National adult camping company Club Getaway picks Events.com as its official registration and event management platform
San Diego, Calif. – Events.com’s event technology platform will provide Club Getaway’s registration services and event management technologies including ticket cancellation insurance to help better manage guest needs and participation through built-in promotional tools and improved marketing strategies using proprietary data analysis.
“We know we have something special with Club Getaway due to our meteoric growth,” said David Schreiber, Chief Adventure Officer. “Our camper’s experience begins when they register so we see this stage as critically important. The Events.com mobile-first design registration makes the process simple, fast and easy as it functions incredibly well on phones, tablets and computers. We knew many of our guests discover and consider attending camp and our events on their phone, so having a simple mobile registration process offers a strong lift in conversion to camp attendees”.”
Founded in 1976, and located on a 300-acre property in Kent, Connecticut, Club Getaway is the original adult summer camp now offering seven weekends to choose from in 2018.
“It is incredible to be working with Club Getaway showcasing the versatility and capabilities of Events.com and how we can meet the unique needs of the longest running adult camp in the country,” said Mitch Thrower, Founder and Chairman, Events.com. “We designed and deployed our best-in-class technologies to address the many current and evolving needs of any event type and the unique nature and requirements of Club Getaway provides a great opportunity to showcase our solutions.”
Adult camps are one of the fastest growing segments in the lifestyle events space. With growth comes customer management challenges and competition so adult camp experience companies are turning to technology for an edge.
“Events.com not only offered a combination of technologies and services that far exceeded a typical ticketing technology but they also back it up with incredible customer service,” added Schreiber. “As we continue to evolve and grow, our event technology partner needed to provide growth-minded data, and valuable add-ons to improve the overall experience of our customersEvents.com checked all the boxes and added a few we had not thought of.”
The website Thrillist describes the Club Getaway experience like this; “Just like the sleepaway camp you may have attended as a kid, your days are filled with activities like archery, zip lining, kayaking, basketball, rock climbing, tennis, fitness classes, volleyball, waterskiing, and lounging about on a bunch of bouncy inflatables that dot the lakefront. However, unlike those heady four-week stints of your childhood, these adults-only jaunts also feature nightly happy hours, organized drinking games, and raucous dance parties after dark.” Thrillist’s recent video snapshot of Club Getaway, quickly garnered over 25 million views.
Registration is now open for Club Getaway’s 2018 programs.
