Complete solution that drives 60%+ guest engagement

We combine turnkey technology that’s easy and fun to use with activation and content strategies created specifically for your event.

Much more than paperless

Bonfyre offers easy access to information guests need without deprioritizing human interaction. Add personalized agendas, maps, bios, sponsors and more to your bonfyre.

Features that tailor-fit to your unique event

Customize your bonfyre with features to drive engagement and improve the experience like pop surveys, games, and networking tools or work with us to create something from scratch.

Data you can use

Higher quality engagement creates a wealth of new insights about how to improve the experience for next year – which activities/speakers resonated, guest sentiment, influencers and more.

Privacy and control that’s simple for everyone

From large events with thousands to intimate group conversations, each bonfyre is a private community that gives everyone total control over their experience – content, accessibility, notifications and more.
