Getting Connected: Social Event Tips & Tricks

July 15, 2018

Event Company Singapore: Creating connections between attendees is a key objective for many events, the event planner has to make sure the right wheels are greased to make connections and conversations happen. It’s time to think outside the box and create an atmosphere that makes people feel comfortable and promotes engagement. Here are some tips and tricks to help your attendees get connected:

Pre-event social interactions

Do everything you can to reduce nervousness while ensuring that everyone has connected with someone in advance. By having active social channels and providing Twitter chats for those attending for the first time, attendees will feel more relaxed, as discussions around a topic or subject area can naturally bring out affinities or interesting debate and better identify who to connect with. Encourage those attending for the first time to arrive half an hour earlier to meet others in the same situation.

Putting your audience first

Understand that not everyone is confident or comfortable in networking situations with some attendees needing more support and encouragement than others. Therefore, try to maximise the opportunities to make new contacts for everyone attending. This could include being matched with someone with similar interests and letting both parties know that they should talk. Group work can be a discreet way of getting people to chat, so have dedicated staff looking out for anyone that looks uncomfortable and be ready to strike up a conversation or introduce them to someone new.

Using technology to bring attendees together

If you have an event app, why not use it to encourage people to reach out to others with similar interests so they have people to look out for at the event. You can set up meetings via some event apps, and also spruce up the networking process by offering points for every person connected with. This can give a fun and gentle nudge to make people more proactive. Also, consider using AI-powered smart matching apps to ease the process and make better matches.
