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.
The venue of the future isn’t some far-out location with lights on the wall that respond to emotions, or futuristic decorations that create a “year 3000” feel for event attendees – the venue of the future is one that allows attendees to attend no matter where they are in the world, to avoid the cost and emissions of travel, to protect their lowered immune systems or care for young children or family members. The venue of the future is one where interactivity and engagement in sessions and networking have been provided for, and where they can get a similar experience to those able to attend the event physically. The event of the future is none other than… wherever in the entire world your guests choose to attend your event from!
