a conference can be time-consuming and stressful. With so many balls to
juggle at once it is a wonder that everything gets done in time.
However the last few years have seen the rise of numerous tools that can
be invaluable weapons in a conference planners arsenal when looking to
save time and money. Here’s a run down of five great tools to try when
organising your next event.
If you’re running
an event that requires online registration and ticketing, then
Eventbrite is a must. It allows you to create an event sign up webpage
that can be accessed on any device, with inbuilt functionality to accept
online payments, marketing tools and easy to use analytics packages to
monitor event registration.
Evernote is a
fantastic note taking application that works across multiple devices,
allowing you to store text, images and videos all in cloud storage,
accessible (and easily searchable) anywhere. It’s a great place to put
all those random notes that you suddenly realise you need the week
before your event but can never find!
3. Virtual Venue Visit
a venue for your conference can be time consuming, taking days out of
the office to scope potential event spaces. Virtual Venue Visit hosts
video tours of major conference venues in the UK, allowing you to get a
great perspective on a venue’s rooms without even leaving the office.
4. Google Analytics
care of event registration through your own website? Then Google
Analytics will allow you to track all successful sign ups, giving you
detailed data on exactly where your delegates are coming from. This
information will help to refine your marketing strategy, targeting only
the channels that are driving conference registrations.
tool is useful for small events where you already know who will be
invited, but need to find a date that suits everyone. It allows you to
select a range of potential dates for your event and send an email to
invitees, where they can then jump on Doodle and mark the dates that
they are available.
