Thankfully advances in technology have made event planning easier in all sorts of ways and making sure you are keeping up with advancements when you organize your next event. This means you will be remembered for organizing innovative and memorable events that are talked about by attendees well after it has finished. 

Here are 4 reasons to use smart new technology solutions while planning and marketing your next event.

1. Smart Streaming

In this era of lockdowns and social distancing harming the entertainment industry, the use of technology and the internet has allowed at least some events to go ahead, bringing much needed stress relief to people's lives. Streaming concerts and theatre productions can get the fun right into your living room for a small cost, with the advertising and ticketing also being handled seamlessly online. Businesses can also take this streaming technology and run corporate events such as seminars and conferences in a similar manner, allowing for growth and advancement in a safe and uncomplicated way. 

2. Top Tools And Advantageous Apps

No longer do you have to carry around a large Filofax of contacts and suppliers' numbers plus binders full of paperwork and samples while waiting on the snail mail to deliver necessary contracts and invites. Now the best event planning apps and tools enable you to take care of all of that from the convenience of your smartphone or laptop, as vital paperwork can be emailed instantly and work progress can be synced across your whole team, keeping everyone on the same page at all times. 

3. Better Budgeting

Managing your event budget is essential, and now this is easier than ever to do as you can keep a record of all outgoings in the same place as the rest of your paperwork, no need for a separate ledger and having to cross-reference between various pieces of paper. This streamlined approach also allows you to save money as you can quickly refer back to the finances of past similar events and see how you can make savings going forward. Any problems that crop up during the planning stage can also be dealt with much quicker, potentially saving money from being spent unnecessarily. 

4. Social Selling

It becomes easier to market an event when you use up-to-date platforms such as social media. Social media was in its infancy 15 years ago, so big events had to be advertised directly to the general public or companies who might fall under their remit, which took up a lot of time and money, but now most people and companies are on at least one social media network. By tapping into this with fresh and exciting advertising campaigns, you can reach a wider proportion of the relevant audience for little outlay and great returns. Social media is also a great way to link up with potential sponsors and suppliers for business events, allowing you to build a good relationship in a more personal way than just phone calls and emails allow for. 

Event Excellence With Top Tech

The verdict is in: technology is essential for even organization. Use top tech options for your next social and business events planning for better results.
