Focusing on bringing continuous innovation and world-leading products and functionality to our customers around the world
From the planning phase to operations, the exponential influx of people and information we need to keep track of at all times is sure to keep us on our toes. But rather than struggle when things start going uphill, the continuous development of event technology is giving us the tools to line up our resources so we can avoid wasting precious time and energy fishing for that updated run sheet or evacuation plan when we need it most.
Running an event is an extremely complex process and without the right person pulling the strings, the chances of it being a success are slim.
As someone who has the responsibility in hiring an external event manager, how do you know if they’re going to be the right fit and what do you need to look for to ensure their goals align with yours?
To help make the decision easier for you, check out the steps below:
As part of an ongoing relationship to effectively scale out their event operations, Sanitarium partnered with Blerter for the 2019 Weet-Bix Kids TRYathlon. Designed for Kiwi kids aged 7-15 years to help them stay active and healthy through a programme of participation. The series has been successfully running for 27 years and has seen over 350,000 Kiwi kids flock to the start line. Participants get to swim, cycle and run their way around age-appropriate courses, either as an individual or as part of a team of two.
As part of an ongoing relationship to help secure and optimize events, EventCover are partnering with Blerter to align best practice in risk management and event technology.
Influencer marketing is widely regarded as one of the most effective techniques for brand and production promotion, due to the audience reach that stems from it. Sponsored posts on social media seem to be the norm but companies are now starting to see the value when working with influencers to promote events. An example of this can can be seen in the latest Netflix doco, Fyre Festival. Fyre's influencer campaign has many divided opinions to whether it was a success or not but if you look at the stats they definitely favour the latter. The purpose of this post is to help you effectively use influencer marketing to promote your event to avoid another Fyre Festival repeat.
Fyre Festival takeaway lessons round 2. The latest doco 🔥 has so many things to critique that we thought it would be fitting to expand our event knowledge into a 3 part mini-series. You could write a book on how much of an abomination Fyre Festival really was but for the purpose of part 2, we want to guide your attention towards the importance of event team management.
