What Is a Live Event Chatbot?

A live event chatbot allows customers to get quick answers to their questions before, during, and after a live event. Moreover, it can enhance the experience of your visitors. Offer support, exclusive content, deals, entertainment, or notifications to not miss out on must-sees at the event.

Event chatbots can have multiple purposes. Use it for customer service, purely informational, or enhance the event experience with added entertainment. Create a consistent experience across marketing, service, and sales conversations.  

Live event chatbots can respond quickly and easily to all sorts of questions visitors ask about live events, giving agents more time to respond to complex questions or issues.  

As well as automatically responding to frequently asked questions, an AI-powered chatbot can understand the context and recall detailed information in order to answer broader questions, creating a more conversational experience for consumers. It can use real-time data to give the best, personal responses – such as directing visitors to the stage where their favorite artist or speaker will perform, or to the toilets without queues.  

Moreover, you can also make your bot transactional - enabling customers to buy tickets and merchandise or to change their data.

The event bot can deal with the whole experience, only handing off to customer service agents when a query is escalated to a level the virtual assistant can no longer manage or when the customer requests human support. 

A successful example of a live event chatbot is the Race Engineer of the Formula 1 Heineken Dutch Grand Prix.

How to Get Started With a Live Event Chatbot

Start thinking about how a virtual assistant can enhance your event experience. What should the bot be able to do? Next question: where can visitors find it? You can deploy the same bot on any channel: in your event app, on the website, or via WhatsApp for example. Or deploy it on your IVR as a voicebot to take the strain off your call center.

By answering these questions, you create your event bot strategy. Then you can start building.
