The social media platform you may be forgetting for your event

Are you using Snapchat for your events?

Snapchat is perhaps the trendiest social media platform at the moment.

Best yet, you can personalise it for your event in the most fun way.

Snapchat allows you to use your very own branded photo and video filters.

And it couldn’t be simpler.

Just go online and look for a company that can make the filter for you.

They’ll show you plenty of examples and give you ideas if you need some inspiration.

Then put your filter up on Snapchat for your guests to use at your event.

Best of all you can use it to promote your event in the area and to related industries.

Snapchat is hugely under-utilised for conferences and events right now.

So be the event to do things a little differently.

A simple way to make guests feel welcome

I’ve written many times about the importance of making each and every one of your guests feel welcome and at home at your conference.

My interactive roving magic is designed specifically for that.

But there are many ways to include all guests and one of the most important these days is your menu.

With dietary requirements rapidly changing it’s no longer an option whether to have a diverse menu of vegetarian, vegan and gluten free.

And not just for mains, but also for entrees and desserts.

When guests are describing how great your event was you want no ‘buts’.

So be sure nobody will say ‘the venue was great, the speakers were great, the entertainment was great (why thankyou 🙂 BUT there was nothing for me to eat.

Get them saying, ‘EVERYTHING was great, and their menu had everything I wanted’!

Turn everything at your event into a show!

I’ve written before about what conferences can learn from theatre to create the most engaging event.

You can turn EVERYTHING into a SHOW.

Movie-style video trailers to introduce your speakers. The right music and mood lighting to build anticipation.

Now we get to one of the most important elements of your event – the food.

What’s one of the biggest genres of entertainment at the moment? Cooking shows! People love them! Use that to engage your guests.

Lots of catering companies offer interactive food preparation.

You ask for what you want and they whip it up for you right there with style and showmanship.

Best of all – the food is great.

Just remember – everything at your event can be a show!
