We’ve provided some recommendations to ensure your event is always inspirational and professionally delivered.
A conference is an ideal way to inspire people. From rousing speeches to awards and welcomed recognition. But how can you keep a conference interesting and engaging for every guest?
1. Choose an Inspirational Venue
Everything rests on the right venue. A great venue should meet your needs but also work to attract attendees. There’s no need to spend hours trawling the internet either, with our free venue finding service, we hand-pick incredible locations and outdoor sites specifically suited to your company requirements – right across the UK.
2. Use the latest technology
Video, images and sound are vital to inspire guests and creating emotional connections that motivate action. We recommend expert audio-visual setup for your conference with a professional on-site technician to keep things running smoothly. An LED wall with multiple screens is great for making an impact at large events and for featuring social media messages and videos throughout the day..
3. Inspirational Keynote Speakers
Enhance your message with a keynote address by an inspirational speaker. If you don’t have a charismatic speaker already on the books, then you can simply hire a speaker to add credibility to your conference or choose to use a professional host to engage the audience and facilitate the event.
4. Set The Scene
Every event needs a theme, whether it’s ‘The Great Journey to Sales Success’ or ‘The Great Gatsby’. Whatever your theme might be, it will act as a main thread throughout your conference event and will be reflected in the colours, room dressing, centre pieces and even props. All of which is handled superbly with professional event theming services.
5. Break The ice
Start your conference how you mean to go on with an ice-breaking activity that inspires and breaks down barriers. We recommend the tribal chanting challenge of the Haka to bring some real energy to your event or for energising delegates after that midday slump. For more ideas, visit our dedicated ice-breaking activities page.
6. Engage & Inspire
If your conference has always been a bit ‘death by PowerPoint’ then do something different this year with team activities that can be used as breakout sessions within your agenda; create amazing memories with the highly energetic Samba Drum workshop or encourage team development with the fun business simulation challenge, Network Links.
7. Socialise & Network
When the business of the day is done, continue to inspire your conference guests with professional evening entertainment for that much needed social aspect. For a structured evening that rounds up the day nicely, why not consider a Murder Mystery Dinner or Game Show; ideal for small to medium delegate numbers. For large conferences, free participation activities work well, such as a classy casino, bandeoke or free play games. We have a great selection of evening entertainment that can be tailored to suit your event.
