5 New Apps to Make Meeting Planning Tasks Easier

By Hayley Panagakis, September 13, 2016


Booking local talent just got a whole lot easier. GigTown is an app that helps you find and book local artists and bands. Post your event to the app and voila! Artists submit their interest, and you book your favorite.

Building communities is priority No. 1 for Skoop, a communal app allowing event attendees to stay connected with each other year-round. Use it as your on-site app and keep everyone engaged until your next show.


Your speakers will love LikeSo, an app that acts as a personal speech coach. It tracks your verbal habits to train you against using filler words such as “like,” “actually” and “you know.” Like, awesome!


Nothing beats the personal touch of a handwritten note after making a new connection. Punkpost spares you the hand cramps by sending the physical letter for you. Choose your card design, type your message and pay—it’s that simple.


Transporting event materials is a hassle, but not with Shyp, which packages and ships materials for you. Snap a pic of what you want to send, and a vehicle will come directly to you and take care of it. The app currently serves San Francisco, Los Angeles, New York City and Chicago.
