What to know 4 Tips for Improving Participation at Your Event? Read through our 4 tips on how to improve attendee participation at your next event, including putting on a raffle, hiring the right staff and hosting a Q&A.

Running an event is a great way to connect with people and get your audiences involved in your brand, as well as a prime opportunity to network with other businesses and forge strong partnerships and connections. However, getting people to engage and participate actively at your events can be quite a challenge. In order to help you and your guests get the most out of your next event, we’ve put together 4 top tips for how you can improve participation at your next event.

Run a competition or raffle

An easy way to keep guests engaged and hanging around at your event until the end is to host a raffle or competition of some sort. Let attendees take part throughout the night and then wait until towards the end of your event to announce the winners. This will not only ensure that attendees are more engaged and stay for longer, but can facilitate conversation between people as they talk about the prizes and the competition, which will often lead to a conversation about your event as a whole; leading to more engaged participants.

Have good quality staff

Hiring staff for your event that you know you can rely on is so important if you are trying to run a successful, engaging event. Make sure that all of your participants have the chance to be a part of the action at all of your mass participation fundraising events by hiring a good set of staff that know how to help run this kind of event and make sure that everything goes smoothly. Whatever kind of event you are putting on, hire staff tailored to your event that will be there to support everything you and your attendees do the whole evening.

Host a Q&A

If you’re looking for a way to get everyone involved at a conference or a charity event, basically any event that is looking to share information with participants, then you can never go wrong in hosting a Q&A session. This allows attendees to have all and any of their questions answered and boosts the participation and engagement from your attendees massively. It will also be a great way to support the main purpose of your event, so it’s a win-win really!

Update your socials

Any event you put on should be backed up with social media posts. Nominate members of your business to take turns documenting the event throughout the night, post photos and stories and include polls and ways for your viewers to react. This will not also be a great place to tag attendees and get them involved during the event, but will also make your customer base who are not in attendance feel involved and allow them to get enjoyment out of the event too.

From putting on a raffle to keeping track of the evening across all of your social media, these four top tips on running events should be able to help you boost participation at your next event and make it your best event yet.
