Everyone’s looking to stay on top of the latest event trends to make their corporate event stand out. You want your event to be one that will keep people talking and gets their interest raised in your product or service. You want them to be looking forward to the next big event you put on!
For that to happen, you want your event to pop – to be memorable and original. One way to do that is to stay on the edge of the latest trends; to take ideas that are new and rising in popularity and give them your own personalized spin. Here are some of the latest trends that the best events are taking into account.
A wide range of opinions and points of view make for a more enriching experience. This is true for any type of seminar, conference or large meeting – a diversity of viewpoint leads to more positive ideas and a wider range of possibilities. These can include traditional areas of diversity such as race or gender, but also professional diversity – having speakers with a wide range of different expertises or areas of focus talking about the same issue allow you to approach the same problem from a variety of different angles and get a more complete look at the topic. Even mixing together attendees from different departments of your own company can create a more diverse experience.
Do you really want an event in Toronto to feel just like an event in Montreal, Vancouver, or Tokyo? A cookie-cutter event is a forgettable event, so use your location to influence the organization and flow of your event. An easy way to do that is by sourcing local food for your event; it’s a sure way to bring some local flavor to your event, literally.
FOMO stand for the “Fear Of Missing Out”. That is to say, it’s the concept of making people think that there is an experience that they can only get if they attend your event – something that they can’t get anywhere else. Maybe that’s a specific piece of advice; maybe it’s a wildcard surprise event; maybe it’s a hands-on experience or piece of tech which can only really be experienced live at your event. One way or another, getting people to fear that they’ll miss something by not attending is a great way to make your event stand out from the crowd.
