Every association event lives from the members’ exchange of experience and knowledge and the right location to encourage these synergies. At the same time, associations know the importance of flexible content design, integrating new event formats and association trends, and the value of professional event services. We offer you insights into tips and trends as well as a customised service to ensure your seminar, committee meeting, general assembly or conference is the success you envisaged.

Assocations also profit from innovative formats
Interactive event formats are the latest trend. The classic events usually revolve around standard ‘top down’ communication. Increasingly, they are being supplemented or replaced by innovative event formats. And rightly so, since today’s event formats promote information sharing in a more informal surround. Here, we are presenting six modern event formats offering effective options for new models of interaction and communication.
Nomen est omen: Rotation between lectures, workshops, discussions for independent discussion of contents.
Every association event is only as good as its planning and preparation. Our event planning and association planning services provide neutral and objective information to support you from the very start. Here a few tips in advance:
Cleary formulated SMART goals help you track your progress and measure your event’s success.
A six-month lead time is advisable in any case to avoid unnecessary stress and allow for unexpected setbacks.
Make your draft costs projection as transparent and precise as possible. Calculate in a contingency buffer to cope with those unanticipated costs which nearly always occur.
Define in advance all the tasks and, if necessary, delegate them internally or to external service providers.
Professional attendee management plays a significant part in conserving your resources and achieving your targets for participant figures.
Plan your choice of date strategically with other events in the sector in mind so you can tap into possible synergies.
Compile accurate setup, realisation and responsibility schedules to support your event’s success – and remember to add contact phone numbers!
Allow enough time for setup and trial run-throughs.
At events relying on digital communication, check that the WiFi signals are solid and can cope with the expected usage peaks.
When one event closes, the next is already being planned. Take the time for proper follow up and identify possible improvements.
Ideas, trends & highlights
As an association, your classic format events have produced good results – but you’d still like to integrate a more interactive and modern approach. Then why not enrich your event by selectively adding new elements?
