Importance of maps

For event organizers of festivals, having a scalable map is important. These maps help everyone find their way around the festival easily, so nobody gets lost or confused. They show where everything is located, like stages, food stalls, bathrooms, and first aid spots. They're not just handy for guests—organizers use them to plan out the whole festival, like deciding where each booth goes or how to set up seating.

With clear maps, organizers can make sure everything runs smoothly and safely. So, maps aren't just helpful – they're essential for making sure everyone has a great time at the festival. In this blog, we will discuss all the features to look for in map-making software. 

Customizing booths and spaces

Interactive maps offer event organizers a powerful tool to streamline their planning process and enhance attendee experience.

With scalable maps, you can customize your event layout efficiently. You have the ability to assign booths to applicants effortlessly and include specific details such as tables, chairs, seating, bathroom location, and more. Eventeny allows for this and also gives event organizers the ability to charge for seating, tables, and more directly on the map. This allows for seamless payment, so there are no issues with invoices which also eliminates the need for manual sorting and reduces planning time.

Real-time accessibility

Interactive maps allow you to access artist, vendor, and exhibitor information in real-time, with the convenience of it being on the tips of your fingers. You can keep track of changes and updates instantly, ensuring that your event information remains accuratebooths finalpng and up-to-date.

Flexibility in booth assignment

As an event organizer, it is crucial to have the flexibility to decide how booth assignments are managed if you're using a mapping software. You can choose whether vendors can select their own booth space or if you prefer to unassign booth spaces for them. This customizable approach caters to the unique needs and preferences of your event. Eventeny allows for this and allows you, as the event organizer, to decide if you'd want to set a price on a certain booth (such as if it is closest to the entrance). 

Effortless sharing

Once your map is finalized, sharing it with all your vendors is a breeze. You can distribute the map electronically, ensuring that everyone has access to the latest information and can plan accordingly.

Incorporating interactive maps into your event planning toolkit can revolutionize the way you organize and execute events, saving time, improving communication, and enhancing overall efficiency.

Creating scalable maps 

Creating scalable maps is essential for ensuring a seamless festival experience for both organizers and attendees. These maps serve as a visual guide, showcasing the layout of the festival grounds and highlighting key points of interest such as stages, food stalls, restrooms, and more. Not only do they help attendees navigate the event easily, but they also aid organizers in planning and executing the festival efficiently. 

Some things to keep in mind when creating your scalable maps are:

Incorporate interactivity

Interactive features are a key component of creating engaging festival maps. By incorporating elements such as zooming, filtering, and clickable icons, you can provide attendees with a dynamic and user-friendly experience. Zooming allows users to get a closer look at specific areas of the map. Clickable icons add interactivity, allowing attendees to access additional information with just a simple click. For example, Eventeny's mapping feature allows you to access information about a booth owned by a specific vendor with just a simple click. This gives attendees the ability to explore the event effortlessly before it begins, allowing them to check out booths that pique their interest.scalable-maps

Having interactivity not only enhances functionality but also makes the festival experience more immersive and enjoyable for all participants.


Scalability is also a feature that can help plan the ultimate festival map. Having this feature on a map allows it allows you to be able to accurately place booths and other icons on a map based on the designated space of the event. This allows for better accuracy when planning out an event so that there are no unwanted surprises the day of the set-up. For example, Eventeny's map allows event organizers to enter the length of their event venue. This helps depict how much space is available to place vendor-specific booths, seating, stalls, and more.

Creativity with layers and icons

Booths, designated spaces, and seating charts are important when creating a guide for a festival map. To make this process easy on the eyes, it is important to have the ability to use layers and different icons to differentiate from the different offerings that your festival has to provide.
