Elevate Your Event with Effortless Ticketing

The process begins with Trellis’ user-friendly ticketing system. Attendees can easily purchase tickets and update their information later, ensuring a smooth and flexible experience. Custom fields at checkout, such as dietary restrictions, enhance the ticketing process, offering a personalized touch. The platform also allows for strategic upsells at the time of ticket purchase, maximizing event revenue. By providing attendees access to their donor accounts, Trellis ensures seamless participation in various event activities.

Silent Auction Mastery for Increased Funds

Launch your silent auction 1 to 2 weeks ahead of the event to generate early excitement and drive up pricing. Trellis facilitates a unique feature where unsuccessful bidders can donate their bid, raising an additional 10-20% in funds. The platform sends auto-text messages for outbid notifications, eliminating the need for manual tracking. This early engagement gets people excited about the event and provides a taste of the action, setting the stage for a successful fundraising night.

Effortless Check-In for Organizers and Attendees

Trellis’ proactive approach to check-in ensures efficiency for both organizers and attendees. With auto-saving credit cards and early messaging, the platform streamlines the check-in process, reducing time and effort. Key features include the ability to add guest details on-site, text attendees event details seamlessly, and use the cart feature for easy additions. Trellis transforms check-in into a hassle-free experience, enhancing the overall event flow.

Elevate the Reception Experience

Create an engaging reception with Trellis by displaying silent auction items with QR codes for easy bidding. Showcase live auction items on a large screen, linking attendees to bid history and sponsor information. Trellis ensures a seamless and interactive experience for attendees, maximizing engagement and participation.

Fund-a-Need and Live Auctions

Craft a compelling impact story for Fund-a-Need, making it easy for attendees to donate with a click of a button. Plan ahead with pre-seeded donations to boost engagement during the event, and express gratitude to donors as they contribute to the cause. Following the Fund-a-Need, begin to build excitement again with a preview of live auction items online. The MC, with the help of volunteers, can smoothly conduct the live auction, recording winning paddle numbers for easy integration into the Trellis check-in app.

Strategic Raffle Management

Close the event with a raffle draw, leveraging Trellis’ Pro Plan for targeted text messages to boost ticket sales. Use the Trellis random number generator to select winners and announce them at the end of the event.

Event Wrap-Up and Post-Event Gratitude

Express gratitude to attendees for their participation and automatically send emails with instructions for auction item pickup and tax receipts. Utilize Trellis’ reporting tools to assess the event’s success. Identify key contributors for future engagement and send a thank-you email, highlighting the impact on the community and providing an early reminder for the next event.
