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.

We all know that for an event to be successful, you need attendees, and while it is easy to set up a Facebook event and invite everyone you know, having your guests click ‘yes’, ‘no’ or ‘maybe’ isn’t going to translate into actual attendance.

If you are searching up on “how to improve conversion rates on websites”, chances are that you are aware of how important a landing page is to your event, above social media marketing and EDMs.

If you’re responsible for organising a street procession, a public event or street carnival in your town or village, you have a duty to make sure that everyone – from participants to spectators – is safe and secure. A big part of the planning of the event must be focused on security. In this article, we set out some simple procedures that will help you run a safe event.

The MICE industry processes large amounts of personal data daily, be it new people registering as attendees, or professionals who subscribe to your mailing list to get more information. If the personal data is compromised and used without consent, your company is liable for not complying with the 9 main obligations of the Personal Data Protection Act (PDPA) in Singapore.

To help event professionals meet these obligations easily with their events, we have made GEVME 100% compliant with the PDPA. Our clients get a peace of mind when they receive new registrations for their events, and when they engage their attendees through email campaigns.

So how exactly does GEVME comply with the PDPA and make your job easier as an event planner?

Planning an event is certainly no easy task. A number of factors go into setting up a successful event – everything from the venue, date and time, to speeches, orators, and activities. These need to be decided on and organized in a synchronized manner.

However, one significant factor that acts as a bridge between planning an event and making the event successful is the registration process. Indeed, the effectiveness of the registration process determines how many people will actually turn into real attendees at your event.

Here are some best practices and tricks that you can adopt in order to design a seamless registration experience that your visitors will love.

Creating a landing page for events requires a certain amount of effort and a great deal of creativity. With so many event landing pages coming up on the web, it becomes quite challenging to have the best event landing pages for your event.

Personal data protection on the internet has always been a concern for many. When customers provide you with their personal details to be subscribed to your mailing list, or simply to download an eBook you’ve written, they aren’t completely sure if you might take advantage of their information.

To set protective measures in place for Singapore, the Personal Data Protection Act (PDPA) was passed by Parliament on 15th October 2012 to address this concern. The main goals of the act:

  1. To govern the use, disclosure, and care of personal data by private organizations
  2. To recognize the rights of individuals to protect their personal data

So what are the obligations for you as a Singapore-based organization to adhere to and provide that vote of confidence in your clientele?
