U#GLH2019 is using Hivebrite as its community and registration platform for hosts and participants.  Hivebrite is an all-in-one SaaS solution that helps businesses around the world build and manage their own community website.

The platform allows organizations to create a community website with a private portal for their members to interact, and to manage their community by collecting memberships, creating events, sharing opportunities, and sending communication campaigns. 
In order to get the full Hivebrite experience, users must follow a 3-step process:
  1. Register on the Hivebrite platform.
  2. Join a group (city or GROWL).
  3. Register for events in that group.
