Use Salesforce to Run and Report on Your Events

Built on the Salesforce Platform

You’ve invested in Salesforce, why not use it for your events, too? Save hours of unnecessary work by ditching manual data imports caused by limited third-party event app integrations like Cvent or Hopin. Auto-create Leads, Accounts, and Contacts directly in Salesforce from our registration forms.

Departmental or Campus-Wide Use

You need a flexible solution. Use Blackthorn Events for a single department’s events or implement across the campus, with admissions, student life and alumni. There are no surprises with our predictable pricing, and we can easily scale as your needs grow.

Implementation in Weeks, Not Months

Install our app for free, and be running your first event in weeks versus months. If events are just one part of your larger Salesforce implementation, we work with several Higher Education consultants across the Salesforce ecosystem who recommend us.

Constant Innovation

Our product roadmap is molded by feedback from our customers and their event management needs. The best part? You can take advantage of features we’ve developed for like-minded teams, too!

“Listens to their Customers”

Blackthorn is an awesome native Salesforce event platform. Blackthorn listens to their customers and puts out monthly releases with new features requested. Blackthorn also integrates with TouchNet payment processor, which is key to the Higher Ed landscape. We are so excited to be rolling out Blackthorn across campus. The support provided by Blackthorn is speedy and very helpful! I would highly recommend.

Evan Thrailkill
Director of Digital Strategy

“Improvements and Enhancements Monthly”

Blackthorn has been an excellent, and more importantly, responsive partner. The fact that they update their product in response to client needs and do improvements and enhancements monthly has really helped us to make our events run smoothly and efficiently...In addition, their solution already had the best of all the other applications we evaluated.

Andi McLaughlin
CRM Analyst

“Great at Giving Support”

...the best thing to like about Blackthorn Events has been the support. Everyone’s data model is a little different...Blackthorn has been great [at] giving support and advice, resolving bug reports, and fixing the occasional PBKAC error on our part.

"BP Is Incredibly Flexible"

"We like BP [Blackthorn Payments] because it provides us with the ability to build any process and integrate payments in whatever way we want… BP is incredibly flexible and that's why we like it."
Jorge Fernandez

Managing Events is Simpler

Being able to see all event attendance from within Salesforce is making managing events much easier. We no longer need to export and import data.
Ranjeeta Baijnauth

No Brainer

My business is a consulting partner with Salesforce.com and we constantly look to the AppExchange for solutions that provide value, flexibility and meet our clients needs. Many of our clients hold events like large dinners, hiring fairs, lunch and learns etc. This app tackles the hard part of event management with ease.

Just install it and you will understand.
Paul Tunison

Great Product & Great Support

We're implementing Blackthorn Events right now. Blackthorn's support and developers have been incredibly helpful getting us up to speed very quickly. They seem to be putting out great new features all the time. I'm very excited to continue working with them.

Duplication Logic

Decrease duplication rates with full, flexible control of your matching and duplication logic. When attendees register for your event and their information matches an existing Contact, Lead, or Account, you control if a record is created, ignored, etc.

Virtual, Hybrid, and In-Person Events

Institutional needs aren’t a “one-size-fits-all.” Create, run, and report on any event type. Connect your favorite conferencing and streaming accounts such as Zoom, GoToWebinar, WebEx, and more for easy virtual or hybrid event management.

Paid Events Your Way

Running paid events? Give your constituents a safe, easy checkout experience and make your finance team happy by using their preferred payment gateway like TouchNet, CashNet, and more. We never store sensitive details, so all data is PCI-compliant.

Flexible Landing Page Options

Build on-brand event landing pages that drive registrations. Save time with auto-created landing page URLs. Use pre-built landing page templates or design your own with custom CSS. Embed on your website, show in a calendar, or use the direct link.

Easily Assign Permissions

Assign permission sets so your users have the necessary level of access to the app. We provide you with a set of pre-configured permission sets right out of the box.

Works with Communities

Show constituents relevant events, and reference the Salesforce contact ID to prefill the attendee information into the event registration page.
