We have been delighted to support our customers with relaunching their events over the last month. It is a pleasure to see attendees enjoying events safely again and we now look forward to a busy, event-filled summer.
Latest Government advice states that we can continue with the next stage of lockdown-easing on the 17th of May 2021. With this in mind, event organisers such as yourself will now be planning full steam ahead for the summer.
Promoting your events
Promotion of your events is vital to capture the interest of your potential customers and secure income during the summer.
Utilising an online booking system will give you the ability to share links to your registration pages online, through your website and on social media. As well as increasing the online visibility of your events, this will also provide your customers with an easy way to book online and pay.
Taking your bookings online also guarantees you revenue well in advance of your event start date, making it easier to plan for COVID safety, the number of staff you will need on site and other important factors.
Getting ahead of the rush
The phrase “the earlier the better” is certainly true when it comes to deciding when to launch your booking pages. Potential customers are already looking for events to participate in during the summer and beyond, so making sure you are ahead of the game is the best way to get a head start.
Launching your registration links at the earliest possible opportunity ensures that you maximise the opportunity to fill your events to capacity, whilst also increasing interest in your events going forward. The benefit of having your bookings in early is massive, as you can plan assured that your event will run at a profit.
How an online booking system helps with COVID safety precautions
You can use our online booking system to set limits for the maximum number of attendees to your event or session(s). This helps to ensure that you are compliant with COVID safety regulations, as well as enabling you to plan for event safety in advance based on attendance numbers.
Having real-time access to your register of attendees gives you all the information you need for contact-tracking. This is particularly useful if you need to contact your attendees after the event, or to communicate with them in advance of the start date. The register can be exported to Excel at the click of the button, ensuring that you always have access regardless of connection to the internet.
In addition to the above measures, our QR code functionality allows for contact less check-in of attendees as they arrive. Simply enable QR codes on your event, download the free Participant App and enjoy a quicker, easier, and safer way to scan in your participants.
