STANDOUT: Place Your Business in the Spotlight with Results-Driven Events
When you have a local repeat event with a consistent audience, it’s easy to get comfortable and rely on tactics that have worked before. However, if you want to keep your audience’s attention and attendance, it’s critical to revamp, refresh and rejuvenate your show.
Last week at the Heroes Luncheon in Tampa, we spruced up the atmosphere in a variety of ways. Already, we’ve received phenomenal feedback, and here are some of the key tactics we used. Apply them to your next repeat event, and watch your audience crave more!
Yesterday, I was talking to group of planners at the University of South Florida, and we touched on the topic of inconsistent attendance from year to year. Many of us have been there—one year you have 500 guests and the next you have 300 RSVPs. How do you retain and gain guests? We have a simple, 5-minute mental process for you that will boost your guest experience and have them returning – with their friends and colleagues!
Before you even start to plan your event –there is one trick you need that will help you to maximize your return on investment. Do this, and every detail you plan thereafter will have a greater impact on your target audience.
You must think like a guest.
To help you develop the experience, put yourself in your guests’ shoes – or high heels for an elegant occasion. Make sure that you are designing an event that reflects your brand mission.
