The Latest Event Industry Insights

Events are about connecting, and to get people through the door you first have to connect with them through an event website or a promotional campaign. To keep your audience engaged during the event, you will have to foster connections through mobile apps or other onsite tools. These can also be used to capture honest feedback and understand behaviours by connecting with guests through surveys.

We all know how hard it can be to find the right venue for an event. The options seem endless, and more often than not, the never-ending list can be overwhelming. As possibly the hardest decision in event planning, choosing the right venue is one of the most important factors in making your event a hit. You could continue throwing money at your event, but if the venue is poorly chosen, the entire success of your event is at stake.

A few years ago, the owners of a flash sale site, Doggyloot, discovered that there is a correlation between the type of dog and the purchasing behaviour of its owner. To test their theory, Doggyloot decided to start segmenting their existing clients based on the age and size of the dogs that they owned. They asked people to fill in a quick survey, asking them about their dogs’ birthdays and sizes. Based on these insights, Doggyloot built three email lists that began targeting their customers with different messages. What do you think happened? There was a 750% CTR increase.
