HubSpot Integration Guide (atEvent Hub)

atEvent offers the deepest, most flexible HubSpot integration—so your team can capture the insights you need at every event, conference, and tradeshow and transfer them into HubSpot automatically for near real-time follow-up and nurture. With our HubSpot integration, you can instantly convert the details of people you collect at events into HubSpot prospects. You can share any text-based or selection data from your event forms. 

What the integration can do:

  • Pass the data in real-time, at the end of the day, at the end of the event or on demand (e.g., manually)
  • atEvent prioritizes updating an existing contact in HubSpot based off of email, and if no contact is found based off of email, then a new contact is created

What the integration cannot do:

  • Create or update any other objects (e.g., companies, deals, etc.)

By using your Hubspot admin user credentials you can seamlessly integrate the atEvent platform to your unique Hubspot instance. This will allow you to automate the lead creation/update process from leads captured through the atEvent app at events. 

Basic Integration (Contact Property Mapping)

Take atEvent fields and map them to your Hubspot Contact fields which updates the Contact Object. You can create Campaigns which can trigger activities while still at an event. Here are a few examples:

  • Send personalized follow up emails (thank you, collateral, white paper, etc.)
  • Send sales alerts
  • Add to lists
  • Update attendee information
