Goldcast… or Bizzabo?

Finding the right solution for superior webinars and engaging virtual and hybrid events

Goldcast makes it easy to host unique, professional, user-friendly webinars and virtual and hybrid events of any size, at any time. While Bizzabo does offer a robust virtual event platform, those events are clunky and old-fashioned — and they don't have a great offering for small-scale events and webinars.

Elevated attendee engagement

Give your audience more ways to get involved, from Netflix style auto-navigation that takes attendees right to the next session to on-stage engagement opportunities and interactive roundtable rooms for peer-to-peer networking. We obsessed over user experience to ensure that attendees never feel like they are just passively listening.

Effortless event show-running

Take the work out of events with simplified back-stage management. Our simple yet powerful interface makes it easy for moderators to manage engagement tools, screen share, slides, and videos. Meanwhile, speakers can meet backstage — and even on the mainstage — and get ready to speak without risking interrupting another presenter.

Reliability

Host as many webinars and virtual events as you like, and don’t waste a second worrying about stability. Because Bizzabo is built on a legacy tech stack, it may not be reliable and is prone to breaking. Goldcast is built on a modern stack, so attendees and admins alike can trust the platform.

What Goldcast Customers are Saying

Nina Butler, Director of Event Experience, Alyce

One of the main reasons we chose Goldcast was because of the data grab; a lot of software don't have those different touchpoints (for collecting data). We didn't have to prepare for anything in terms of data and we're getting the leads we want!
