Wodapalooza Fitness Festival
Wodapalooza descends on Miami’s Bayfront Park for 4-days each January and brings together thousands of athletes, spectators, and fitness fanatics to celebrate fitness, community, and life. There are three parts to WZA Miami, the fitness competition (the foundation of WZA Miami), the Weightlifting Faceoff (1-day Olympic Lifting competition), and the spectator experience.
Loud and Live’s Wodapalooza has been growing rapidly year over year, making volunteer management a larger task and a key factor in the success of the event.
Before Bloomerang Volunteer, Stacey Konstantinov, Manager of Community Relations, had used multiple platforms and an in house built solution to try a manage volunteer registration and scheduling. “After trying many solutions, I started picking up that this would be much more feasible if everything lives inside of some type of platform versus just me running everything through spreadsheets upon spreadsheets.” Commented Stacey.
“We have an age requirement for our volunteers, which requires a checkpoint in registrations, and then we have different skill requirements for various jobs. Going back into a spreadsheet, to check everyone’s birthday and how old they are; that just takes a lot of time.” added Stacey. Reading through up to 800 applications to place volunteers into groups was taking to much time.
Loud and Live has chosen Bloomerang Volunteer as their event volunteer scheduling & communication tool to reduce administration time and keep organizers & volunteers informed and connected across 5 of their events.
300% Increase In Volunteers
“We have grown from managing 200 to 800 volunteers, Bloomerang Volunteer makes everything more efficient. I don’t have to read through 800 or 1,000 volunteer applications, I can simply filter by requirement on Bloomerang Volunteer. It saves a lot of time.”
From 1 to 5 Events Using Bloomerang Volunteer
“Our goal is to bring our volunteer database together across all five events and track activity through Bloomerang Volunteer. One system to manage all our volunteers across our events will give us insight into our volunteers, allowing us to serve our volunteers better.”
Finding The Right Solution
“Having worked with other platforms, Bloomerang Volunteer offers the best flexibility to be as simple or complex as I need it to be when managing our volunteers.”
“The simplicity of the mobile app made a big difference, we trained everyone to click one button to check-in, and everyone seems comfortable with it no matter their age.”
