Every events department in an association is different with every organisation managing their events in a very particular way. Every association will be weighing up the best approach to manage and deliver their events and most are looking at how to improve their events.
There is of course no particular ‘one best way’ to manage an events department in any organisation. However after running several event businesses in associations and completing events consultancy for organisations – as varied as the events they run – we have discovered that there are five areas which organisations can focus on to make more of a success of the association events they run.
How to improve association events
The five keys areas that successful events departments focus on in associations:
1. Understand the power of the events you run!
2. Understand how technology can support your events and your event department
3. Tell people what they are missing not simply what is going on
4. Get the most out of your event organiser / PCO. Be more demanding!
5. Focus on delivering value to ALL of your stakeholders
By looking at the areas outlined above you should be able to focus on how to improve your association events and to take a more subjective view of your events and your events business. Of course this process can be challenging and even daunting but focusing on these five areas will help you improve your events.
Using our experience in each section we can point to what successful events businesses including associations do and we hope that provides a benchmark for your events. So if you think your events have more potential get in touch with Gallus Events. We are confident that we can support you to discover how to improve association events within your department. We would focus on turning your events into experiences and your events department in to a valuable asset for your association.[iphorm id=”8″ name=”Events in 2013 (duplicate)”]
