Taking your contingency plans to the next step

Taking your contingency plans to the next step | Tradeshows | Scoop.it

Imagine you’re planning an annual event. Everything has been ordered and confirmed. The event is only a few days away. Then, Hurricane Matthew hits and your supplier can’t deliver as various components of your order were in a building that now has six feet of water in it. Or you are a supplier and I-95 is shut down in key areas forcing traffic into long detours thereby causing your perishables that were ordered to arrive too late. Or perhaps a two-week-long riot (Baltimore 2015) prevents your supplier from meeting a key deadline. Or something as simple as a power outage that lasts for more than eight hours forces the venue to close just a few hours before the event.

How To Drive Traffic To Booths With A Low Budget

How To Drive Traffic To Booths With A Low Budget | Tradeshows | Scoop.it

The key to driving  booth traffic on a low-budget then amounts to user experience and memorability, by tying gifts or ideas to your brand message, and always ensuring that you are providing quality will help you to stand out!

How Eventprofs Can Take Advantage Of Binge Attending

How Eventprofs Can Take Advantage Of Binge Attending | Tradeshows | Scoop.it

The new way to consume content is to binge. A familiar concept with TV shows and movies but the same behavior is emerging as a trend in events too. We take a look at the binge attending phenomenon and see what’s in it for eventprofs.
I want it all and I want it now. When it comes to consuming content, this appears to be very much the default position these days. Constant FOMO (fear of missing out), combined with an ever-growing all you can eat buffet of desirable content are two of the main drivers of this behavior.

Design-Driven Project Management for Event Planners

Design-Driven Project Management for Event Planners | Tradeshows | Scoop.it

Event planners juggle a lot of roles and responsibilities. But no matter how good you are at your job, you will at some point be relying on someone else to do something. Sometimes those people are your staff, other times suppliers. Some you will have “jurisdiction” over, while some will be completely independent of you. Still, from a client perspective as the event planner or manager, you will be expected to make sure that everyone is working well together and exceeding expectations. After all, it’s your name and reputation at stake. That’s why it’s beneficial for all event planners to have a basic knowledge of project management and best practices. You’ll save yourself a lot of headache and operate more efficiently if you master the basics.
