We have been working hard to expand the utilization and capabilities of Expo Pass within Zapier, a tool that helps you automate repetitive tasks between two or more apps—no code necessary.

You can now use Zapier to control where event data comes from and where it goes; giving you the ability to use multiple third-party applications with ease.

Want to use another registration platform? No problem! What about getting an email when a VIP attendee arrives? We can do that too! Using Zapier as a “middle-man” allows web applications that might not have been able to talk to one another, do just that, communicate!

Below you will find a basic overview of Zapier, information to get you started, as well as links to different ways you can utilize Zapier for your Expo Pass event!

Let's get to the basics: What is Zapier and how do you use it?

  • HERE is the Zapier Quick Start Guide.

Zapier is a tool that helps you automate repetitive tasks between two or more apps—no code necessary. When an event happens in one app (trigger), Zapier can tell another app to perform (or do) a particular action (action). When a Zap runs, each action it completes counts as one task.


Getting Started

Please refer to the article HERE to see what options Expo Pass has for Triggers, Actions and what data points can be pulled for each.


There are 3 ways to utilize Zapier and Expo Pass to automate Zaps for event registration:

1. Pull attendee data from any external application on Zapier into an Expo Pass event

2. Push attendee data from your Expo Pass event out to any application in Zapier

3. Push attendee data from one Expo Pass event to another Expo Pass event using Zapier


Once you choose which instance applies to your of the 3 above, let's set up your first Zap!

Follow the steps below:

  • For this example, we will be pushing attendee data from one Expo Pass event to another Expo Pass event

Please refer to the article HERE to see what options Expo Pass has for Triggers, Actions and what data points can be pulled for each.

1) Pick an app as your Trigger:

2) Choose your trigger event (the thing that happens in your Trigger application that signals Zapier to start your Zap):

3) Login to the account for the app you chose above:

  • For Expo Pass, you will need Grant Access once you enter your login credentials

4) When using Expo Pass as the application, select the event in Expo Pass where the trigger event will happen:

5) Click test and Zapier will test the Trigger to make sure the event is connected correctly. Click Continue:

6) Now that your Trigger is set up, it's time to set up your Action(s):

Select the application you would like your Trigger data to be pushed into:

7) Choose your Action Event (what you want your Zap to do after the trigger) and click Continue:

Please refer to the article HERE to see what Expo Pass has for Triggers, Actions and what data points can be pulled for each.

When using Expo Pass as the Action App, here are the different options for the Action Event:

  • Create Attendees

    • This action will register new attendees in an event

    • This action will also update attendee data if an email address or custom ID already exists in an event

  • Update Attendees

    • This action will update existing attendee data in an event

8) Login to the application:

  • If you are using Expo Pass to Expo Pass, you will not need to login again. You can simply select your account.

  • For Expo Pass, if you want an event from a different login/ Event Owner, you can click "Connect a new account".

9) Select the event in Expo Pass where you would like the Action Event to happen:

10) Choose your Event Type:

When choosing your Event Type, you will have a 2 options:

  • Badges without Custom ID: you are not providing a Custom Attendee ID, and would like Expo Pass to create one for you

    • First Name, Last Name, and Email Required

  • Badges with Custom ID: you are providing a Custom Attendee ID

    • First Name, Last Name, and Custom Attendee ID Required

11) Now you will map the data fields from your Trigger app to the data fields in your Action app and test your Zap:

12) Once the Zap has been tested, and works, you can now turn on your Zap:
