On today's episode of Elevate Your Event, we're chatting with the Colorado Springs Conservatory about their recent event success story. They'll be sharing how they made it happen, thanks to Handbid's mobile bidding solution.

Imagine ditching those old-fashioned paper bid sheets and diving into the world of tech. The Conservatory team tells us about the perks, like nailing down accurate data and staying connected with donors long after the event's over. Plus, they'll dish on how going digital seriously leveled up the guest experience and made managing their silent auction a total breeze.

But that's not all! They'll talk about the power of teamwork and how having a personal coach by their side made navigating this tech transition a walk in the park. Spoiler alert: mobile bidding isn't just a game-changer; it's practically a fundraising superhero. Tune in for all the exciting details!
