Social Media & Mobile Apps are dramatically changing how attendees experience events. Having a deep understanding of how to leverage both during the event life cycle will elevate your events. Century Audio Visual is happy to recommend a link to some resources that are an excellent place to start. Each one has actionable tips for how to harness the power of Social Media & Mobile Apps to take your events to the next level. Social Media has enormous potential to increase visibility and conversion for events. It enriches the live and remote attendee experience and builds loyalty. That’s what drives people to make attending your event a priority. Check out the event management software from global leader Cvent. They've developed numerous software tools for event and meeting planners, marketers and other professionals. Cvent software is used to plan events, find venues, manage membership data, create mobile apps, send surveys and develop strategic meetings management programs.

Events that use large screen presentations have always benefitted from the use of a video camera to “Imag” (image magnification) the presenter’s image at the lectern up onto the big screens. It gives every ‘seat paying’ attendee a clear view of the key activities and keeps action on the screens should there be a lapse in prepared content presentation. So why not take it a step further? Record the presentations, post-package them for short vignettes on your web site, insert them into blogs and social media posts, upload them to sharing sites such as YouTube and use them daily as support references within emails. Over 60% of all web traffic is now video. Websites with video are reported to be 500% more effective in closing the sale. Infomercials should be short, under 2 minutes and deliver a simple and concise message of strong informational value to the viewer. It can be hard to put really good video on the web if you try it yourself. Perhaps it’s not what you are trained to do consideration should be to outsource your video support.
