If you’ve ever had an event app, you will know the importance of the Event Agenda feature. The agenda is the first feature everyone expects when they get their event app. They use it to highlight rich speaker profiles, description of the session, personal reminders, rating & feedback, and attaching documents.
The agenda has often been confused as a feature that can only be used to inform attendees. To enhance your event experience in far more interactive ways, the agenda feature really helps. Let us show you how.
Interactive Event Agenda Features
During panel discussions or speaker sessions, the Live Q&A feature is very helpful. The audience can ask questions through the mobile event APP. Projection of questions happens post-moderation. This is a fun and interactive way to engage with the audience rather than using an old-fashioned method of the speaker individually choosing a member of the audience to ask a question.
During the event, since the speaker doesn’t have time to answer or point out to every nuance of his speech, it can be hard for an attendee to follow. To rectify this dilemma, we have enabled the chat feature on the event agenda. Here, the audience can chat with their fellow attendees and discuss topics that are related to the session.
For some event owners, its vital that they know the number of people attending a session. Such event analytics are necessary for a lead generation platform, limit the session to a selected few and so on. Using the event agenda, we can integrate it with our check-in and help the event owners and organizers get this crucial data. Before attending the session, with the event agenda, all the attendee needs to do is scan the QR-Code and get approved. Instantly, the data will get uploaded to the system for analysis.
To maintain the interest of the attendees, you need to interact with them during the session. Live polling is a brilliant way of getting opinions from the attendees and making them invested in the session. For example, during a session, the speaker can pose a question to the audience and based on their viewpoint they can answer accordingly. Projecting this on to the main screen to see the live result is what makes it interesting!
There are times in events where there are many sessions in the same time slot, a limited number of seats and etc. To commit to one of these sessions, the attendees need to know the time and description of it. Once they identify the session they want to attend, they can click the RSVP button and then register themselves. This ensures that they have a chance to attend the event and it also provides the event organizer with real-time data on how many people have registered.
When attendees come into a session, expecting them to have pen and papers is a big ask. Note-taking is an important part of any session! Depending on their preference they can either write them down or take a video. What makes it really interactive is that they can share their notes and views with the fellow audience!
There are many ways one can highlight the sponsors of the event. It can range from banners, ads in the event and etc. The problem with this is, not many attendees will remember them since it is not their main concern. An Event Agenda APP can power your sponsors better. Since attendees will constantly be on the event app, you can market your sponsors in their agenda. In each session, the attendees will get to know either in the description, through images, banners in the app of what that sponsor does. The analytics you get from this will really be helpful to them.
To interact with your audience and not just inform them is what makes a successful event agenda. Getting raving reviews is the whole idea of making the event interactive. In conclusion, an event agenda is a powerful tool that provides a quicker and cheaper alternative to traditional methods to achieve your goals.
