Using Forms to create a Data Mine

Long forms can often put off a potential attendee during the regisration process. Forms with dependency fields can help to eliminate this pain point based on a need-to-know concept based on the attendee profile. Join Thuyain as he explains how this can be done. {Tweet this}

Email is still the key Conversion Leader

Project Management in the Events industry is probably one of the toughest role in the Entire events set-up. It is also probably the most unglamourous yet most important role. So what makes a good Event Project Manager? Join Myat as he shares what are the best practices to adopt in Event Project Management. {Tweet this}
