The Power of Live
Wake Up Your Venue Sourcing with Technology and Innovative Strategies
Your preferred venues, favourite hotels and selection processes – is this really enough to keep up with increasing client demand, a need to reduce costs and maximise opportunities and choice?
Everything from farms to castles, to conference centres or exhibition spaces, the options available to event organisers are diverse. Some venue requirements such as price or location will forever persist, but improved technology and connectivity plus adventurous delegates has created a more exciting selection process than ever before.
In our final Power of Live focus, we will look at shaping up and kick starting a new chapter in today’s event planner’s venue sourcing strategy.
In the fourth part of our series, the focus is on the live event. We’ll be looking at how events can inspire, engage and create truly unique experiences for delegates.
Our webinars and expert reports will reveal strategies to deliver a seamless first impression at arrivals, build interactive experiences and why gamification has become the buzzword of the events industry.
For the organiser, the ability to track and stay in real-time contact with delegates and attendees is the foundation for creating an agile and dynamic event experience. Plus, a good on site technology solution can provide invaluable data to measure an event’s success.

In the third part of our series, we will be investigating how using an event management platform can increase productivity and reduce costs. It is no secret that an event planner must have an ‘always on’ attitude, as they deal with an endless ‘to do’ list before the live date. To succeed, therefore, organisers must have a concrete understanding of their progress and budgets, whilst having insight into how to maximise the impact of their next move.
Over the next two months, The Power of Live will look at the current systems and processes being employed by event organisers. In turn, with the help of expert guests, we will share the ways in which organisations are leading in this area. This will include how to increase attendance, improve marketing response rates, track budget vs. actual costs, and streamline marketing.

In the second part of our series, we turn our attention to the world of apps. Your attendees (and, indeed, all of us) are spending on average 2 hours 42 minutes on their mobile devices, of which 2 hours 19 minutes is down to app usage. Having an event app is no longer just ‘nice to have’, instead your attendees are beginning to expect it.
This series, produced in partnership with Cvent, will give you proven insights into how to take your live events to the next level. Through a range of webinars, eBooks, surveys and expert reports we will bring you the latest thinking and best practice on everything from social media through to Apps and event marketing strategies.
