Conference and Corporate Meeting planning can be quite complex. Planners are responsible for everything from location through enhancing the overall event experience. Well planned daily activities make the event more manageable, but there is still the challenge of keeping attendees engaged and entertained after the daily program.
After a day of intense concentration on industry topics, Conference Trance may set in. Conference Trance is akin to mental fatigue resulting from intense information saturation that requires a break for attendees to refuel. Attendees may be eager to retreat to their hotel room to catch up on work, stream their favorite music, or watch movies on demand. However, conference and meeting organizers understand that to maximize the experience and value for their attendees, it is essential to fill this white space with an opportunity to network and build relationships.
Conference and meeting attendees can be invigorated and gain valuable knowledge by making connections with other event attendees. Further, these connections can lead to personal and business development. Event planners often look to sightseeing tours, major league games, restaurants, and other local attractions to create opportunities for attendees to network and build connections.
In today’s modern world, attendees’ expectations are much higher than in the past. For many attendees, the entertainment MUST be an experience or opportunity to which they would not otherwise have access. On the bleeding edge of opportunity are eGaming and eSports events that, when done correctly, can engage a group from those on the leading edge of tech while still appealing to others who are a bit more nostalgic.
