BigTent Design

Big Tent helps real-world groups move online. Designed for active organizations of 20 to 5,000 members, Big Tent eases administrative burdens on group leaders, which results in greater member participation, as well as long term growth and sustainability of the group.

The user-friendly interface provides many opportunities for groups and individual members to personalize their Big Tent experiences. This includes the ability to manage multiple groups and events through Big Tent’s integrated online calendar; participate in discussion forums; seek and offer recommendations, and buy and sell personal items via an online bazaar.

Launch DateOctober 29, 2008

BigTent is a web-based organization and communication portal for groups. Groups can plan events, manage memberships, host discussion forums, collect payments, and organize subgroups.

Nearly all functionality (e.g., forums) of BigTent is free. However, there is a small transaction fee to collect membership dues or event payments.

Examples of groups using BigTent are parenting groups, neighborhood groups, school groups, alumni and professional groups, and hobby groups.
