In a community, everyone contributes and shares their opinions. That’s one reason communities can bring such value to associations and their members—everyone is involved and has a space at the table.

In fact, your community is the perfect place to get feedback on topics and ideas for your next event. It’s also a guaranteed way to satisfy your core constituents. Asking their opinion on conference themes and topics shows your community that you (1) care what they think and (2) are open to making changes to satisfy their needs.

There are hundreds of mobile event app options and, most of the time, it’s a challenge to tell one event app from another. The app selection process can be overwhelming, but it doesn’t have to be!

Taking a trip these days requires little guesswork. Simply enter a destination into Waze or Google Maps and you’re on your way! The steps to get to your destination are pre-determined and the app chooses the ‘best route’ possible given current traffic conditions and other variables. This gives you the wonderful experience of getting exactly where you want to go without any detours or unwanted pit stops!

Now, imagine if online event registration were as smooth as this.

It IS possible with accurate attendee personas and registration pathways.
