Trends in Technology engagement
Events are part and parcel of a successful business. For you to carry out and have a successful event, it is essential that you seek the modern and trending technology engagements to make your event a success. Following are 6 trends in technology engagement that you should consider.
1. Connecting Attendees
Events will be attended by various people such as industry leaders and speakers, professionals and other interested parties. Technology has made it super easy for you to connect all the people who will be attending your event. For instance, you can use social media to create a presence online. This can be Facebook, Twitter or even LinkedIn. Using social media as a platform can give you the awareness you need for your events moving forward.
2. App Avoidance
Technology has made it extremely easy to connect and plan an event. However, you should watch out for unnecessary costs that will eat into your profits from the event. For instance, avoid use of Apps in single day events. Networking Apps such as Bizzabo and Connexme are great for several day events but if you have a single day event, stay away from them.
To make people want to attend your events, make it beneficial to them too. This can be done through the integration and use of their technology and products in synergy. This will not only uplift your business but theirs too, hence making them faithful partners in your events.
Once you get the attendees going in your event, your next job will be encouraging and ensuring that the attendees engage in the technology utilization. Ensure they are satisfied and willing to use the technology. Highlight special features and developments that will make them want to use it and even recommend it to other people.
5. Pre-event engagement
New and upcoming things often create excitement among the prospective users. For this reason, technology companies often communicate to the public on the upcoming product and some of its features. Similarly, ensure that you create a pre-event engagement with your prospective attendees. You can come up with hash tags to popularize and pre-inform attendees about your event. This creates the excitement and the need to attend the event.
6. Event Design
Of course, you will not get people to come to your event and then have poor presentation that will make them leave without knowing what they had come for. Ensure your event is engaging and has no room for boredom. Set up displays which will also encourage interactivity amongst the attendees. This will not only be fun, but will also help the attendees to share ideas about the technology.
