    Lead qualification is one of the top uses for business webinars. In an attempt to qualify the best sales leads, webinar vendors and webinar hosts may employ lead scoring based on answers to registration questions before the webinar, responses to interactive polls during the webinar, and responses to post-webinar surveys. Some vendors construct an "engagement score" based on things like number of interactions during the webinar, length of time the webinar window had focus on the computer desktop, and other statistics. I am not knocking those scoring methodologies. If you deliver lots of…

  • 4 Criteria to Select an Amazing Event Moderator

    24 Apr 2015 | 3:00 am
    Chemistry is a simple thing. The right mix of elements will get you a chain-reaction, leading to whatever you want: heat, cold, light, electricity, oxygen… even explosion or fireworks. But when it comes to meetings and events, this chemistry turns out to be not all that easy. The ingredient of moderation, for instance, is one to be added with great care. Throw in the wrong meeting-moderator and your event will turn into a tasteless, colourless and useless bowl of sludge. On the bright side: with a few simple selection-criteria, moderation will add just that little bit of extra power every…

  • The Importance of Emotion within Your Event Strategy

    Measuring the success of an event is almost always done by numbers: tickets sold or number of performances staged. I come from the world of sport events, having worked at the Olympic Games, and I know how important it is to have a full stadium. However, counting people and setting a record is not enough to declare an event a success. Think of a wedding: a large and glorious room filled with hundreds of guests. Is the bridal party a success? Not really, if people are elegantly dressed, listening to nice music and eating good food but completely bored. The most memorable wedding I have attended…

    Post written by Chad Reid, thank you Chad! I still remember the day I was asked by my Ohio-based alma mater to volunteer my time to plan regional events in the San Francisco Bay Area. It seemed like a no-brainer: I loved my college experience, I never turn down an opportunity to network, and I had loads of previous event planning experience. Churning out well-attended events in the Bay Area was an easy proposition, I figured. Well, I was wong. My first “event” was an unmitigated disaster. I had roped off an entire section of a large restaurant, set up an event sign-in table, had…

We are daily witnesses of how social media can change businesses and make them stronger. Also, when planning your event - you want to share it with the target group, potential clients, and the world - for everyone to know about it, talk about it and be a part of it.   Here is what you need to know when it comes to event planning, in order for social media to work: Make a plan.

There are plenty of options including catering services, restaurants and food trucks. Each has distinct advantages and disadvantages. The size and nature of your get-together will go a long way in determining which food service option is the best for your unique group.

    Sutro Baths: Vertical Poop by Andy Morris Your conference’s technical presentations suffer from POOH*! “Huh?” you ask. “What are you talking about?” Too often, and I mean way too often, our conferences are full of technical presentations that offer nothing more than POOH!

  • Rebalancing Conference Vertigo By Starting With Design-Less Strategies

    Jeff Hurt
    17 Apr 2015 | 12:59 pm
    Leaping to action without a solid comprehension of your conference target market and their needs causes all sorts of mayhem. Some conference organizers and their planning team members don’t even realize they are in the eye of a storm. That mayhem is their blind spot. Planning a conference without a deep understanding of what makes your target market tick is like building a house without a blueprint or foundation. It’s a shaky conference foundation. It’s like the parable of building your house on sand versus building it on a solid foundation. The Conference Vertigo Zone: We Have…

    Collaboration – it’s one of the buzzwords of business today. Collaboration is when people work together to achieve a goal. Multiple individuals from different departments work together to accomplish a task or project. Evan Rosen in his book The Culture of Collaboration says “[Collaboration is] working together to create value while sharing virtual and physical space.” Eric Schmidt, Google Chairman, sarcastically and succinctly said that the average 45 year old thinks collaboration is teams sitting down, having a nice conversation with nice objectives and a nice attitude.

We are still designing our conference in the exact same way that companies designed their manufacturing production process, to paraphrase Dave Gray author of The Connected Company. We are trying to imitate the industrial age to make our conference networking, programming and experiences faster and better. I suspect that your conference decision makers have very little solid knowledge about context beyond what they deliver. They think they speak for what’s going on in their…

    Sometimes, for me, the hardest step in planning/executing any event is simply beginning. To jump-start your loveliest event yet, here are 5 important questions (and follow-up questions) for you to consider before assembling your to-do-list: What/who are we celebrating? When will the event take place? Are there any holidays surrounding your event? Something to consider: Holidays often mean time off work for the 9-5 crowd, meaning big plans. So, if you’re not planning a holiday-centric event (i.e. Thanksgiving Dinner, 4th of July BBQ, etc.) utilizing a long weekend may impact your…

Should I just reuse my same slides? I say they are not equivalent, although there are overlaps. Because terminology is a tricky thing, you will no doubt hear marketing professionals interchange the two phrases. Actually, there is a third phrase to consider as well: "Lead Generation." Let's see if we can build a case for differentiating the three. Content Marketing is a tactic where you provide informational value for…

The phrase ‘Net Member Value’ was talked about repeatedly and the goal of the attendees we spoke with was two-fold, 1) How to use technology to turn their 3-5 day engagement into a 365 conversation and 2) How their too infrequent…

  • Ty Warner’s Four Seasons Hotel New York Debuts New Event Space

    Bruce Serlen
    21 Apr 2015 | 8:00 am
    One of the fascinating aspects of luxury hotels is their ability to reinvent their public spaces as demand changes, no less as the style and fashions of the moment change. A recent case in point debuted last month, when the Four Seasons Hotel New York, owned by Beanie Baby mogul Ty Warner, refashioned its second floor public space once again. Now known as Fifty7 for the hotel’s address on East 57th St. in Midtown Manhattan, the 3,200-square-foot venue is now devoted exclusively to group functions. When the 368-room hotel first opened in 1993, the space was the full-service 5757 Restaurant…

    Plenty of hotel and events workers throughout California were on the front lines when the “Fight for 15″ movement failed to convince legislators to nudge the state minimum wage to $15 an hour. As it turned out, they’ll have to wait until next year to see their hourly wage skyrocket by a whole buck, from $9 to $10. Cue the Game of Thrones victory music. But the latest news out of Washington State has me wondering if maybe “Fight for 15″ shouldn’t be aiming higher. A lot higher.

  • How Meeting Planners Can Avoid Getting Sick While Traveling

    photo by hellawella.com It’s no secret that most meeting planners are frequent flyers. To anyone that’s not in the meetings and events industry the life of a meeting planner may seems glorious. I don’t want to take away from the exotic locations that many meeting planners get to see but I’ve worked with many planners that could barely remember what city they were in. With the type of travel schedule that a meeting planner has, quite often he or she can become run down or sick. Our routines tend to take a backseat when traveling. It’s easy to fall into that trap.

Some may argue that the most important component are the tour guides/on-site staff. What you can’t argue is that they are one of the lowest cost component of an event’s overall budget (as this event cost breakdown shows). Ironically tour guides / on-site staff are one of the first areas that get cut from an event’s budget. My opinion is that is being penny wise and pound foolish. And I’ll explain why I believe that below. One characteristic of tour guides that made me realize just…

An event supplier’s goal is to get his or her name, and their business, in front of meeting planners. But I’m often amazed at how some of these event suppliers go about the sales process.  Many suppliers feel that once they obtain the contact information of a group, that they’ll simply reach out, via cold call, social media or email,  and voilà: an RFP request will sure to follow.

You manage to get a a little shut eye before doing it all over again. Sound familiar? To be an event planner can feel like being all things to all people all the time. Your time…
  • Are Money Beliefs Limiting Your Success? w/ Get Rich Lucky Bitch

    Melanie Woodward
    25 Mar 2015 | 6:50 am
    Like many others, I’ve had times in my life where I struggled with money. I’ve read many books on the subject and talk with friends about it often – it’s actually one of my favorite topics to learn and to talk about even though there’s still a stigma around discussing money. I believe I’ve come to have a healthy understanding and relationship with my money beliefs – even though they’re always changing. I continue to educate myself and to improve my money beliefs, and I don’t believe in the idea that there is a lack of money (for anyone),…

  • Build Your Own Software. Who Are You?

    Nicola Rossetti
    27 Apr 2015 | 5:28 am
    Build your own software: Why not? or Why not. There is a slim difference between a period and a question mark; one raises a question, and the other suggests an answer. But is it so? Should you build your own software? The answer (my answer) is probably no, but in fact it’s a little bit more complex than just that, and this probably touches on more aspects of the business than you may think. I once worked for an event organizer, where of course events represented the core of the activity. The company was running on premise event management software. As it became dated, it was clear that we…
  • Top 5 Tips for Managing a Team On-Site

    Amanda Luppino-Esposito
    24 Apr 2015 | 3:00 am
    Most events – large or small – require multiple people to pull it together, especially on-site during the event itself. The event planner in charge is responsible for orchestrating lots of moving pieces, as well as people – vendors, suppliers, attendees, and of course, staff or volunteers. Here are my suggestions for managing that team on-site. 5 – Have clearly defined roles. If you do one thing on this list, this is it. Every single person – from volunteers and interns all the way up to senior level staff involved with the event – needs to have a role (or…

  • What to Measure from Your Post-Event Data

    Kristen Carvalho

    This post was written by professional blogger Sarah Hill One of the golden rules of business is to always strive for improvement and efficiency, because progress, in the end, is what drives any industry forward. Therefore being able to measure and understand data from events is what separates the big and successful event management companies in the industry from the amateurs and wannabes. But what exactly should be measured? Here’s where it gets a bit trickier – there are many approaches that have their advocates, but in reality, there are a few essential metrics that have to be analyzed…

    This post was written by Will Curran, President & Founder of Endless Entertainment When I first started my company in high school, I did not have the luxury of owning all of my own equipment or having a staff big enough to execute the massive events I was producing, because of this I had to hire a lot of AV and event production companies. I saw the best of the best and the worst of the worst. After years of working with AV companies, I sought to change the event AV industry and founded my own event production company, Endless Entertainment. We took all of those things we hated about AV…

Luckily, the people we’ve spoken with haven’t yet had this fear become a reality, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t a legitimate concern.

While we’re headquartered in Zurich, Switzerland, zkipster has teams around the globe in New York City, London, Amsterdam, and Hong Kong. All of us are working hard to make zkipster the industry standard — if only, it wasn’t so tricky to spell. Here’s a little peek behind the scenes at just how zkipster came to be.
