Spotlight: iBid

What do the Special Olympics, the Chicago Bears, and the Boys & Girls Clubs of America have in common?  They’ve all used iBid at fundraising events.

iBid is the personalized bidding program from Events.org.  Replace traditional auctions with state-of-the-art electronic bidding equipment. Allow guests to place bids via their own personal SmartPhones, or utilize our iPads, touch screen kiosks, and handheld bidding devices.  Enable guests can bid from wherever they want within the event venue.  The interactive atmosphere helps increase fundraising because guests have fun bidding against one another throughout the evening.  iBid allows for a more efficient and fast checkout: short lines, shorter wait, happier guests.

iBid Features
