In recent decades, technology has played a major role in making “Only constant thing is Change” proverb true. Almost everything from our shopping to business platforms has shifted over the Internet. But one show business which hasn’t changed much is “Event Industry”. Einsteins of Event Industry don’t see many changes in this business in near future.
Let us decode their claims with the help of an example. Consider a conference event where think tanks gather around to discuss and share their views on a topic. Earlier these speakers used to share their ideas in a public gathering under a tree, in temple or in camp-fire. But in the 21st century, conference is handled in a bit different way. It is conducted in a conference hall or a classroom.
But the question which arises here is – what role has technology to play?
Well, the role that technology has to play is making these events bigger, better, engaging and entertaining is quite elaborate. Technology can be used in the form of microphone to reach out large audience or by any conference app to give detailed information to participants without any paperwork. The sole purpose of technology here is: To aid the conduction of events.
Another way in which technology can lay an aiding hand for event organizers is Event Application. These applications are becoming a bridge for speakers and attendees. The app can offer you whole new event options, and make your attendees fall for your event.
Here is how an event app can be a true friend in need:
Interaction at Next Level:
Paper- attendees hold them, read them, make airplanes and fly them. Ever tried your hand at Applications? With event applications, users feel engaged and welcomed. They can share their views on app and give feedback about future events, debate in the ongoing session and so much more. Overall, users feel like participants, rather than just a passive audience.
The Fun Side:
An event regarding any serious topic can be boring for audience sometimes. Attendees at that time need an injection of laughter and some fun activity to chuck off the overload.
Gaming options in app can be really helpful in this direction. It’ll develop a sense of competition among the audience and they can interact at some level. For example, organizing a quiz game in app will make the audience pay attention in your event and interact with each other.
Taking Event to Personal Level:
If at any point in the event, attendees start to feel that they’re just filling the crowd, it’ll be a big failure of event handlers. Event Apps can be used to make the evening experience personal.
Planners can use the app to learn about the interests of participants and arrange conference for groups sharing similar interests. Also, important information can be uploaded to the app server rather than just mass broadcasting it. Users can look up for the information which interests them, and can eliminate the rest.
An event is considered successful if attendees end up with an emotional note. The application can be used to eliminate the negative emotions and leave the audience with excitement, energy, and passion. The event which is successful in achieving this always ends up being memorable. Leaving your audience with “Feeling good” state is a sign of success of your event.
Add these elements and get the best out of your event application. Also, it would be absolutely great if you do a bit of reiki and know beforehand, what exactly your attendees want in an event or your next conference.
