Increasing Attendance Rates (38.5%)
One of the primary challenges for event organisers is translating registrations into actual attendance. This has gotten harder since the pandemic. Autumn Live tackles this issue head-on by offering robust engagement tools. Using registration platforms that provide automated reminders and personalised communication options allow for greater personal choice. Clear comms are a priority – we don’t believe you can over-communicate, as long as the messages actually add value to the reader. Each interaction provides a greater opportunity to keep attendees excited and committed. These strategies enhance the likelihood of converting registrations into active participation, ultimately boosting attendance rates.
Efficient Management of Attendees (32.3%)
Managing attendees before, during, and after events can be a logistical nightmare without the right tools. Autumn Live streamlines this process with intuitive attendee management systems. From easy registration and check-in procedures to real-time analytics, organisers can efficiently oversee every aspect of attendee management. This ensures a smooth and organised event execution, leaving both organisers and attendees with a positive experience. As the incredible Maya Angelou quote goes: “I\’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”
Finding Suitable Venues (27.7%)
Autumn Live recognises the importance of finding the perfect venue to complement an event\’s goals and aligning a venue to your values.

Securing Diverse Speakers (24.6%)
Diversity in speakers contributes to a well-rounded and inclusive event.

It\’s always our preference to get involved with the planning and format of the event from the beginning to ensure a diverse speaker list, so panels and keynotes are inclusive. Ensuring events are enriched with diverse voices and expertise always increases the level of inspiration your attendees leave with and can accelerate action.
