Enhance your guest experience and ensure your events leave a lasting impression by building an experience that includes:
6. Shower your guests with thoughtful swag items and gifts: Show appreciation to your guests with meaningful and sustainable event swag. Find take-aways that follow your event theme.
7. Embrace Technology: Most large event venues offer a variety of exciting event tech packages. These packages can include interactive displays, video work, holograms, and app integrations. You might also consider adding gamification elements to keep attendees engaged and to encourage exploration.
8. Align your event with a cause: Leverage nonprofit connections to encourage attendees to contribute. Showcasing your company’s charitable initiatives will help foster a sense of purpose.
9. Bring in captivating Keynote Speakers: Secure dynamic keynote speakers whose stories will resonate with your audience. Their topics can be aligned with the theme of your event. Hire a diverse range of speakers to cater to the various interests and backgrounds of your guests.
10. Have a post-event strategy: Stay top of mind beyond the event by sharing post-event content, including session recordings, presentation decks, and event recaps. Use their delivery as an opportunity to reconnect with attendees, and request a post-event survey to help you build better events year to year.
11. Provide activities for the senses: Invite local catering companies and restaurants to showcase their flair as part of the culinary portion of your event. Create interactive food stations that not only cater to diverse tastes, but also highlights the local cuisine. Food is always a great connecting experience!
After guests have dined to their delight, make plans to offer wellness and relaxation activities. Set up relaxation spaces, provide mindfulness sessions, or even treat guests to mini spa treatments to promote relaxation for all.
In today’s competitive business landscape, the success of your event or conference will hinge on the guests’ experience. Each element, from personalized invitations to the immersive decor, will play a pivotal role in leaving a lasting impression.
