Once a series of small gatherings and workshops, Step is now the largest experiential tech festival in the Middle East: a collection of startups, digital enthusiasts, government entities, and entrepreneurs.

To engage their tech-savvy and mobile-first audience, Step sought an event app that was both intuitive, responsive and user-friendly. With Swapcard, Step Conference was able to host a personalized event that reflected each attendee's personal experience.

The Challenges

💫 A 360-Event Experience

One solution for two events to maintain the attendee networking experience and keep everyone engaged the whole time.

🎟 One Platform with Ticket Customizations

Step Conference's programming depended on the type of ticket the attendee purchased. It was messy.

The Results

🪪 Custom Program Based on Ticket Type

Organizers could set ticket quotes, show only relevant information to each attendee, and update parameters as required.

🛠 One Platform for Several Events

Planning processes were streamlined across events, making the participant journey between events hassle-free.
