I stole this wonderful article from HubSpot Blog.
Previously, I mentioned the Top Three items to keep in mind when starting to plan your event. Well this is quite the opposite. Once all your big items are in place, it is time to start thinking details.
Many of the items mentioned in this article, might be things you may very well forget, not because you are a bad planner (not even close) but mostly because there is such a long list of things to keep in mind that sometimes things slip through the cracks.
Thankfully we have articles such as this to keep us on our toes.
A couple of my favourites are:
4) Alternately, ask your hotel to give attendees a welcome packet that you've put together upon check in. You can often negotiate add-on services like this before you sign your contract. Attendees will really feel the 5-star treatment with a welcoming gesture like this!
7) Designate an area where people can relax, check their email, and make phone calls. Do not let any sponsors in this area. It should be a safe space where people can escape the conference. Doing this will prevent attendees from leaving the event when they need a break ... and then never coming back!
