Being able to attend an entire event virtually felt very futuristic until a few months ago when tech improved dramatically and new health situations encouraged us to change our view on traditional events. So, we have great news (and a solid solution for event planners that still need their events), with some attendees hesitant to travel or unable to be (physically) in one place all together.
There are a number of aspects that go into hosting a successful event. From planning, execution, to post-event feedback management, there is a lot to get done. One of the most vital elements you need to manage is the event registrations process.
It is crucial to know who will be attending your event and to have their contact details on hand should you need to communicate any changes or additional information.
At Flock, we believe that using technology is a great way of ensuring success. There are many benefits to using an electronic event registration solution instead of managing RSVPs manually, the obvious benefits being it saves you time and money. It is a lot less admin intensive as the system does the heavy lifting and you’re left with a streamlined list of attendees and their details.
Ever been at an event that could have done with a bit more… fun? Ever thought that the speakers could engage the crowd a bit more, or that you’ve got some burning questions you’d love to ask but would rather not be subject to the traditional “roving mic”? The reality is, you probably aren’t the only one thinking that, and the good news is that we have a solution!
One of our most exciting projects at the moment is the Think Big Series by PSG where thought leaders from around South Africa in various industries such as sports, aviation, the tobacco industry, education, and others have come together to discuss some of the most fascinating topics, with some of the most knowledgeable people in the business – award-winning journalist Bruce Whitfield, Herman Mashaba and Jacques Pauw. This is a series made for the public and goes into deep insights on a variety of fronts, so the importance of a smooth-running show is paramount.
