Here's a helpful event tech checklist to get you started: So You Want New Event Tech?

In-App Event Check In

Registering for and checking into an event can be cumbersome. The excitement you feel as an attendee can be easily overshadowed by waiting in long lines to receive your badge and rifling through registration papers. 

A state-of-the-art "check in" system shakes that up.

Social Media Campaigns

Using social media to promote your event is no longer an innovative idea; it's the norm. Event planners are expected to leverage this technology in the best way possible.

Instead of simply scheduling a series of posts across several platforms, unleash the potential of social media as an engagement solution. You can best accomplish this by having an activity feed encouraging user-generated content.

Activity Feeds

Static interfaces are a thing of the past. Attendees prefer real-time, contextual information. For that reason, feeds are wiping the floor with stagnant UI and design strategies. The added benefit of this approach is that it also allows you to read the temperature of the event while it unfolds.

Location Services

Location services refers to the family of unique features available thanks to bluetooth beacons. These include indoor mapping (think of it as GPS for your venue) and personalized, contextual communications.

Imagine guests receiving a welcome message greeting them by name the instant they arrive at the event. Such a notification may contain instructions for registration. Or, perhaps when a guest is near a particular convention center booth, a notification pops up on their smartphone enticing them to stop by. With this technology, it’s possible to build a truly interactive experience tailored to each guest.

You know collecting data is necessary to building better events and staying ahead of the competition. But simply asking guests to fill out a survey at the end of your event isn’t enough.

A smart mobile app will collect information before, during, and after attendees are on-site. Then, the insights are distributed to your entire team - easily accessible in perpetuity.
