Collect info of registrants online
Never make the mistake of making people fill out registration forms by hand. This can be done online and you only need to collect their information once. From there you can use that information to print their badges, personalize future conversations, compile data for marketing, and check-in attendees on-site or before the event. Provide a simple and secure way for registrants to pay online.
Don’t make them stand in line
Use the registration info that you’ve gathered to eliminate that pesky pre- event check-in. Don’t put your attendees through the hassle of waiting in line just to get inside your event. Use the registration process to gather all the information that you need and all payments reconciled before the event day.
Engage them via mobile
Utilize the mobile connections of attendees – whether thru smartphone, tablets, etc. – to provide them with updates regarding the event, reminders and changes in the schedule. Also provide your attendees easy access to materials regarding your event like live video streams and posts that they can easily share on their social media networks.
Consider a hybrid event where attendees can opt to join your event either physically or through online live streaming. Offer also a chance to watch the live stream of videos after the event and to be able to download event related materials.
