Whether planning a conference, seminar, or celebration, this blog post will guide you in using tech tools such as video projections, live streaming integrations, and interactive polls to connect with your event attendees like never before. 

Read on for valuable tips about using Technology to make your next in-person event one for the books!

Live-stream your event so people who can’t attend in person can still watch

Technology can be a potent tool for event planners to enhance in-person events. Not only can scheduled online content keeps an audience connected and engaged before a possibility, but live streaming during the event can bring attendees who won’t even be there! 

The development of various services and technologies has always made life easier for us, for example, students turn to multiple companies for coursework help, and companies, in turn, turn to AI technology to reduce the amount of time on a particular task and increase efficiency.

Technologies are also a great way to create digital participation among remote audiences who cannot attend in person due to health restrictions.

Furthermore, businesses and organizations that host conferences or conventions stand to benefit significantly from large-scale integration of live streaming on the web, allowing influencers and other industry experts the chance to participate without needing to be physically present at the venue.

It’s a clever way for businesses and organizations to broaden their reach of impact and extend invitations beyond those with access to travel or time off work.

Finally, through social media outlets such as Facebook Live, YouTube Live, Twitter, or Instagram stories—organizations can spread their message with creative content or real-time broadcasting that engages viewers worldwide.

Use social media to encourage audience participation.

Social media can be a powerful tool to engage audiences in physical events and get more people interested. For example, you could write a post on your platform of choice teasing what will happen at the event, inviting followers to join the festivities.

Posting behind-the-scenes glimpses of preparations or even having a contest to “write my speech for me” are great ways to create hype and offer something extra those off-social channels can’t get. What’s more, by using hashtags and tagging relevant accounts, you’ll increase your reach far beyond your current followers – boosting attendance and driving greater participation from those in attendance!

Social media can help to:

  • Increase awareness of an event.
  •  Generate interest in an event.
  •  Promote an event.
  •  Create a sense of community around an event.
  •  Increase attendance at an event.

Use writing skills from AI that help effectively convey information to people.

Writing skills developed by artificial technologies are becoming increasingly sophisticated, making many wonder how those same capabilities can exist in in-person events. 

By leveraging these advances in technical literacy, event organizers can create captivating presentations that help engage and inform their audience. Everyone involved benefits from achieving these objectives – guest speakers become better communicators, and attendees get an extra boost of understanding and insight into the conversation. 

Through a blend of human ingenuity and technical proficiency, we can craft experiences that tap into modern technologies and the timeless appeal of interpersonal relationships.

 In addition, AI and for all sorts of tasks such as ChatGPT: writing scripts, sitcom dialogues in the style of famous characters, interview questions, business letters and tech support appeals, and more. And there’s also AI for narrowly focused tasks, like creating written papers using the platform; they use checkers to detect errors and formatting tools to ensure document consistency. With powerful search engines and advanced editing capabilities, these technologies make writing more efficient.

By applying the right skills, incorporating accurate facts, and understanding audience interests, it’s possible to create content with artificial Technology that is concise, clear, and engaging.

Create a custom event app to provide additional information and resources

Hosting an in-person event can be challenging to manage. That is why having an app designed specifically for your event can be a great way to provide attendees with additional information and resources. 

A custom event app can include interactive features like pictures, messages, and helpful information related to your event. It will make it easier to track all the details, and visitors may feel more involved and engaged throughout their experience. Furthermore, you can use the app to collect real-time feedback from attendees—which helps you understand how people think about your event before they even leave. With a custom event app, you can ensure your event runs smoothly using modern Technology best.

Record the event so people can watch it later.

Not only does capturing an event allow it to reach a much wider audience than could attend in person, but it also enables more excellent replay and review, which makes people more informed of the event overall. 

By empowering people with on-demand access to events, they can relive moments they enjoyed and share them with their network creating a greater sense of community amongst like-minded individuals. 

Recording events adds value and gives them lasting power beyond the passing of time, thereby enhancing in-person events for everyone involved.

Use Technology to collect feedback from attendees after the event is over.

Collecting feedback from event attendees after it is over is an invaluable tool in improving how we can design events for maximum success. Whereas traditionally, we could only collect this kind of feedback manually, today, there are multiple ways to gather and analyze data in real-time using Technology. 

By leveraging modern technologies such as surveys, web forms, and electronic questionnaires, event hosts can gain insights into various aspects of the event experience that we use to create better events—from layout design and food quality to marketing strategies and interactive elements. Technology enables faster customer responses, more accurate analytics, and detailed information behind each individual responsible for a more precise picture of the overall sentiment about the event. Crucially, it allows those running the event to understand what works and what needs improvement further down the line.
