Publication date: 14.02.2024

In the dynamic landscape of event management, organizers seek platforms that streamline their operations, enhance attendee experiences, and ensure seamless event execution. Among the plethora of options available, Eventbrite and Eventzilla stand out as leading solutions, offering robust features tailored to meet diverse event needs.

In this blog post, we embark on a journey to explore the functionalities, strengths, and unique offerings of both platforms, empowering event organizers to make informed decisions that align with their objectives.

Join us as we embark on a comprehensive exploration of event planning and management intricacies, unveiling the remarkable capabilities that position Eventbrite and Eventzilla at the forefront of the industry.

What is suitable for you or your business?

In my opinion both platforms offer valuable event management features, but differentiate from each other by specific characteristics. With this blog post we would be showcasing the vital aspects for each platform and make comparison points, so it would be easier for you to choose exactly what you need.

Key aspects for Eventbrite

If your aim is to develop high-performing email marketing campaigns, in order to connect with your event attendees, then this is the right platform for you. Their software demo explains how to make the most of their Online Help Center, which delivers self-serve guidance to manage your event.

Plus, Eventbrite’s premium feature offers a dedicated strategic partner to address your burning questions, providing tailor-made support that goes above and beyond.

Why is it important for your business?

Eventbrite's pricing structure is a game-changer, making it accessible to organizers and participants alike. Armed with advanced email targeting and social media advertising tools, I believe that it will be your go-to platform for reaching the masses.

But here's the catch – Eventbrite holds onto your attendee data. And while it's a powerhouse for mass marketing, it may fall short in scenarios like live or virtual summits, lacking essential attendee engagement features and robust event management tools.

For who would be suitable Eventzilla?

Are you a small or medium-sized business that want an easy onboarding and professional customization options? Then Eventzilla might be more suitable for you!

Eventzilla’s intuitive and easy-to-use platform simplifies your event planning and management workflows by providing a free management and registration solution targeted for organizers of any size. The solution enables the user to host an unlimited number of events without charge. However, for paid events, there is a $1 flat fee per attendee.

Conferences, fundraisers, classes, festivals, concerts, sporting events, networking and more can be organised with this solution.

Key aspects for comparison


  • Eventbrite - Free ticketing and marketing tools for up to 25 tickets. For $9.99 per event, with a restricted number of tickets and emails, the paid plans are available.

  • Eventzilla - Offers pay-as-you-go and pre-paid pricing models. Ticketing fees start at $1.50 for the BASIC plan, + %1.9 for PRO, and + %2.9 for PLUS.

Attendee Engagement

  • Eventbrite - Doesn’t offer any attendee engagement features.

  • Eventzilla - Event Mobile App lets attendees engage with polls, ratings, and push notifications. Includes 1:1 chat for networking. It updates attendees on the agenda.


  • Eventbrite - Highly-targeted email marketing, social media ads, and Eventbrite Ad campaigns.

  • Eventzilla - Offers a customizable event landing page with re-arrangeable custom content blocks, discount codes, email marketing, and more.

Payment Processing Fees

  • Eventbrite - Payout three days post-event. Ticketing fee of 3.7% + $1.79 per ticket + order fees of 2.9% per ticket.

  • Eventzilla - Daily, weekly, or monthly payouts. Ticketing fees of $0.99 + 2.4-2.9% per ticket.


In conclusion, I strongly believe that both platforms offer valuable event management solutions with distinct advantages. By considering your specific needs and the features each platform offers, I am sure that you can make an informed decision that aligns with your business objectives and enhances your event management experience.
