Webinar: The Attendee Experience: Making Your Show Count
April 19 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pmFree
Many meeting professionals are conservative and slow to adapt to new methods. But organizations that aren’t comfortable with the risk required to deliver a fresh approach may be left behind. If you aren’t adapting, participants may simply zone out, or worse, stop attending entirely. Today, attendees of all ages expect and react positively to novelty and deviation from routine events with a focus on originality and unique experiences. Planners need to understand the importance of venue, room set and food choices alongside content to bring attendees something new that will have a greater impact and be more memorable. They must be focused on quality both in and out of the meeting room with engaging and interactive learning experiences throughout the meeting including sessions, networking and down time.
