The goal of this list is to give group leaders a general lay of the land of tools they might consider, based on what other groups are using.
(SURVEY RESULTS 2020 - Top Tools) We launched a group tools survey in October 2020, and you can find a summary of the results here. The results have been added to our list of tools and links as you consider your tech stack.
*Note that the survey was designed to get a quick and rough sense of tool use by group leaders.
Toolsets specific for Community Groups
This is not meant to be an exhaustive list or detailed comparison. There are many tool comparison resources on YouTube, blogs, and sites like stackshare.io and Capterra.
Not all tools are digital. For physical events you might want to create an event hosting toolkit with things like nametags, sharpies, flip charts, and signage.
Digital tools to host and broadcast may include:
Virtual Events/ Conferences
Airmeet.com - "Airmeet is an all-in-one platform to host immersive events and build real connections, online." Use it for more immersive and interactive formats (workshops, meetups, fairs, summits, conferences, hackathons)
You have a lounge, for example, where people can virtually seat with other people and have a conversation. In the paid Conference, you can setup concurrent sessions, have the lounge and setup some booths for other people or sponsors.
Virtual meeting are optimized for conversations with a smaller and known audience
