5 Tips for Using Technology for Better Events Experience
Technology has not only made the impossible possible, it has also turned what were once chores into mere trivialities. Of course, such ease afforded by technology is best used when it could make many people’s lives easier — in your events! Make any happening hassle-free by investing in these setups.
1. Extend your event’s reach via social media
Everyone attending your event has either a Facebook or Twitter account, but are you leveraging this properly? Do you have a good hashtag, and are you cultivating an active online conversation? Encourage people to post, and see how your event’s online audience grows!
2. RFID tags for ease of access
Radio-frequency identification is an affordable and very versatile piece of technology. The system can replace any number of pen-and-paper tasks, such as registration and check-in. You can also use RFID tags as a means of attendee participation for anything that happens in your event (particularly good if you’re holding a raffle!).
3. Live Streaming
Who says you need a professional videography team? Well, you do in case of once-in-a-lifetime events such as weddings, but if you’re holding a party, chances are you want everyone to see it without spending an extra dime. This is where live streaming services such as Facebook Live, Periscope, and more come in! Combine this with effective social media techniques and pretty soon you’ll be the talk of the town.
This is such a basic idea, but most people who organize events ignore its potential altogether! Lighting, even static set ups, can set the mood of a place. If you want to get fancy, you can shell out a bit more for lighting that automatically changes color and intensity based on various factors.
5. Use surveys
Pre- and post-event surveys can save you a lot of future headaches. You may, for example, use pre-event surveys to know what kind of food or activities attendees may want. You may even use it as an electronic RSVP. Post-event surveys can not only help you gauge attendee satisfaction, but also how you can do better in the future.
While the application of event technology will greatly depend on your use case, it can be safely said that choosing the right piece of tech can greatly change your event for the better. Do your homework, find options, and be creative!
