The Hybrid Approach to Tech at Events

The Hybrid Approach to Tech at Events

So in The Art of Check-in, I touched on tech at events and promised to get back to it in another post. Well, that is has turned into two. A discussion of the Hybrid Approach and Full Tech Approach.

With all the different ways tech is apart of my everyday life some think I would be gung-Ho for a fully computerized event. But I'm not.

Take for instance the event that Danico provided registration and check-out services for on March 15. The event was for The Bridge Youth and Family Services, it was their annual gala.

Event Sprint

Event Sprint

The venue is booked, the meal selected, the RSPV's are in, and now is the event sprint for the BIG DAY.  For me this is the best part.  Yeah, you would think the event itself would be the best part, but we know that it will be great even if it isn't.  During the event sprint is where all the months of planning start to come to life.  The centerpieces are no longer materials in bags hanging out, now they are beautiful structures ready to grace the tables.  The equipment is prepped, tested and packed for transport to the venue and the team is briefed on the event timeline.  
Now, is also where contingency planning is done, where we look at worst case scenarios and how to mitigate them.  The goal is to keep things humming along smoothly until the last guest has happily left the event.  
 
With all of that, truly the best part of the event sprint though, is when the client says, "We know you've got us covered". 
 
Yes, we do.
