Top 4 Trends in Conference Planning for 2016

We're halfway through 2016 and trends for conference planning are already well established. If your event isn't until later in the year, you might need expert assistance to help stay on trend. You've come to the right spot. Without further ado, here are top four trends for conference planning we've noticed as a venue finding agency in the UK! Unique Locations Nowadays everyone wants to be a part of something 'unique'. When it's time to select a conference venue in London, you'll want to keep that in mind. While event venues serve their purpose, they aren't exciting. This year everyone is booking conference venues that stimulate the senses. Get out of the box. Think warehouses and rooftops. Don't bore your audience. The more memorable your location is, the more likely it is your guests will remember your brand. Wi-Fi! Every tech blog on the internet is emphasising the importance of mobile. Your guests can't use it if you don't offer Wi-Fi. Help your guests save on data by choosing a space with a free connection. Having a hotspot is only half the battle. Do a test run to make sure it works properly. The last thing you want is keyed off guests who can't use their phone. Eco-Friendly Does the conference venue in London you selected offer recycling? Well, it should. Attendees use information from every source to make a decision about using your business. Don't waste this opportunity to show them who you are. If you care about the environment, select an event space that shares your values. Use recycled products for food and drink, and encourage your attendees to recycle. Eco-friendly everything is a trend that's here to stay. Entertainment Engaging your audience is not as easy as it once was. People are more sophisticated than ever. Ditch the slideshow video for something more tangible. Launch a pre-event community page where you encourage excitement about your conference. Show people why they want to come, and they'll be more likely to show. Some businesses even hold intermissions and add live music or karaoke to get everyone working as a team. Do whatever it takes to engage your attendees. With 2017 just around the corner, we look forward to exploring the conference trends of the coming 12 months. Let us know what you think of the latest trends, and how you plan to implement them, in the comments below!
