Event planning surveys can definitely help us turn networking events into success. They can provide us with valuable information on what would be best for our attendees in terms of location, time, size of the event and even more. They can also help us confirm the attendance and receive true feedback on our efforts after the event. You, as a host of an event, can utilize the three types of event planning surveys: pre-event, RSVP survey, post-event. These types of surveys will allow you to monitor your events and manage them in a more professional way resulting in a direct path to a success!
- Pre-event surveys can be crafted with questions that would help you decide on the date, time, location, the concept, and the size of your event. When planning events it is essential to know what your guests want and not always what you want. Your assumptions will not help you when choosing how to approach your event. Pre-event surveys can certainly provide you with true and measured feedback. They will aid you in ensuring a successful event that will meet the expectations of the majority of your guests.
- Once people have shown interest in your event, the next step is securing the attendance with an RSVP Survey. It will help you keep track of how many people will be attending, who you can expect to see and help you plan ahead for the amount of food, seats, arrangement and event space.
- It is also important to hear your attendees’ feedback. If you would like to know how well you did, after the event has been held, you can measure the guests’ satisfaction and see if you have met their expectations using the post-event survey. You can ask questions and take notes and see what you could have done better and how you can improve when arranging your future events. Surveys are a great way to collect feedback because they are anonymous and people would feel free to share their opinion without feeling guilty or insecure to lay them out to you.
