When Everybody Contributes, You Get Awesome Results: Boost Interactivity In Your Meetings, Trainings and Events!


Here are the 5 key factors to reach success in meetings, trainings, seminars or conferences

Whether you are a speaker or the organizer of the meeting, you want to deliver memorable presentations, and you want your content to influence and spread. You need therefore your participants to be active, focused and passionate. You need to engage them.

Welcome to interactive events!

 

In their daily lives, people are used to interact constantly, by phone, email, social networks, instant messaging. If their presence do not count, if they are silenced and their reactions ignored, they will prefer to watch you on a video from home… or not at all.

So how to design and build a highly interactive event, where everybody’s presence has meaningful impact?

 

At Evenium, we have helped plan thousands of events and have seen many different attempts for almost 15 years. Since we started working on ConnexMe in 2010, we have tried a lot of things ourselves: one or two screens? Anonymous or not? Moderated? Live or delayed? With dedicated devices? Public or private? For single speakers or only for panelists?

 

Here are the results of our findings on the field, summarized in 5 key factors. The technology is ready, it is now a matter of adoption and good practices.

The usual Q&A format needs to be reinvented: we will show you how to perform much better with the right interactive technology. Let’s start!
