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

UberConference and Evernote for #Eventprofs and Associations

UberConference-for-Meeting-Planners

Everyone knows that I am a total Evernote freak… Love my Evernote. Conference calls on the other hand… They suck. Fortunately, the folks here at Camp PlannerWire use UberConference which makes the process of talking to many people, on the phone, all at once, suck a whole lot less. Read More

TravelMath is Great Tool for #EventProfs

Travelmath foe Meeting Planners

Travel adds up in many ways. It can be measured in Dollars, Euros, or Rupees and in other ways like miles, meals, or meetings. All have a cost and all have ramifications that meeting and event planners need to consider for the attendee or budget.

When you are first starting the site selection process, most planners will meet with event stakeholders and go over a list of objectives, toss out a few potential destinations, and maybe put together a loose budget. 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

Meeting Planners meet The Wallrus

Meeting Planners Social Media Twitter Wall

I am the Walrus… Coo, Coo, Kachoo. Oh wait, this is not an article about the Beatles. I made a mistake. This is an article about the one thing that everyone should do at events but no one knows how to do, even though the most basic forms of the technology are almost 10 years old . We can fix that, because I am the Walrus… Oh crap, I am not the Wallrus, they are the Wallrus and of course we are talking about Social Media Visualization, AKA, the Twitter Wall, whatever wall, which has now become the Social Media Wall and in this case, the Twitter and Instagram Wall which are really the only two social media streams that matter at a meeting or event and they are now why we to spell Walrus, W-a-l-l-r-u-s. Get it. Corny yes but the tool is cool and corny is the new hip. Just ask anyone that works with me. Read More
