10 Small Details That Ensure a Huge Impact at Your Event

10 Small Details That Ensure a Huge Impact at Your Event

Venue Floor Plan 

Design a venue floor-plan that helps provide details about all entry, exit, charging points, and access to conveniences. A copy of this floor-plan should be included within the event paraphernalia given to all attendees. These tiny details help make the event more organized and at the same time provides attendees all information regarding what they require, saving them the trouble of finding an event coordinator any time they require something.

On – Ground Team Recruit your friendliest, most knowledgeable employees to remain scattered throughout the venue so someone is always available to answer attendee questions — and make sure they stand out! For example, your employees can wear company badges attached to their shirt pockets. People will have lots of questions. Making it easy to find and identify event point persons will thrill attendees and nip frustration in the bud.  

Welcome and Survival Kit

A welcome packet that includes a map, nearby places to eat, local activities, taxi or car service contact information, and emergency phone numbers accompanied by Hand Sanitizers, Protein Bars, a mini first-aid kit, Chocolates and an Energy Drink goes a long way in terms of appreciative value and makes guests feel like royalty. Many attendees may be coming from out of town, and this would help them feel at ease navigating a new city or location.

Lounge Area

Designate an area where people can lounge around, have one-on-one discussions, check their email, and make phone calls. This should ideally be space where people can escape the conference and be free to deal with any tasks they might have at hand. Doing this will prevent attendees from leaving the event when they need a break and will help avoid the risk of them not coming back.

 

ID Tags with Lanyards and Jackets

There should be a clear distinction in the ID Cards given to different people at the event; you should differentiate between partners, sponsors, VIP,customers and company employees. It will make the attendees feel special to be part of a group, recognized for their relationship with your company, and easier to network with others who are part of their group.

Lights Control

Lighting during events has an unbelievable impact on the mood of the audience attending, the key is to always make sure the light is just right for every session taking place. For example, during a presentation the lights should be dim but at the same time bright enough for people to take notes or during a cocktail reception the lights should be ambient helping people relax. We always recommend that your clients should control all event lighting from the console and have preset combinations for every segment of a particular event.

 

Pre-Event Follow-Up

After invitations have been sent and RSVP done, it can be advisable to have a calling unit doing a round of calls to the invitees asking them if they need any help making their bookings or any help with regards to them attending. All queries should be noted and duly acted upon. This goes a long way in invitees feeling special and ensures there are minimal drop-outs.

Post Event Follow-Up

After the event, it is a good practice to have the same calling unit do a round of calls to all who attended asking for their feedback and providing them access to the presentations from the event.This helps keep in touch with customers well after the event is completed and helps keep them posted on any other initiatives you might be planning.

Social Media

Provide real-time updates on sessions and presentations from your event on available media like Facebook, Twitter and the event website. Let people sign-up with their information and access the event live on the event website as it happens, this would help reach a wider audience, and if people cancel, alert them of the opening. Also generating hype of the event on all available media before the event happens would help reach a wider audience. Concentrated email marketing campaigns to a broad audience can play a big part.

Effective Registration Process

Registration is a thorn in everyone’s side — attendees and conference organizers. Having a minimum of two people at the registration desk helps carry out registrations with ease. One person ticks out the persons name from the list, the second person hands over the id card and collects the persons visiting card. Alternately, what we recommend to clients is to set-up an online registration portal, to help ease out the process of pre-event registration and RSVP.
