Great speakers are the core of a great event. But receiving and organizing talk submissions, reviewing, selecting, and organizing speakers into rooms and timeslots is a big job.
Review Star offers an integrated suite of cloud-based speaker management tools that greatly simplifies the process. Speakers submit proposals effortlessly through a customized form, reviewers have a simple interface for scoring and feedback, and you can manage it all with an intuitive interface.
Painless, web-based submissions. No more emailing PDFs, Word docs, and spreadsheets. Just simple, beautiful web forms that are easy to use. No login required!
Custom Form Builder. Create and customize as many forms as you like. Whether your submission form uses many fields or just a few, it’s easy to create and arrange your fields, producing a form that’s simple and intuitive.
Simple, Organized Review and Scoring. Using Review Star, event planners are dramatically improving the experience of Review Committee members. Your reviewers can look at submissions without logging in and quickly share feedback. You’re able to quickly see where reviews are in process and the real-time status of the session feedback – without spending hours sending follow up emails and crunching numbers.
Custom Scoring Criteria. Use as few or as many scoring criteria as you need. Whether you want to give reviewers just a single criteria or score on multiple dimensions, you can configure it easily. For example, you might use just one (“Overall Rating”) or several (“Authority of Speaker”, “Relevance of Topic”, “Quality of Submission”, “Would Attend”, etc).
Happy Review Committees. Reviewers do their scoring through a nicely-designed web page. Any reviewer with a current browser and an internet connection can score their submissions from anywhere, quickly and easily. No login required!
Flexible Scheduling. Whether you have one room for one day, or multiple venues with dozens of rooms, our Placements feature helps you organize and schedule your sessions – from keynote to classroom.
Login Not Required. Speakers and reviewers do not need to create and remember a login. Anyone with a modern web browser can easily access the system.
Workflow Builder. Trigger custom actions to be performed whenever certain system events occur. For example, sending an email notification when a new talk is submitted.
