How to increase the attendance at your next conference
When you spend a lot of time planning business conferences, meetings or retreats, you want a great turnout.
You certainly don’t want your guest speaker giving a presentation to a half-empty ballroom.
So how can you fill the seats and increase attendance at your next event?
You know what they say: Location, location, location. One way to get a good turnout is to hold your conference in a desirable destination. The Alabama Gulf Coast is, therefore, a perfect choice. With beautiful beaches, varied menus at top-rated restaurants, and plenty of attractions and activities, you’ll get the registration response you want.
You should base your agenda on feedback from previous attendees. What are you offering? Make it simple, clear and direct. Lock in the place and dates early so you can get the invitations out.
Use social media to build interest. Create a meetup.com account so users with relevant interests will be aware of your event. Use emails to send info directly to each member’s inbox. Eventbrite is another great platform for posting your event. Create a Facebook Group and Facebook Event, then update posts with area photographs, planning tips, activities and recommended restaurants in Gulf Shores and Orange Beach as you count down to the event.
