Over the past couple of years, the number of in-person events has reduced owing to the coronavirus pandemic. Many event organizers have moved their conferences, meetings, and other live events to virtual to keep the momentum going. But with things are getting back to normal now, it’s time for event organizers to look for ways to reinvent themselves in returning to in-person events.
Here are some useful tips that can help you to reach your event goals while hosting an in-person event;
Let it be hybrid
Instead of hosting a physical-only event, you can switch to a hybrid event format with distributed audiences. This way, the chance of getting your event postponed or canceled becomes very minimal. If you haven’t hosted any hybrid events in the past, you can do some research online to find out what your competitors are doing. Also, you can brainstorm with your team to come up with some event planning strategies. To make this work even better, you can make use of a hybrid event management software to automate your event planning tasks.
Contactless event check-in
To ensure a safe in-person event experience for your audience, you must avoid crowding at your event check-in area. Thus, you must consider choosing an event check-in app to make this process seamless and faster at your event venue. These event apps allow your attendees to check in to your event by just scanning the QR code available on their event tickets. Eventually, it saves you a lot of time and focuses on other important event tasks.
Incorporate social distancing in ticket sales page
With social distancing is likely to be an essential part of in-person events in the future, creating socially distanced spaces for your attendees at the event venue is so crucial. You can choose an event ticketing software with a reserved seating feature to incorporate social distancing in your event ticket sales page. With this feature, you can create different tiers of seating and edit numbering. In short, you can make seating arrangements as you want them to be.
