6 Allow Attendees to Share Feedback
When all proper safety norms are not followed by the guests, you need to take the responsibility of the safety of all guests seriously, as the risk of COVID-19 is still there. It would help if you allowed the in-person event attendees to report any non-compliance quickly and effectively.
For instance, if an attendee is not satisfied with the breaches of social distancing norms by others, they should be able to report it to you or your team so you can take prompt action. Similarly, if the attendees are not comfortable with buffet dining and want seated dining with staff members trained in food handling measures, you need to give them that option.
It would help if you also had some actions in place for attendees who risk their own safety and the safety of others. It could include strict measures like removal from the event venue.
7 Post-Event Follow-Up Boosts Future Attendee Participation
The safety measures shouldn’t stop even when an event is over. You should stay in touch with in-person event attendees and consider doing a post-event survey about the safety measures followed at the event. Most people will attend an event organized by you in the future if they felt safe and comfortable during the event. Also, work on any negative feedback you receive to improve future attendee participation.
You can use the feedback shared by the attendees while creating future content for attendees. For instance, if an attendee says that “Your team deftly followed the safety protocols,” you can use it as a testimonial that can be added to marketing materials to boost the confidence of the future audience that is considering attending the in-person event.
How do you drive attendance to an in-person event?
In the current climate, you can do that by having COVID-19 safety precautions in place and ensuring in-person event attendees feel comfortable with those.
How popular are in-person events?
Though the popularity of in-person events had reduced due to COVID-19, and it paved the way for more virtual and hybrid events, in-person events are coming back, and they are here to stay.
What are good promotional ideas?
To promote the safety measures of your in-person events, you need to maintain direct communication with every in-person event attendee. Also, use the power of social media to promote your event.
Communicating with attendees about all the safety measures you have taken to prevent the spread of COVID-19, creating effective content that reminds them of the safety protocols, and ensuring their safety pre, during, and post an event are essential in today’s climate. Taking a few simple steps will make in-person event attendees more comfortable, and they will be more likely to attend a future event hosted by you.
