Airports. The Post Office. The DMV. There are a lot of reasons to hate visiting these places, and long lines might be the worst reason of all. Long lines = stress, and that’s not the first emotion we want our attendees to feel when they arrive at our conferences, meetings and trade shows. As an event industry, we need to start thinking seriously about real solutions for our check-in and registration desk woes, unless we risk adding “Attending Conferences” to the list of most-hated activities. Fortunately, innovative event managers are addressing this issue head-on, and are leading the path to new, modernized event arrival experiences.

Outlining solutions that scale all sizes and scopes of events, this webcast will take you on a tour of best practices and better solutions to make your event check-in a modern, seamless experience. You’ve always wondered what you don’t know about event check-in technology, so bring your questions and get the insight you need to improve your registration desk at your next event.

In this webinar you will learn:

  • The new and emerging capabilities for today’s onsite registration tools
  • Equipment needs for events of all sizes, and analysis of buying vs renting
  • How to evaluate your options, from DIY solutions to full-service providers

Earn CEUs: The Events Industry Council has reviewed the learning objectives of this activity and has indicated that attendees will receive 1 CE hours in the Marketing Domain of the CMP or CMP-HC Standards.
