    Event Wifi

    We cannot stress enough how important it is to make sure your event has enough WiFi coverage to handle a large group of attendees using multiple devices. You don’t want to overspend on access or features that you won’t need; however, it’s also critical that you purchase enough bandwidth to cover all attendees, agendas and production. This article from Endless Events will help you make sure you meet your attendees' WiFi needs.

    The Future of Post-Event Feedback

    Post Event FeedbackThis tweet was an attention grabber! We published an article on post-event feedback last year and it was one of the top post of the year - so we know this is a topic of relevance to meeting planners. The points raised in this specific post are worth considering because while it's important to get an understanding of attendee sentiment - there are other ways to do this that can complement the post-event survey, like in-app session ratings.
