen to our customers and put them at the center of everything we do. This is reflected in Piercy’s comments that EventsAir customer support “listens to input – you can actually see it in the software 6-12 months later. The team is responsive, friendly, and fantastic to work with.”
