event-registration-software-seminar.jpgWe all want the right people to attend our events, but making sure this happens can often be a delicate and time consuming process. How you invite guests, remind them about your upcoming event and confirm their attendance all need to be skilfully managed if you want to ensure that each and every one of your guests is truly invested in your event or brand. You see, there is an art to RSVP management, especially if you are dealing with busy and high profile people.

What do the wrong guests look like and what can we do to limit or convert them?

Considering all the work you put into pulling off a flawless event experience, there is nothing quite as frustrating as a guest list that then gets ‘top-heavy’ with guests who aren’t interested in what you have to offer.  These are the guests who confirm their attendance but then don’t make it, or who decline your invitation and then show up anyway. Worse still, are the guests who bring along an unexpected entourage (that you are then expected to accommodate), or who are just there for the freebies, time off work, or travel and tourism opportunities. You know that guests like these equate to a limited ROI. The question then is if there is any way to limit these ‘lukewarm’ brand ambassadors from attending your event or, better still, converting them from lukewarm to piping hot?  

Our Event Registration Software helps you track guest list information to differentiate sure-fire, brand ambassadors from the rest

A certain number of noncommittal or ambivalent guests on your guest list are to be expected. The RSVP Agency’s Event Registration Software, can, however, help you to categorise guests according to their RSVPs as well as subsequent event attendance or non-attendance. You can use our product to collect guest information and, from this, develop a good idea of how best to target each guest during future event planning. Key features of our Event Registration Software include:

  • Database integrity checks and clean-up, which removes duplicates, identifies missing information and alerts you about invite bounces, accepts or declines for follow-up.
  • Our call down service to guests who have not responded to their electronic invitations. This ensures that non responsive guests have the chance to be fully briefed about the upcoming event and then safely removed from your list if it becomes apparent that they are not interested in attending.

You ultimately want to invite guests to your event who are going to become great brand ambassadors.

event checklist

 

When it comes to your event planning checklist, dotting your i’s and crossing your t’s involves far more than making sure you event is well attended, or that your key note speaker is booked well in advance. The legal aspects of event planning are vast, and if ignored, can have serious consequences for all involved. By including these in your event planning checklist, you’re safeguarding yourself, your guests and any vendors from potential danger – whether physical or reputational in nature.

Your event planning checklist serves as a map, directing you and your staff towards a successful – and compliant – event

First things first; prepare and school yourself on all elements that require some form of compliance. (Reading this blog is an excellent start.) Finding out at the last minute that your event doesn’t have sufficient health and safety plans in place is less than ideal, so avoid any unpleasant surprises by evaluating your event from beginning to end. Every event will have different requirements as far as compliance is concerned. If just one of these is overlooked (by accident or on purpose), the ramifications can be dire.

Your event planning checklist needs to cover the following eight aspects of event compliance:

  • General Safety and Fire Prevention
  • Liability and Insurance
  • Electrical Procedures and Requirements
  • National Building Regulations for Temporary Structures
  • Safe Working Practices; Gas/and or Naked Flame Application and Usage
  • Rigging Guidelines; Ladders and Scaffolding

Conducting a safety assessment of your venue needs to be at the top of your event planning checklist

In order to identify any possible safety hazards, both the organiser (that’s you) and the contractor (if you’re building a temporary structure like a free-standing bar, stage or Bedouin tent) need to inspect the entire venue. Once you’ve thoroughly evaluated and pin pointed any potential red-flags, you’ll be able to draw up a Disaster Management Plan. As well as equipping yourself with a plan should an incident occur, this will act as an important safeguard against any legal action that may result should an incident occur.

A Disaster Management Plan is only compliant once it’s been approved by the local Disaster Management Centre (DMC) and the local Fire Safety Officer

Your event planning checklist must prioritise the compilation of your Disaster Management Plan, as well as contacting and obtaining approval from the relevant parties. Make sure you’ve set adequate time aside to compile an exhaustive and detailed plan – as stipulated in the South African National Standards (SANS) 10366: Standard for Live Events.

Importantly, your event planning checklist must include steps to document all of your event compliance procedures

Going to all the trouble of ensuring all aspects of your event are compliant is moot if you don’t have the documentation in place to prove it. In addition, without written proof that all parties involved in your event (your suppliers, vendors and contractors) are competent and dedicated to following best practice when it comes to health and safety (including theirs) – you can be held liable should any incident occur. In addition, make sure your event planning checklist includes a full brief of all role-players before the event – this will ensure that everyone is informed of their responsibilities, as well as aware of the procedures to follow in case of an accident or emergency.

Last but not least, make sure that you’ve included steps to ensure that the handling and storage of all guest information is POPI-compliant

This oft-neglected task is a pivotal part of event compliance. You need to make sure that the information your privy to (for example, names, occupations, demographics, etc.) is safely stored and managed in a way that’s in line with the stipulations as set out by the Protecting of Personal Information Act. This includes ensuring that all content management systems (yes, even your smartphone) are password protected, and that you notify the guest in questions as to your intentions for processing their data. (Read the full run down of your responsibilities as set out by the Act in our blog here.)

event-registration-software If your event registration is little more than an after-thought, listen up! Many corporate event planners unwittingly put their event registration last on their to-do list. After all, securing a venue, strategising and implementing a social media marketing plan, as well as working closely with vendors are the most crucial aspects that need to be addressed right off the bat, right? Wrong. If you’re guilty of the latter, read on to learn why your event registration process should be the first thing you tackle when coordinating a corporate event. (Your event marketing strategy will thank you.)

An event is nothing without its attendees. If you don’t have a guest-centric, superior registration process in place, you’ll be left with an empty venue.

In other words, you need to make sure that guests can register as easily as possible for your event in order to get them through the door – and launch your entire event marketing strategy. Many corporate events rely on pre-registration or on-site self-check in, but fail to give these the required amount of attention. The result? Lacklustre attendance rates and guests left with a bad taste in their mouth – rendering all other event marketing efforts moot. Before you go about implementing the rest of your event marketing plan, make sure that your event registration is set up in such a way that makes the process as painless as possible (for you and your guests).

Registering for an event – whether online or in the flesh – is one of the very first interactions your guests have with your brand. In order for an event marketing plan to succeed, this needs to be a positive one.

If you’re holding an event to woo potential customers, you need to do everything in your power to convey the right message right from the start. Having them wait in long lines, or attempt to navigate a confusing online registration form negates even the most innovative event marketing efforts – way before people have even set foot in your event.

Your guests are already forming an opinion of your brand as they register; a seamless, simplified experience is essential if you want to make this a good one.

Your registration process should facilitate these three key qualities: ease of use, interactive and streamlined.

Just like all other aspects of an event marketing plan, after registering for your event, your guests need to feel valued and respected. Alienating them by having them struggle with complicated form fields or endure a substantial wait in line will only ensure one thing: that any other event marketing aspects they come into contact with will be entirely ineffective.  A good litmus test is by testing out your registration process yourself. Ask yourself: is the page user-friendly? Can the self-check in function be easily navigated? If you’re conducting on-site registration via the use of concierges, make sure all check-in staff are thoroughly trained to provide guests with a smooth and professional experience.

Effective event marketing hinges on getting your timing right; so too does event registration

If you want to strike while the proverbial iron is hot, you’ll need to time your registration process perfectly. Open any online registration too early, and guests will end up putting it off until it’s too late. Open registration too late, however, and guests will already have other events diarised. Make sure that you’re allowing enough time for guests to RSVP, but that the window of opportunity is narrow enough for attendees to feel like they need to register as soon as possible.

Get your event marketing plan off to a winning start by making use of event registration software

Getting smart about event registration is a whole lot easier when you’re equipped with the right tools. Using intuitive, cloud-based software will enable you to conduct on-site registration (as well as offer guests a self-check-inn option) that runs smoothly and sets the right tone for the event to come. Making use of event registration software doesn’t just aid your registration – it enables you to collect vital guest data that’s crucial for constructing an event experience that resonates.

If you’re using event registration software, congratulations! You’re on your way to creating world class events. While event management software can take your events from zero to hero, you do need to be equipped with the necessary know how to get the most out of your software.  We’re by no means suggesting that you need to be a tech guru, but a little know-how goes a long way. We’ve compiled six tips to help you maximise on the tool at hand.

1. Keep your registration forms short

Ever attempted to buy something online, only to be met with a checkout process that’s so laborious you abandon your cart in frustration? Event registration forms are no different. No one wants to fill out lengthy forms, which means that in order to set the right tone from the get go, you need to make this task as easy as possible for guests. Short and sweet wins, hands down.

2. Personalise event reminders

With the relevant data at your fingertips, there’s no excuse for generic reminders. Nothing puts a person off more than feeling like a nameless number on a list. The beauty of event registration software, however, is that you can easily segment your guest lists according to the people who’ve RSVP’d yes, and those who haven’t yet responded. Personalise your follow-ups accordingly – this goes a long way in demonstrating that each and every guest is important to you – and will help to increase attendance rates as a result.

3. Include the five Ws in your invitations

The five Ws – who, what, why, when and where – don’t only apply to journalistic best practice, but to event invitations too. Make sure you’re not leaving guests in the dark by including all the relevant logistical information about the event. Remember that a guest should never have to work to obtain information about an event.

4. Include an incentive in your invitations

Merely including the whys and whens in an invitation won’t result in a stellar attendance rate. Your invitation has to excite your guests, clearly indicating the ways that attending your event will benefit them. No one wants to go to a run-of-the-mill event; your guests need to be incentivised in order to show up. Bear in mind that because the benefit of your event is bound to be an intangible one, you’ll need to use convincing copy to illustrate this.

5. Don’t neglect the power of verbal communication

When coupled with the power of your event registration software, reaching out and calling a guest who hasn’t RSVP’d lends a personal, and much appreciated touch to their event experience. Use this opportunity to get to know your guests – any additional information you glean from the call can be saved in your data repository – adding another layer of insight that can be used to build a personalised event that really resonates.

6. Make your guests feel memorable

One of the most useful functions of event registration software is that it allows you to build up an in-depth profile of your guests. The next time you invite them to an event, as well as addressing them by name, demonstrate the fact that you remember them by confirming if their personal information is still relevant. Leverage off the power of event registration software by making use of the information it allows you to collect.

Event registration might just be the tip of the event planning iceberg, but it’s one of the most important parts of organising a mind-blowing event. With no guests, there’s no event. Getting people to sign up for your event can be tricky – especially as your online invitations can get lost in the maelstrom of emails in the inboxes of your invitees. People’s schedules are often jam packed and deciding whether or not they’ll attend an event might be made in a split second. Here are four steps you can take to make sure that split second decision is the right one.

1) Give your brand’s biggest fans the rewards they deserve

If you are putting on an annual event, be sure to send out invites to the guests who attended last year’s function, as soon as the date is confirmed. Even if the finer details of the day are not confirmed, telling the supporters of your past events well before anyone else will make them feel appreciated – and they might even help you spread the word. Offer them early-bird pricing on tickets, VIP access to your event or even a special offer on some of your products to make them feel valued for their commitment to your brand. Make event registration as easy and appealing as posible for them. They might well turn into your best brand advocates.

2) Harness the power of social media platforms to target those you know are interested in the same things

LinkedIn in a godsend when it comes to promoting your upcoming function. It allows you tap in to a huge number of potential guests that goes over and above your company database – as well as their connections. LinkedIn groups, events and company pages let you target people by industry and areas of interest: if you promote your event within these circles, chances are it won’t fall on deaf ears. The beauty of social media is how easy it is to share information. The conversations generated around your event online are great  publicity, too.

3) It’s no longer all or nothing when it comes to attending events

One barrier to event registration is whether your potential guests can attend the event from start to finish. If your function is a several hour affair, made up of networking drinks, speeches, seminars, entertainment and dinner, it may take up an entire day or evening. By dividing the event into one to two hour slots and then offering different attendance options, you open up a whole new group of people who could potentially attend. Each guest who registers can then be allocated their own unique QR code which grants them access to their chosen part of the day or evening. This can also double as a parking pass or way to get into different areas of your venue. This personalised approach to event registration will instil a feeling of exclusivity in your guests – which can only do wonders for how they feel about your brand.

4) Entice your guests with the propsect of the entertainment in store at your event

Everybody loves to be entertained, as well as informed. Your event will likely have something interesting and unique about it that can be leveraged when sending out event registration emails. Highlight whether a key note speaker at the event is a leader in their field or if a popular singer will be performing. Perhaps your function will be having a Mexican food theme or have its bar sponsored by a notable wine farm. The venue you are holding your event at might have some historical significance or be situated in a particularly beautiful location. All of these factors will help to grab the attention of those invited.

Boosting your event registration doesn’t have to fill you with worry and dread. By getting into the minds of your invitees and using online invitations and technology to your advantage, you’ll no longer have to fear a half empty room. Find out more about our Event Management Software, here.

An oft-neglected element of corporate events are the registration systems used. Unfortunately, this is to the detriment of many a brand or company. A large portion of event organisers focus solely on the décor, venue, entertainment etc. – neglecting the fact that if their registration process is chaotic, even the most breath-taking venue or mouth-watering catering won’t be able to save an event.

Ultimately, the way your event is run determines its success. In order to conduct an event that’s smooth-sailing as opposed to a bumpy ride, you’ll need sophisticated registration tools at your disposal.

Here are the top four reasons why you can’t afford not to use sophisticated registration tools:

1. Streamline your event.

Instead of having to manually search through printed lists – which in the case of a corporate event can often run into the hundreds – a digital registration tool not only aides your event organisers but reduces the amount of time your guests have to spend in a queue. By running a streamlined, efficient registration or check-in, you’re setting the tone for the rest of the event, which means that it’s crucial that you start off on the right foot.

2. Ensure guests’ security.

Many corporate events entail high-profile guests. A burly bouncer and visible security might seem like a good idea, but human error can result in security being breached. If you’re using a registration tool that works with a QR scanner, the safety of your guests is that much superior. If a guest doesn’t have the designated QR code on their invitation or phone, they won’t be able to access restricted areas. In addition, there won’t be any instances of a non-invited guest impersonating a legitimate invitee.

3. Position your brand as technologically innovative and professional.

The aim of a corporate event is to elevate your brand’s positioning. It’s logical then, that every single facet of your event needs to point to the fact that your brand or company is an industry-leader. You’d never serve the main course at a VIP banquet on paper plates, so why use out-dated, inefficient registration tools? Replacing a clipboard and reams of paper with cutting-edge, intuitive tools that run on an iPad, tablet or mobile not only ensures a streamlined registration process, but demonstrates the professionalism of you brand too. In turn, your brand equity is amplified.

Sophisticated registration systems not only elevate the overall management and success of an event, they enable you to gain invaluable insight into your guests. Because QR codes control access, and include details such as the time a guest entered a venue, the specific areas they accessed and the duration of time spent in each section – you’re able to gather vital information about your guests.

4. When combined with RSVP software, detailed data can be gathered about your guests.

We’ve spoken before about the vital role that a thorough understanding of your target market – in this case – your guests – plays in your marketing efforts. The brands that understand their audience are able to offer relevant brand offerings, specifically tailored towards their target market. As a result, companies who have an in-depth understanding of their consumers are those who enjoy increased brand advocacy and loyalty. The more information you’re able to collect about your guests, the easier it is to create an event that resonates.

Planning and managing any event registration can be a tiresome affair. Too often, event managers focus on the actual event, resulting in a poorly-planned registration process that leaves guests feeling irritated before they’ve even set foot inside.  A streamlined check-in is pivotal for setting the tone of an event, but getting this right can leave even the most seasoned event planner frazzled. Fear not, we’ve put together our tips to help you keep your cool the next time you’re tasked with overseeing an event registration.

Simplify the process by giving your guests the option to pre-register

Not only will this considerably speed up the registration process on the day, it’ll also up your RSVP rates. If guests know that they won’t have to stand in long queues, or wait around as their colleagues check-in, they’re more likely to accept your invite. Including clear instructions on your invitations that allow guests to quickly reply and then register makes for a hassle-free registration that positions your event in a professional light.

Always allow more time than necessary

Just like some people prefer to physically check themselves in at the airport, some of your guests will opt to register on the day. Hiccups are inevitable, so make sure that you’ve allotted more than enough time for the process, in order to avoid late starts and disgruntled guests. An event registration process is a drawn-out affair – however well you’ve planned it, so play it safe by dedicating adequate time to avoid irritated guests and staff.

Aim to oversee, not micromanage

Ideally, an event manager’s attention should be on managing the logistics of an event, and not on administrative tasks. Outsource your registration process by hiring professionals who’re adept at running swift and efficient operations. You’ll have more time in which to attend to the small details, and you won’t be worrying that your VIP is standing in a queue waiting for his name tag to be found.

Give your guests several payment options

This is another way to up attendance rates and avoid the event registration process being more laborious than necessary. Give your guests the option of paying with cash, via a pocket POS, or paying online when they pre-register. The easier it is for someone to pay, the more pleasant their experience. Remember that every interaction a guest has with your event – from their invitation, to registration, to the event itself – is a chance to showcase your brand in the best possible light.

Streamline the process with event registration software

Don’t waste time setting up desktop computers, modems, and other old-school paraphernalia. Kit your staff out with tablets or smartphones which have access to the internet. This allows them to register guests at the touch of a button. This will also avoid confusion and keep everyone updated, as an online guest list is updated in real time – so everyone can see who’s arrived, who you’re waiting on, and who’s cancelled at the last-minute.

Event registration doesn’t have to be a headache. Outsourcing the process or employing the use of event registration software will go a long way in transforming an exasperating process into one that’s efficient and professional experience – for you and your guests.

Most event managers have their preferred way of doing things, and some practices make more sense than others. We’ve rounded up a couple of the most misguided pieces of advice we’ve heard about the conference registration process. Read on to find out what not to do.

One registration desk is sufficient for streamlined registration.

Some event managers are under the impression that one desk, with a single “check-in” points, is the most efficient way to register their guests. They’re guided by the thinking that the area will be easy to spot, and staff will be able to work together as a team. Unfortunately, this often leads to congestion and frustrated guests – painting an unprofessional portrait of your brand. Avoid this situation by placing multiple registration desks in a room. Ensure stations are visible by making use of clear signage, and user ushers to direct your guests. In addition, guests could be grouped according to surname clusters to make the process even more organised.

Name tags only need to be printed as people arrive.

While this seems like a great idea in theory, mainly because of the cost-saving aspect, this process is incredibly time consuming and not worth the couple of cents you are going to save. What’s more, if you encounter technical difficulties on the day, like a printer that’s run out of ink, you’ll hold up the entire event programme, resulting in unhappy guests. Instead, pre- print them before the day, and then have the facilities to allow you to print a few new tags in case an uninvited guest arrives, or someone’s name is spelt incorrectly.

Using Excel to record all registration details.

This means that each registration desk has a different, and often conflicting, version of your guest list, which makes collating the data extremely difficult. What’s more, if one of your computers is stolen – you’ve lost precious data that won’t be recoverable.

Using an online event software solution eradicates all of these problems. This will ensure that all of your data is synced, in real time. You’ll also be able to send out SMSs or emails to notify people about last minute changes to the programme – positioning your events as highly organised and professional.

Using sales staff to co-ordinate the registration process.

This seems like a smart choice, as most of your sales team will be able to recognise guests. However, this also means that your key sales people are stuck doing grunt work, missing out on valuable network opportunities. Instead, outsource this to experienced administrators who are adept at registration processes.

Using unskilled, temporary staff as registration facilitators.

The conference registration process is someone’s very first impression of your brand. If you’ve hired inexperienced staff to register your guests, you’ll come off looking unprofessional. A guest’s experience of the conference registration also sets expectation for the rest of the conference or event – rather spend a portion of your budget on hiring people with the relevant skills – the pay-off of using inept staff isn’t worth it.

Waiting for all guests to arrive before opening the registration desk.

Event planners often think this is a good idea, as they’ll be able to ensure that everyone is at the venue already, and by having a short registration period they’ll reduce both the costs involved, and the time it takes.  Waiting for everyone to arrive before opening your registration desks is a recipe for disaster – there will always be hiccups, which means extra time must be allocated. Some guests might be put off long queues, or be in a hurry to get to a talk in time, and won’t register at all. Make sure you have at least one desk open beforehand to allow early birds to register before the rest of your guests.

Treating guests, speakers, VIP’s and members of the media equally.

As egalitarian is this is in theory, you don’t want your VIPs having to stand in a queue with the rest of attendee. Ensure that they’re made to feel important, by creating a VIP check-in table, and by briefing registration staff on who’s who before the day.

Relying on desktop computers to check people

This is an outdated, and unnecessary practice. You’ll need to organise the setting up of each station, and if you need to move, you will need to pack up and unpack a whole lot of heavy equipment. You’ll also need to find a phone line or wifi connection. This isn’t conducive to positioning your brand as an industry leader. Make use of tablets such as iPads to check guests in, so that you can freely move about the venue, all the while being connected via 3G.

So, there you have it. If you’re planning your next registration process, take any advice you receive with a pinch of salt, and commit the above to memory.

In this article we’ll discuss how the two types of event registration will evolve in an effort to simplify and streamline the event registration process. Firstly, pre-event registration, which entails getting a “yes” or “no” response from a guest to confirm whether they’ll be attending an event. And secondly, on-site event registration is the process whereby a guest “checks in” on the day of an event.

The pre –event registration process will evolve in several ways:

Our frenetic pace of life means we now have less time than ever before. Coupled with the fact that we’re constantly being invited to an ever-growing number of events, achieving the holy grail of a positive RSVP is becoming increasingly more difficult.

Guests will need more persuading than ever before.

In the past, event registration entailed the simple act of sending out some email invitations and then collating the responses from guests. As our lives get even more hectic, people will be less likely to respond to to email invites due to limited time and the vast amount of invitations they receive.

As spam filters become more sophisticated, more email invitations will end up labelled as spam.

The beautiful, carefully designed invitation that you spent all night making? It probably won’t see the light of day thanks to over-enthusiastic spam folders. What this means for event planners is that essentially, there’ll be an increased need to optimise your event registration invitations in order to ensure that they land in the inbox of your intended recipients.

Another method that will help event planners combat this problem will be an increased focus on “call downs” – a follow-up in the form of a phone call.

Communicating with your guests verbally gives you the opportunity to find out why they haven’t responded – they might have been too busy to reply, the invite might have landed in their spam folder, or they just weren’t bothered. In any case, adding a human connection to an email invitation will become an important part of your pre-event registration process.

These services will also be outsourced – most companies have neither the time nor personnel needed to follow up with their guests. Outsourcing a call down service will streamline the process and ensure its efficiency.

Invitations will become more intuitive.

Facilities that remember pertinent information about your guests will grow in popularity. If someone has told a brand that they’re a vegetarian at a past event, this will eliminate them from having to repeatedly give you the same information, and it’ll make them feel valued by your brand when you remember their preferences.

On-site event registration has traditionally been a time-consuming and complicated process.

As even the most seasoned event planner knows, not everyone who’s registered to attend an event will show up on the day. Setting up an event registration desk is a way to consolidate the number of guests who’ve arrived with the number of people who said they’d attend and then ended up being a no-show.

They’re typically set up behind a desk complete with a PC, a printer and a tangle of extension cords.

Event organisers will start to use tablets instead – eradicating the need for a whole lot of heavy equipment that takes ages to set up and then break down again.

Having to hunt high and low for a plug point in order to activate your modem only to have the power cut out half way through will become obsolete and everything will be orchestrated from an iPad or similar tablet device.

Companies will start to outsource their ushers and administration staff – freeing up valuable personnel to network and attend to the needs of their guests.

Instead of using your own employees to carry out the administrative task of checking guests in on the day of your event, event managers will opt to use hired help to ensure that their own team is on hand to network and represent the brand.

Send SMS and email blasts to guests at the event

Event planners will be able to use platforms to communicate with guests throughout the event (and after the event) – eradicating the time-wasting performance of attempting to notify everyone (via a loudspeaker) that the proceedings are about to begin. As your realtime database is updated as guests are checked in, you’ll be able to conduct real time reporting – which will allow you to determine invaluable information like the number of guests who’ve yet to arrive – allowing you to make informed decisions about things like when procedures should begin. And instead of frantically searching a sea of faces in a jam-packed venue, you’ll instantly be able to determine whether or not your all-important VIPs have arrived.
