What are some ways to invigorate your annual events?
Annual events are awesome from a planning perspective because you can start with the previous year's plan, make a few tweaks and get to work implementing the plan. Everyone is familiar with the planning timeline and often there are just minor tweaks that need to be made. The biggest risk with annual events is that you can easily rely too heavily on what was done in previous years. How many times have you heard or said "We've always done it this way."? In addition to easy implementation, there's comfort and minimized risk in doing things the way you've always done them. However, it's important to mix things up and try something different. The easiest way to start is by looking at the feedback from the previous year.
In addition to the formal evaluation process, it's helpful to casually ask attendees onsite to share their thoughts for improving the event. I often collect some of the best and authentic feedback and suggestions, just by chatting with people throughout the event.
Let's consider 5 ways to spice up your next annual event.
