What is Assenty?


Assenty is based on a simple idea: that you don’t have to wait till the Q&A session to hear from the audience at your event.

Get questions for speakers, audience insights, helpful feedback and more, before it happens, share easily on social media and deliver the perfect event faster!

You know how it goes. Your event date is looming and you need to get the word out to as many people as possible and shift some more tickets.

You’re doing your best on social but it’s hard…

What if there’s a better way?

Rather than regurgitating the same tired material about early bird tickets going NOW, what if you could kick-start conversations on social media before the event happens using audience insights supplied by would-be delegates?

With Assenty you can.

You can widen the network of potential attendees by engaging with them on social media before the event using Assenty’s industry-leading pre-event polling and real-time Q&A
platform
.

What is it for?

Assenty started out as a solution to the problem of answering questions from an audience.

It has evolved to become the only audience interaction and live polling tool that helps you deliver the perfect event faster.

It was shortlisted for a 2017 UK Digital Entrepreneur Award and is a Top 20 finalist in the Northern Stars 2017 competition to find the best tech startups in the North of England.

How does it work?

Event organisers submit a few details about their event at assenty.com to get a question board, a URL which anyone can post questions to, for free.

Every question posted is up for the public vote and event organisers can answer and reward questions and publish polls in real-time. Questions can also be posted anonymously.

The question board can be sent to delegates weeks before the event, making the platform perfect for getting questions for speakers on a panel from Twitter, for example.

Questions, polls and question boards are easily shared on social media, with the hashtag automatically included in posts, and individual questions can be embedded on websites and blogs.

What does it do?

Assenty was designed to spark conversations and buzz about an event on social media.

Powered by the same virtual machine underlying WhatsApp, it supports a virtually unlimited number of concurrent users.

Who is it for?

Assenty is for the busy event organiser who wants an easy way to:

  1. find out what potential delegates want to see, hear and discuss at the event
  2. promote an event by inviting questions for its speakers on social media
  3. ask attendees for feedback before and after the event

Why would they use it?

We’re told people like Assenty because it is easy to use and delivers a fun and convenient way to get people talking about an event before it happens.
