There are too many trying to do the same thing, but Grip are a leader in the field. They were the first to use AI so the matching actually works. Ultimately, when you like what you see and want to scale to 25 events, Grip can do that.

We pride ourselves on making our experiences for attendees great and our first event together with Grip was brilliant. Clients kept coming to us saying they loved the app. It’s been a pleasure to work with Grip.
