The Short Version: Events are great ways to engage with and provide educational resources for your clients. However, organizing and executing such programs can be a daunting process. Employing separate systems and vendors for registration, reporting, payments, and marketing can leave event planners stressed out and spread thin. ACTIVE Network provides organizers a one-stop shop that integrates all phases of event management, from planning and marketing to execution. Cloud-based with an intuitive user interface, ACTIVE Network technology is easy to use on any device and from any location. The platform’s Camp Management Software can be especially useful for dating coaches and lifestyle experts hosting boot camps. The software works to give attendees a seamless experience, from signup to completion, and frees up organizers’ time so they can focus on their clients.

Event management is difficult in the best situations. Planning, marketing, registration, directing staff, and concerns about the weather are ever looming in the heads of organizers. The larger the event, the more daunting the task of managing it is. However, most planners strive to host well-attended meetings, especially those that aim to teach crucial interpersonal skills in a boot camp setting.

A dating boot camp has dimensions other events don’t. Not only are these professionals responsible for managing travel, lodging accommodations, and welcome mixers, but they also have to create an environment where clients feel comfortable enough to engage and open up. This is a tall order for coaches consumed by the administrative tasks inherent to event management.
