The Latest Event Industry Insights

The engagement of attendees has always been one of the top priorities of event planning. Some questions that event organizers brood over:

  • What are the ways to keep an attendee interested?
  • How do you ensure attendees explore the different aspects of your event?

If there is very little (or no) form of interaction between attendees and your event, there’s a really high chance they’ll get bored and leave. Thankfully, we have so many event technologies at our disposal these days that event planners have to pick the right ones for the best outcome. It could be the use of different social media channels and a custom event mobile app to bring the whole event experience together. Maybe organizing a simple contest that involves the attendee from the start of event day till closing could do the trick. Whatever the method to engage your target audience, it has to be interesting.

Enter Kwaver, a mobile application that allows anyone to collaborate musically using just their phones. Yes, just their phones. So how can Kwaver work for your events?

Catering is vitally important for the health of most events. Good food brings people together, and caterers offer ready-made food for guests to enjoy. It’s not enough to just cater an event though, it needs to be catered exceptionally well. That means planning prep for the big event in detail. Consider the steps that must be completed and write them down. Assign jobs to specific team members. Plan everything out with time to spare, so completing the event with success is easy. One of the best ways to start your planning is by looking at a checklist for catering an event. Think of it as your basic inventory plan, and check off each item before leaving your kitchen on the big day.

Event management has changed dramatically in the last few years, especially as new technologies have emerged. Event software, when handled properly, can be a great help, but to be a truly exceptional event manager, one needs to be blessed with certain personal qualities.

It’s these special qualities – the 10 we’ve set out below – that distinguish a top quality event manager from one who is merely mediocre.

Large-scale business events and expos are excellent ways to introduce information to new people, to forge lucrative business relationships and to create a name for yourself as an event planner. Unfortunately, they are a bit chaotic and it’s tough to keep an eye on all the attendees throughout the day. It’s important to take measures to track where visitors are going during the day and to gather as much information about them during the visit as possible. This information makes it easy to create better events in the future and can help boost your business nicely.

As an event coordinator, it’s your job to bring people together and to give them the tools to communicate with one another. Give them the opportunity to forge new relationships and be more successful than they already are. This isn’t always an easy task, but accomplishing it makes you look really good, and it makes finding future work very easy. One of the key methods to getting all of this right is to create high-quality name badges for everyone at your events. This seems like such a minor detail in the big picture of event planning, but it’s actually a very big deal and something to take seriously. Here’s an overview of how to create a quality name badge. These do’s and don’ts will help you achieve results that will improve your success.

Running a fundraising event for a charity can be enormously rewarding as you raise money for a worthy cause. But unfortunately, when some people with good intentions try to fundraise they can forget to think about the legal issues. You need to follow procedures and guidelines to ensure the fundraising you are doing is all within the law.

Here are six legal issues you should consider before organising your event.

Event coordinators have an important job to complete and professionals all over the world are counting on them to help forge and build updated connections, bringing together businesses at their events and meetups. As a coordinator, it’s up to you to make sure that all the name badges attendees are wearing are designed carefully. If you make a serious mistake while designing these things, or you leave someone else in charge, then this may become a big mistake that will impact the effectiveness of your major event greatly. Here’s an overview of some common design mistakes that event coordinators make with their name badges.

In 2016, temporary structures and buildings found use in an incredible variety of events across the UK. At the legendary Glastonbury music festival, temporary buildings were used for everything from dressing rooms and ticket offices to first aid and lost & found tents. It could be argued that without the use of quality temporary structures, it would have been a much greater task to pull off the event.

We see this trend repeating itself across everything from film festivals and air shows to horticulture event and fairs. There is now a huge range of events that rely on temporary structures. But what has caused this shift towards the use of non-permanent buildings?
