Do you follow the #EventProfs hashtag on Twitter? Are you always on the hunt for new tools you can integrate into your event management business? Whether you’re a wedding and party planner or a conference scheduler, it is imperative you stay up-to-date on the latest tools for your industry. From booking attendees and keynote speakers at a conference to identifying sales leads for clients of your event planning agency, maintaining an awareness of essential tools for event professionals is crucial to the success of your business. If you use Google’s Chrome as your browser of choice, there are a number of fabulous extensions you can consider integrating into your event management duties. Review the following list of five powerful Chrome extensions for event professionals to see which ones will be must-haves for your browser:


The Pinvents Chrome extension keeps you updated on events in specific geographic locations. Whether you want to monitor events in your area or target events in your competitors’ locations, you can do so with this handy add-on. Use Pinvents to advise clients of networking opportunities or uncover potential gigs for your events company.



The Vyte extension lets you add meetings to your event calendar from multiple locations. Whether you’re using Google Calendar, LinkedIn, or Gmail, you can add meetings to your schedule for both one-on-one meetings as well as group meetings.


Rocket Whale

Rocket Whale is a must-have Chrome extension for event marketers. Rocket Whale automatically finds email addresses from social network profiles, allowing you to expand the reach of your event marketing efforts. Make connections based upon location, company, or even job description. Once you’ve discovered Rocket Whale, you’ll likely never go back to cold-calling or cold-emailing again.



Adding the Pickot extension to your Chrome browser is like having your own private detective on-call 24/7. This handy extension lets you monitor the Internet for any keyword you want. Receive email alert for events, monitor your competitor’s website, or stay up-to-date on happenings in your target market.


Facebook Invite All

If you’re using Facebook as part of your social media outreach strategy, the Facebook Invite All extension is another must-have tool. This helpful add-on lets you automatically invite all of your Facebook followers to an event. Just like the reply-all button in email, this extension makes sending mass event invitations easy.


Integrating a variety of Chrome extensions into your event professional duties helps you maximize your time so you can grow your business. From event planning to lead generation, Chrome extensions are like adding another member to your team without having to pay an additional salary.
