If you're hosting your virtual event on Bizzabo, you can add Pigeonhole Live to sessions in your event to increase engagement and interactivity with your audience.

This integration will support most of Pigeonhole Live features including Q&A, Chat, Polls, Quizzes, and Surveys. It is fully integrated with your Bizzabo virtual event site so attendees are automatically logged in and can use Pigeonhole Live with their Bizzabo profiles. 

How to enable the Pigeonhole Live app on the Bizzabo Event set up page?

Once Pigeonhole Live is added to your Bizzabo Event set up page, you can then enable the Pigeonhole Live app for your event. If you do not see the Pigeonhole Live app, please contact your Bizzabo Customer Success Manager who will then help you add Pigeonhole Live to your Bizzabo Event set up page.

Note: We recommend not to make any changes to the session once your event is live to avoid getting different responses from different groups of attendees. Any changes you make to the session during the event will only take effect on new attendees or latecomers after the changes are saved. Hence, new attendees that join your Bizzabo Venue after a session has been changed will see a different Pigeonhole Live session from the previous batch of attendees.

How to change to another Pigeonhole event session from the Bizzabo Event set up page?
