Having a follow-up is as important as planning and later on, hosting a successful event with the help of your team, caterers, tent rentals and round tables rentals. As a host, you ought to thank people for their participation and interest in your event.
Even if your event was a blast, you still need these things to give it a finishing touch.
Send a thank you email to each one of the attendees
Once the event is done, you should write an email to everyone who attended either in person or virtually. You do not have to write a separate email for everyone, however, make sure you address each attendee by their name. People love it when they are made to feel special. Be careful about making this single change in the email body. Other than thanking them, you can ask for quick feedback. You should ask all the people to feel free to talk about any shortcoming that they might have noticed during the event. Just ensure them that you are asking them on a lighter note.
Send a personalized thank-you note with a flower bouquet to all the speakers
All the speakers of the event should be specially thanked for making your event go places. That is the reason you should send them a bouquet of flowers with a thank you note to show your gratitude. They are one notch ahead of the listeners/attendees hence they definitely deserve more than an email. If possible, send a souvenir along with the bouquet and let them remember your event as a special one. Appreciate them for the time and effort that they invested in your corporate event and thank them for a lifetime. Thanking them should be one of your priorities to take care of right after the event.
Figure out whether or not it was a success
You might have heard a lot of positive things from different people but those things might or might not be true. Your attendees praising your event is not the only thing that helps determine the success of your event. Your success depends on whether or not you have achieved all the goals you had in your mind before the event commenced. Therefore, it is important for you to sit down with your team with a pen and notepad in your hand. You cannot allow yourself to party and dance your happiness out before you check all the check marks.
Review the shortcomings, however, minuscule
No event is held perfectly. It would be equal to living in a fool’s paradise to think everything was just in place. Despite knowing that your event was a big success, you must not turn a blind eye towards the shortcomings and minor flaws of your event. You need to be honest with yourself and evaluate everything properly; you need to take note of all your weak areas that could, later on, be covered. You cannot allow yourself to be mesmerized by the success of just one event. For the sake of the future, you need to notice all the microscopic errors that you might have missed out on.
Create a reel walking non-attendees through the whole event
There might be lots of people on social media who initially showed interest in your event but did not bother to become a part of it, they probably deserve to know what they have missed out on. You need to show them the highlights of the event through a reel. Just capture a few important moments from the whole event and turn them into a reel, upload this reel on almost all your social media handles and let people drool over it. It increases the chance of more people attending your events in the upcoming days.
Throw an after-party for your team members
Once you realize everything has fallen in place, what is left to do except for partying at the top of your lungs? You worked hard, didn’t you? Therefore, you deserve to party harder. Also, your team members who tried their best to come up to your expectations deserve a real good tap on the back. They must have remained stressed out throughout the whole time, hence, you have to give them a chance to relax and live their life to the fullest. Mention this in your demand with the event manager and corporate tents rental Maryland for a stress free after party.
