Saving Money on your next large event

Guest Post from the team at Event Combo software solution to help trim your event budget: 


If you've done an event already, you know how hard it is to get everything to come together. All the logistics involved, from booking the venue, deciding on the date and time to confirming entertainment, partnerships, promotions and ticketing - each event is like a motion picture production. 

You have one event to maximize your profit margins. One slip up and you can end up in a financial loss. 

With all the risks and challenges of organizing events, it isn't good enough anymore to rely solely on ticket sales. 

 That's where EventCombo comes into the picture. Let me explain.

EventCombo sets out to challenge the status-quo and provide creative ideas to organizers, which will not just add value to events but also introduce new ways of increasing revenue.

 

Offer Your Attendees More

 

The current event landscape has become pretty monotonous in terms of what an attendee gets to experience at an event. Your attendees buy tickets and then partake in plenty of other activities around your events, something you are not involved in. Until now!

 

If you offer your attendees more options through your event, chances are pretty good that they will appreciate and avail your additional offerings. This will not only increase your engagement, but grow your bottom line.

 

Examples of what else to offer your attendees include getting them to and from your event via Uber or Lyft. Or ParkWhiz if they are driving in to your event, which lets them choose from many low cost parking garages. If your event requires lodging, then giving them some options on hotels or Airbnb. 

 

This is just the tip of the iceberg. You can also give your attendees additional offers to other products or services, which would be of value and interest to them. Of course, you cannot offer things that would not add value to your attendees experience, otherwise you will lose credibility.
