Employee Recognition

How To Make Live Events Remarkable

Include Valuable Keepsakes

Event mementos are so popular to make your event memorable.  Business keepsakes like live screen printing on office supplies and accessories are compelling reminders of the event.  Printed T-shirts, caps, and umbrellas are effective walking advertisements for the company.

These keepsakes will remind event participants of your key presentations every time they see them, even after the program. And these will be useful in promoting the event to curious non-attendees who might be interested in finding out what it’s all about.

These tokens will be like distributing prizes to those who attended the event.

Organize Event Prizes

Prizes will always attract the attention of participants. The prior announcement of awards to those who can correctly answer trivia questions after each presentation is highly effective at capturing participants’ attention. Even if they do not receive a prize, visitors will remember who won and what they received as a prize.

In the event, some companies provide door prizes and raffle draws for their event participants to ensure that everyone is present from the beginning to the end.  And it will add excitement and fun to the party’s program.

Conduct Timely Program

The live presentations must be conducted in a timely and organized fashion. Aside from making it enjoyable, each show segment should run as close to its allowed time as is reasonably practical. Being punctual will make the audience admire the tenacity of the organizers and the business. 

Timeliness will also avoid boredom and listlessness in the participants.  When event participants are bored, they will think of every excuse not to attend next time. And they will even start gossiping about the event and it may threaten your company’s reputation.

Gather Participant Assessment

Never miss a single comment, no matter how positive or negative. Distribute satisfaction survey questionnaires. Use engaging and brief questions about the event’s overall performance.  And also ask for the level of satisfaction and their suggestions for potential improvements.

These evaluations will assist you in avoiding those portions of the event that receive lousy feedback. And these will also help you plan a more exciting and enjoyable corporate event in the future.  It may even make you decide to hire a professional organizer for your next event.

Plan Next Event

The planning period for the following event should begin immediately following the conclusion of the current event.  Discuss the successes and the weaknesses of the concluded event to be able to plan an event to remember the next gathering.  Preparing for the next event in advance will also save you time and work in the long run.
