The Latest Event Industry Insights

Want to start an event planning business and thinking it will be incredibly difficult? Well, do not get stressed. I’m happy to inform you it’s not true, but with a small note — PASSION. That’s the mysterious key to success. You have to love what you do. Period.

Steve Jobs said, “The only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work, and the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking, and don’t settle.”

Making sure that you are compliant with the Personal Data Protection Act (PDPA) in Singapore as an individual isn’t so difficult once you’ve set the necessary infrastructure in place. What if you have different departments in your company that also have to follow these obligations as well due to the nature of their function?

Let’s look at the three steps required to ensure these obligations are adhered to across your company where it’s relevant.

So, you have successfully created an event website and you are seeing people register for your event like you expected. However, the problem is, the event is not going to be held until next month.

It is highly likely that your attendees may forget about the event even after registering — and do not show up eventually. This is definitely not what you want. So, is there something that you can do to tackle the problem?

An event reminder email is just the thing you need.

We’re pleased to announce that we’re launching the new Customizable Predefined Fields feature. Predefined Fields are, by themselves, a key and powerful feature of GEVME and essential when it comes to the synchronization of data between your various data collections, e.g. between invitees, attendees, buyers, and contacts. They are going to be even more powerful now by being upgraded to be extensible and customizable. That means that you can now create your own preferred customized predefined fields.

Audience response systems (ARS) are a great interactive tool to help boost the appeal and effectiveness of presentations and conferences, training events and business meetings of any kind. The little handheld keypads enable audience feedback or voting to take place quickly and anonymously, with the results available immediately via the software installed on your IT system.

Most suppliers of ARS equipment offer a choice of purchase or rental agreements – so should you buy or should you hire?

Organizing award events can be tedious, what with having to manage entrant submissions and coordinating judges at the same time. Fortunately, you can now do so via an online platform to bring most of the necessary processes together in one place, allowing you to easily manage and organize your award event.

Introducing Judgify, an integrated end-to-end online awards judging system that simplifies your awards management experience. This cloud solution easily compliments the events you organize on GEVME that have tie-ins with awards.

So how does it work?

With events making up as much as 35 percent of the marketing budget for many companies, you can expect to be held accountable by the C-suite for proving its effectiveness, including ROI. Sure, you know exactly how many leads you collected, but how do you determine how many of them are qualified? With that metric out of play, how do you measure your events marketing effectiveness?

Here are the top 4 methods of finding relational data about your event and capturing valuable insight.
