5 essentials for delivering spectacular events

Delivering spectacular events blog post by TheVenueShop.com and Ultimate Conferences and EventsExplore new ways of making your events more engaging, more exciting & with greater ROI than ever before. But with so many ‘must-have’ products & technologies available, where to start? To help navigate the many options out there, here are five tips for delivering events to leave a lasting impression...

1. Personalise your event

It’s the little things - personal touches that are vital to making your guests really feel they are special. This could be a small token or gift, unique decorations or customised event multimedia. 

2. Shine a light and make it bright

Lighting is key to establishing the right mood and wow factor in a venue. Lighting creates ambience and directing emotion. Be creative and make your event memorable; think about projecting light onto other surfaces such as tables and walls, project your company logo onto the walls by using a Gobo or consider creating a canvas from a 3D object. 

3. Bring the virtual to life with event technology

Event Projection Mapping

Make your event truly unforgettable by using ground-breaking projection techniques. From 2D and 3D projection mapping to the latest in motion tracking technology - making the unreal real, and bringing your vision to life to truly captivate your audiences. 

4. Don't forget the fifth sense

Touch Screen Technology

Touchable technology creates a connection. First made available in smartphones, the trend for ultra-responsive surfaces has accelerated and can now be incorporated into events. You can use touch screens for challenges or quizzes, encouraging your guests to participate and get actively involved in your event. If you don’t have touchscreen technology, don’t despair. Textured decorative panels can easily be installed to dress your venue’s walls and create stunning features. 

5. All events are social events

The one thing you want from your event is talkability. Use your selected social media channels to boost the impact of your event; use Twitter for live commentary, Instagram and Facebook for eye-catching photos and don't forget to ask your guests to share their photos with your event or nomimated hashtags. Clever social media integration can allow your audience to generate their own content and steer the positive viral tone of the event.
