Beyond Customised Apps: What Else Do Event Organisers Need for Successful Live Events?

Creating a bespoke event app can be a complex and costly process.

The cost of developing an app can vary depending on the features and functionality required, the size of the event, and the customisation needed. Generally, the cost of developing a bespoke event app can range anywhere from tens to hundreds of thousands of pounds.

To create a bespoke app, event organisers need to hire a team of experienced developers who can design, code, and test the app. This team typically includes project managers, UI/UX designers, developers, testers, and quality assurance experts. The cost of hiring these professionals can be a significant expense.

The alternative would be to commission a digital agency where the prices will be great, given the agency has to make a profit too.

Other costs associated with developing a bespoke event app include server hosting, security and privacy features, maintenance and updates, and integration with third-party services such as payment gateways or social media platforms. These costs can quickly add up, making bespoke app development an expensive investment for event organisers.

Furthermore, the cost of developing a bespoke app is not a one-time expense. App development is an ongoing process that requires updates and maintenance to keep up with changes in technology and user expectations. This means that event organisers may need to allocate additional resources to maintain and improve the app over time, further increasing the total cost of ownership.

Overall, while bespoke event apps can provide a high level of Customisation and functionality, they can also be a significant financial investment. Event organisers should carefully consider their budget and goals before deciding whether to develop a bespoke app or explore more cost-effective alternatives such as Gyder.
