So it feels like you have attended a million conferences—and if you have been in the association industry long, you have likely run half of those conferences. After all, each professional association has at least two events every year, right? In this article, we discuss the value of solution designed to help the flow of traffic at large conferences today.
The Value of Kiosk Conference Software
After a while, all the hotel ballrooms begin to blur together (and why are those rooms always designed for dances, not meetings?!).But, you still need to have your ducks in a row, don’t you?
When you think back over what stands out in your memory, out of all those conferences, chances are that it’s not the good times. While you might remember the most entertaining speaker you heard—or overheard, if you were in charge of the event—you probably, at this point, can’t recall who was the headliner at the event you ran last month, much less who was the keynote speaker the year before.
So what stands out? We bet that it’s those times when things just didn’t go right. Perhaps it was the event where they ran out of food at the banquet, or the IT conference where the nearby transformer blew and there was no electricity to run all those fabulously crafted IT presentations.
Or maybe it was the lines. Unfortunately, whenever something does not go right, the end result is usually a loooooong line of unhappy people, who don’t seem to know how to take advantage of the opportunity to network while they stand in line, and spend the time griping instead.
You have to have your ducks in a row, don’t you. Literally!
This is why you need walk up kiosk software to handle registration at your large events. As long as there is electricity available(!), you can ensure a quick and efficient registration process, with no long lines, regardless of whether you have 2500 or 25,000 people attending your event. Kiosk EventXpress handles pre-registration, walk-up, and onsite registration, as well as payments and printing of both badges and receipts. With a well-honed computer program handling all the registration details, there will be no confused volunteers slowing things down and creating long lines at registration.
