I just read a great Event Planning blog, where the group who put on the event used different aspects to catch people’s attention. They called to action the use of all five senses to get people to notice the event. It is awesome that with new technology and traditional aspects, we can use the two different ways to get an event from ordinary to extraordinary.
The different ways an event can catch someone’s attention is to get as much information out of the person putting on the event as possible. Themes are huge these days, and what one can do with these themes is even better. Technology is not only helping create new environments, but it is also helping how people perceive the event.
The idea behind using all five senses with the use of technology and tradition shows the crowd the full theme. The small decorations of the past are not going to cut it any more. Event Planners are going to need to know how to use more complex programs or have staff members knowing how to use the new technology to keep up with the fast changing environments. The more you are up on the market trends, the more people will be able to have their events be successful, which in turn keeps them coming back for more.
The more you go with a clients wants and needs the more marketable your company is. In these rough times, the more word of mouth advertising you can have the better. So go with the technology and add in tradition to have your event turn out great. If at all possible don’t forget to hit all five senses for a sure win!
