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.
Best Podcasts for Event Professionals
They make a fair statement at the beginning of this article that "it seems everybody and their brother has a podcast today" - which is all the more reason why we need this list from G2 Planet! They've curated a list of the top podcasts focused on event tech all worth a listen.
Promoting Your Event with Social Media
We've talked a lot about using social media to promote your event. We recently came across this list on the Corporate Event News blog which had a few new ideas we hadn't considered or written about before, including "reveals" to get attendees excited. This post is a quick read and well worth the time given the specific ideas shared.
Choosing Event Venues
This stat has been all over the webiverse, it's a notion that many thought might be true but, thanks to research conducted by the Event Manager Blog, we know have hard facts. This came from an overall study that goes in depth on choosing event venues and looks at themes like innovation and design, sustainability, in addition to transparency. You can get a copy of the report here - it's chock full of great information and facts.
The Future of Post-Event Feedback
This 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.
