    Attendee engagement:
    • Easily create mobile event apps to help your audience discover and consume real-time information and access content 

    Share your hack and how you network/connect with attendees at an event
    Using a mobile app has been super helpful to increase engagement. We use a combo of push notifications, surveys, and scavenger hunts to get attendees to engage with sessions, content, and speakers.

    Question for you: 

    • Which of the above tips do you find most helpful? Love learning more about managing speakers, sponsors and exhibitors in one place.
    • Share your hack and how you network/connect with attendees at an event. Mobile apps is our biggest way allowing us to communicate with attendees. We also set up tables at breakfast on different themes and topics to try and encourage networking with some of our top leaders.

    Hi there! Here are the tips I find most helpful:

    Plan and Promote 

    • Manage speakers, sponsors, and exhibitors in one place 

     

    Attendee Engagement 

    • Streamline the on-site experience with a modern, efficient check-in and badging 
    • Easily create mobile event apps to help your audience discover and consume real-time information and access content 

     

    Spend and Workflow 

    • Provide stakeholders with access to Cvent data and tools in one, easy-to-access place 

     

    *I also love giveaways. Anything that gets attendees talking and using the products is a good thing! Especially at a trade show! You have to have the coolest giveaway item that is a conversation started and gets attendees asking "where did you get that?"

    1. Which of the above tips do you find most helpful? 

    It's hard not to share that without Cvent, I wouldn't be able to do any of these item, so my tip is Cvent makes us all better planners!

    Plan and Promote
     

    • Attract and convert your audience with personalized marketing and fully branded websites 
    • Automate promotions and communications 
    • Manage speakers, sponsors, and exhibitors in one place 

    Attendee Engagement 

    • Streamline the on-site experience with a modern, efficient check-in and badging 
    • Easily create mobile event apps to help your audience discover and consume real-time information and access content 

    Spend and Workflow 

    • Collect meeting and event information and automated workflows

    Actionable Insights 

    • Capture insights across the entire attendee journey 
    • Collect feedback and gain insights you need to improve your business 

    2. Share your hack and how you network/connect with attendees at an event. 

    I utilize other professional connections to meet like-minded professionals or I just strike-up conversations with complete strangers at MPI or Connect events.

    • Which of the above tips do you find most helpful? 
      • Honestly, badges - they are a conversation starter, where they are from or what company they are with help our relationship managers build on those relationships.
    • Share your hack and how you network/connect with attendees at an event. 
      • Surveys and following up.
