Frequently Asked Questions
What is the difference between Konveau and other event apps like Eventbrite?
Konveau uses personality science and common interests to help your guests make meaningful connections at your event. Apps such as Eventbrite primarily focus on event logistics such as ticketing, guest lists, event marketing, and at the door sales. Eventbrite's core value is to organize events.
In contrast, Konveau focuses on the interpersonal experience of your guests by giving them information that empowers them to approach others, and make long lasting connections. Konveau has basic event management functionality, but it's core value is helping your guests connect with one another. Both platforms can actually be used in tandem, and once you create your event you will be given recommendations on how to use Konveau with other event management platforms. We will also be offering Eventbrite integration in the near future.
How does Konveau work?
When your guests create a Konveau profile, they'll be asked for basic background information such as interests, hometown, and industry. They then take a short personality assessment. Once users create their profiles they are then able to RSVP for events in the app. When a user RSVPs for your event, a proprietary psychological algorithm is used to calculate their personality compatibility with other event registrants.
Once your event starts, your guests will be available to view an attendee list that sorts your event registrants by how much they share in common with the user. Users can then view guest profiles which include personality descriptions, personality based conversation starters, interests, profession, and hometown. Your guests can then use the information from the attendee profiles to identify and approach other guests with whom they share personality compatibility and common interests.

What are the benefits of using Konveau?
