8 Unique Event Ideas For Attendees To Enjoy
The Engaging Social Media Wall
A social wall is an engaging tool to leverage engaging social media content into an event. A social wall works in any and every event format. So, no matter whether your event is in-person, virtual, or hybrid, the responsive social wall can work everywhere.
It enables you to collect content from different social media platforms, and curate it into a unified feed so that you can seamlessly display it at your event. Many social wall providers also allow users to create sponsored posts.
Keep your event a two-way event rather than one-way where you keep speaking, and your audience keeps watching quietly. Organize Q&A sessions where your audience gets to have one-on-one interaction with the speaker.
You can inform them before the event begins that they will be given the opportunity to ask questions so that they can prepare them prior. It is a great way to get your audience involved and feel like they are indeed a part of the event.
Create Networking Possibilities
When attendees come to your event, one of their goals is to explore networking at your event. How they can meet new people, interact with them, exchange ideas, and expand their network.
One way to make that happen is by allowing attendees to interact with one another. If yours is a virtual event, you can allow each attendee to feed in an e-business card as they register for the event so that they can easily share and expand their network.
Play Quizzes & Trivia
Playing quizzes and trivia during your event can also be an engagement source for your event attendees. Choose topics that are interesting and relevant to your event’s format and generate interest.
You can also announce goodies or prizes for the winners and tell the audience that you will be announcing the winners at the end of the event. This is a great way to keep the audience excited and hooked till the end of the event.
Captivating Photo Booth
Photo booths are very much in trend lately. Many event organizers instil photo booths in their events. Not just that, there are photo booth platforms that create photo booths as per your event’s format, be it virtual, physical, or hybrid.
You can customize unique photo booth filters, templates, and stamps that go well with your brand’s theme. It is a great way to generate user-generated content around your event. Not just that, when your attendees are willingly sharing the posts, you can repurpose them for any marketing campaigns you want.
Organize Improv Workshops
Improv workshops are a perfect activity to engage your event attendees and give them something to look forward to. Improv workshops are the kind of workshops in which you give the participants a particular sentence, and they come with new sentences that create a story.
It is not only entertaining for the participants but the audience as well. The workshop will create interaction opportunities among your event attendees and help them network better.
Polling is another way to entertain your event attendees. You can choose any trending topic and take your audience’s opinion on it through polling. Share the results in the end and see how excited your audience gets.
Invite Industry Leaders As Speakers
Inviting industry leaders as speakers can be a great strategy to create a stand-out event for your attendees. When you bring an industry leader to your event, your attendees will have something to look forward to.
