Cheap Event Registration for Small Associations

The Swamp of Event Registration

Wading through the event registration swamp is nasty business. There is quicksand and alligators just waiting to bite or pull the unsuspecting association person under the water at a moment’s notice, taking with them a large chunk of potential revenue.

Instead of mosquitos, conference planners find that they keep getting bitten by per registrant fees, credit card fees, and service fees. You look at some of this stuff and wonder if the registration companies are copying the business model of the airlines.  Read More

Meeting Planner Review – the Poweradd™ Pilot S 12000mAh Portable Charger

the Poweradd™ Pilot S 12000mAh Portable Charger

Electricity. Access to it gives a meeting planner superpowers… I said the same thing in this post and because something was said twice on the internet, it must be true.

Now your skills as a planner are put to the test as you head back to your office, cube farm, or spot at the coffee shop and you start looking for the “where”… One of the ways to choose a destination quickly is by doing the math. That is where having the right tools can serve you well. Read More

How to Use Technology to Entertain and Engage your Conference Audience

Use Technology to Engage Your Audience

How often do you use your phone for anything other than a phone call, text message or email?

Quite often, right? Jump on the tube in the morning and over half the people will be listening to music, playing a game or reading a book on their Kindle app. Most of us can’t make it through a meal without feeling the need to check our phones, so why not give your event attendees a reason to look at a screen.
