When you’re planning an event it’s important to look for out-of-the-box ways to spice things up so that your attendees/guests are excited about attending your event. Think about the events that you’ve attended… what made them memorable?
One event that comes to mind for me is The Color Run. Marketing themselves as “The Happiest 5K on the Planet”, this never-attempted event has turned into a phenomenon. People love the idea of “being the first” and saying “I was there when it started.” If you decide to participate in one of their events you know you’re going to have an unforgettable experience! I’d say they bring the #WOWfactor to their events… wouldn’t you?
“Great things are done by a series of small things brought together.”
~Vincent Van Gogh
Here’s some ideas you can use to bring the #WOWfactor your events:
- Have a vision. Any time you’re planning an event, you have the opportunity to create something meaningful for those who will be participating. Put some thought into it and have a vision for your event. Decide to be daringly creative… think “out of the box”.
- Generate a buzz about your event. When you communicate with your potential attendees/guests, get them excited about attending your event. Be creative with your invitations, announcements, promotional materials, email lists, etc.
When you engage in new and exciting ways they’ll want to share their excitement with others.
- Make it unforgettable. Make them feel like a VIP! The experience you provide your attendees/guests is everything! Get creative with a welcome video. Share your story… let them share their stories. Create a closing video. Take photos.
Give them something to remember. When you do, you’ll be known for bringing the #WOWfactor to your events.
