Being able to attend an entire event virtually felt very futuristic until a few months ago when tech improved dramatically and new health situations encouraged us to change our view on traditional events. So, we have great news (and a solid solution for event planners that still need their events), with some attendees hesitant to travel or unable to be (physically) in one place all together.
We have reviewed research and blogs, articles and white papers on what makes certain events – some from more than 10 years back – stand out above all the rest. We’ve taken some of those, together with our favourite ideas in the events industry and smashed them all together to give you insight into the recipe that makes your events become favourites amongst your guests, with increased attendance and sky-high reviews. Whether your event is corporate or casual, it will be one that will definitely get attention. Common themes include emotions, networking with like-minded people to create connections, and incorporating a pleasant, unexpected surprise.
