Credly and Eventbrite Partner to Help Event Organizers Simply and Easily Certify Attendee Participation

Integration Automates the Issuing of Official Digital Badges, Enabling Event Participants to Effortlessly Promote Their Involvement

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - June 18, 2014) - Credly, the leader in recognizing achievement with digital badges and credentials, today announced a partnership with Eventbrite, the largest marketplace for live experiences. Through the new Credly and Eventbrite integration, organizers certify and reward participation in events with official digital badges. Attendees showcase this official record of their involvement by sharing their digital badges on social and professional networks including LinkedIn, Facebook, and Twitter.

"People are demanding ways to tell the full story of their interests, skills, achievements, and contributions -- and this includes those they demonstrate by participating in real-time events," said Jonathan Finkelstein, CEO & Founder of Credly. "This integration allows organizers to meet these demands, while also enhancing their event marketing."

Credly allows event organizers using Eventbrite to issue digital badges at different stages of an event's lifecycle. If increasing event registration is the key objective, organizers can choose to automatically issue badges as people register. When verifying attendance is critical, they can set badges to be issued as attendees check in or at the conclusion of the event. In addition, Eventbrite registration lists may be synced with Credly contact lists, allowing organizers to issue additional badges before, during or after an event.

By participating in conferences, conventions, classes, festivals, fundraisers, endurance and other events, attendees show their contributions and commitment to the causes, communities and trades they care about, as well as to their own professional learning and personal growth. Digital badges meet the need of acknowledging this involvement in a personalized and public way, without the cost, time and resources needed to generate paper certificates.

"Digital badges memorialize commitment, contributions and relationships -- which are on display at the best events," added Finkelstein, who previously founded LearningTimes, a leading producer of online events, outreach and learning programs for groups like the Smithsonian, American Library Association, John Hopkins University, YMCA, and the New York City Department of Education.

"Whether it's finishing that 10K race, or completing a cooking class, people love to discuss their offline achievements online. How people spend their often very limited free time is a reflection of their true passions," said Dylan Serota, Platform Manager at Eventbrite. "By partnering with Credly, Eventbrite adds another layer to our social media sharing, helping people broadcast their achievements and allowing event organizers to recognize attendee involvement."

Features include:

  • Digital badges are personalized and officially verified by the event organizer
  • Organizers can track and analyze where people share Eventbrite-issued badges through detailed Credly Reports
  • Badges shared on social media and professional networks can redirect to the organizer's website, helping attract new participants while putting the credibility of their brand behind each badge
  • When used in connection with Eventbrite's Entry Manager app, attendees can earn digital badges the moment their tickets are accepted at the door
  • Credly badges are compatible with the "Open Badges" standard
