What’s the first thing that comes to mind when you think of a work conference? While the intention of conferences is usually to inform and engage employees about changes and growth in a company, the effect is often the opposite. Many people only enjoy the time spent away from the office and don’t recall much of the presentations and event beyond what snacks were on offer. So, what can you do to ensure that your next conference is engaging and effective?

Since 2017, Last Man Standing Events has been a strategic partner to Johnson & Johnson Medical Devices, and since then we’ve delivered three high-end conference events. In this article, we borrow from this experience to speak about how you can use digital media and tools for the successful planning and accomplishment of a conference for your company.

Get Ahead Of The Curve With Comprehensive Planning

Times have changed and so has the approach to hosting conferences. The focus has shifted to creating conferences that are more inclusive, allowing staff from all levels to engage with one another through digital platforms. You want to know that you’ll receive a return on your investment from the education, engagement and feedback facilitated through conferences. Email services, digital calendars and other tools are useful, from sending out invitations to sharing noted during the event. It can also be used afterwards to gather information on the perceived success of the event.

Stay On Top Of Things To Ensure They Go Off Without A Glitch During The Conference

Presentations, discussions, and Q&A sessions can also happen seamlessly with the help of digital technology. You can also use social media hashtags as a platform for commentary beyond the conference. With Last Man Standing heading up your conferences, you can rest assured that the connectivity and ROI structured around your conference is a priority for us. We aren’t just a supplier to you but a key stakeholder that will ensure that your conference is delivered without a hitch time and time again.
