Are Event Managers Getting lazy?

Posted on | February 19, 2015 | No Comments

Event ManagementWith spring right around the corner, event planners are waking up from their winter holiday hibernation and settling into go-mode for the upcoming event season. Recently though, it seems that event managers are slumbering a bit longer before tackling full slates of corporate events, training seminars, tradeshows and higher education recruiting events. Are event managers getting lazy? Or, have they found the key to event management bliss in an uber efficient and time saving online event registration software? We like to think it’s the event software.

For years, event planning started sooner than later as sending paper event invitations via snail-mail took approximately 2 to 7 days to reach a destination and waiting for registration forms to return took another week. Today, the need to get that extra early start on event management is not as important as it once was because holistic online event management software with email invitations saves time and simplifies the event registration process leaving additional time for other marketing functions.

Event planners should look for these key features in online event software:

  • Complete Online Registration
  • DIY Custom Event Websites and Landing Pages
  • Email Invitations
  • Automated Confirmations to Registrants
  • Online Payments Portals
  • Detailed Reporting
  • Customizable Templates for Branded Badges
  • And more…
