How to run an amazing event an overview of what the best events do
I would like to think that anyone can learn how to run an amazing event.
Even if you are running an annual general meeting, a staff away day, an exhibition, product launch or a conference I see no reason that it can’t be an amazing event.
As an industry we have to move away from the concentrating solely on the logistical aspects that sits behind events, to the environmental factors that underpin experiences.
I believe that anyone can run an amazing event.
When I talk about amazing events I am thinking about ones that excite and entertain; innovate and inform.
I have come to this conclusion after analysing many of the best events in the world.
I’ve looked at the mega conferences, the best festivals and the weird and the wacky one off events.
In total I’ve looked at scores of events across the globe and I’ve created a list of ten things that lie at the heart of those amazing events.
And I’d like to share that initial research with you.
