Client Testimonial

We signed up with Eventmaster for the first time this year and the system gave us everything we wanted and more. The registration system was very user-friendly for our participants, the reports and financials were easily accessible and the additional fundraising pages generated by the system proved to be a game-changer for the charity in driving extra donations. Having the registration fee payments linked to our Stripe account was very helpful in having funds received daily. The team in Eventmaster were an absolute pleasure to work with. They gave us great advice as we set up our event and reacted instantly if we had queries or needed to make changes- always available and so professional.
