In working with more than 9200 clients, we've seen some really great ways to enhance event registration. And the best thing is that with the advent of online registration systems, many of these techniques can be automated and streamlined.
Simplify and Economize for Success
You might be surprised how simple changes in your registration design can make everything much easier and more efficient for you and for your attendees - which makes everybody happy! Plus, preparation up-front will save you a lot of time and hassle in the end.
Online registration systems are event registration tools to help you build your event quickly. But, all too often, building the event takes longer than anticipated because not enough time was spent designing the registration process.
Take Time Now to Save Frustrations Later
Give yourself a week or more to create a great design for your online registration. That way you can percolate some really good ideas, bounce them off of others, and even get some assistance from your online registration system’s support team.
Some support teams will help you scope everything out, brainstorm on ideas, and even help you build your registration pages. Decide how you want your system to work. Do you expect different types of attendees or vendors? Will you be supplying additional materials (CDs, tapes, t-shirts) that your attendees will want to order up front?
Planning out the way you want your system to work will not only help you see the “big picture" of your event planning, and help your support team to identify problem areas, but it will produce a more appealing, robust system in the end.
I sincerely hope this article makes your conference and seminar registration even more successful!
